April 12 is a PD Day for all teaching and paraprofessional staff

Friday, April 12, 2019 is a professional development (PD) day for elementary and secondary school staff. Students will not attend school, and all Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) operated before and after school programs will be closed.

Elementary Teachers will participate in a full day of professional development planned by the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO), while professional development for secondary teachers is being planned by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF/FEESO). Teachers will attend off-site sessions offered by ETFO and OSSTF.

All paraprofessional staff (EA/CYW/DECE) and elementary occasional teachers will also be participating in off-site, full-day professional development sessions.

Our before and after school programs will not be operating so that our staff are able to participate in these important learning and training opportunities. For community operated before and after school programs, please verify closure dates with your provider.
