Toronto, July 29, 2009- The Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA) viewed with interest the stories that have recently appeared in a number of Ontario newspapers highlighting the newly formed Community Schools Alliance, an initiative of Mayor Doug Reycraft, former president of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario.
OPSBA Vice-President Catherine Fife will be taking this message forward when she speaks later this summer at the Association of Municipalities of Ontario conference in Ottawa.
“OPSBA is extremely pleased to see the issue of collaboration between school boards and municipalities on the table in this very positive way,” said OPSBA Vice-President Catherine Fife. “We will work hard to forge strong links with the municipalities so that we are all working together for children, families and communities.”
