The Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA) has invited all Members of Provincial Parliament (MPPs) to partake in an opportunity to witness the inspiring and innovative experiences taking place in public schools throughout Ontario’s diverse communities.
Take Your MPP to School Day is taking place during and around the week of May 23 to 26 and celebrates the value of local advocacy and collaboration between school board trustees, school boards, and schools and Ontario’s MPPs.
Discover the Magic of Public Schools: During the May constituency week that follows Victoria Day, we have encouraged all MPPs to visit their local schools and experience the wonder of public education firsthand. Whether it’s an elementary or secondary school, or even an on-site child care center, this is elected representatives’ chance to engage with vibrant educational communities in their ridings.
MPPs will explore public education by attending a school assembly, witnessing a sporting event, visiting a classroom or lab, exploring captivating art exhibits, or delighting in music and drama performances. Each school offers unique opportunities for connection with students, teachers, and administrators who are dedicated to fostering continuous improvement and educational excellence.
At the heart of Ontario’s outstanding public school system lies the dedication of democratically elected local school board trustees. Trustees play a pivotal role in shaping policies and prioritizing initiatives that drive the advancement of education.
