OPSBA’s I ❤️ Public Education Video Contest

In an effort to showcase the diversity of voices in public schools across the province, the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA) and Ontario Student Trustee Association’s (OSTA-AECO) Public Board Council is asking participants to submit a short clip (three to five seconds) holding a small sign with the phrase/image: “I ❤️ Public Education!” Participants can write this in their “first language” (which may or may not be English) or any non-English language typically spoken at home.

OPSBA statement regarding COVID-19 health and safety

As cases of COVID-19 continue to rise across Ontario, including in our public schools, we are strongly urging all students and staff to wear a face covering indoors when at school. We continue to look to public health officers for direction on this important issue, and relay to them our very strong concerns about the health and safety of our students and staff.
