New! The 2022-2026 Good Governance Guide

The 2022-2026 Good Governance Guide for trustees, school boards, directors of education, and communities is now available!

OPSBA, in partnership with the Ontario Education Services Corporation (OESC), is excited to announce the release of this comprehensive guide, which has been expertly crafted to provide school trustees with the knowledge they need to effectively govern and lead their school boards. The fully updated Good Governance Guide will be distributed directly to school boards as a resource for trustees and boards for the 2022-2026 term of office.

Tentative agreement reached with CUPE

The Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA) is pleased to announce that the Council of Trustees’/School Board Associations (CTA) and the provincial government have successfully negotiated a tentative settlement on central terms of a collective agreement with Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) education workers.

OPSBA statement regarding bargaining with CUPE

“It is extremely disappointing that we have not been able to reach a negotiated agreement at this time among CUPE, the Crown and the employer. As a result of the anticipated strike action, schools in many of our member boards will be forced to close to students for in-person instruction tomorrow, and for the duration of this strike action by CUPE members. Where schools are closed to in-person learning it is because they are unable to maintain the healthy and safe operation of schools for students without these critical education workers. We hope this disruption is short-lived and that we can get back to in-person learning as soon as possible.”

Honouring the second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30, 2022, marks the second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. On this day, schools and school boards across Ontario, including students, staff, and school communities, will be commemorating the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools, which more than 150,000 First Nations, Métis, and Inuit children were forced to attend between the 1870s and 1997.

Vote for Investments in Education

The policies and decisions of Ontario’s next provincial government will affect the world our children and youth will inherit tomorrow. They also affect their opportunities to get a good education today.

Throughout the provincial election campaign, I’ve been encouraging all voters, and especially parents, students, seniors, and other members of school communities, to learn about the critical issues impacting Ontario’s public schools before Election Day on June 2.
