At its June 16 meeting, the TCDSB approved several of the less contentious amendments to its Equity and Inclusive Education (EIE) Policy; these appear in coloured italics on the linked page. The rest were deferred to the board’s August 31 meeting. One of these amendments would have the Board “approve only clubs which have goals that are consistent with Catholic faith and Catholic Church’s moral teachings.”
1) Plan to come in person to the meeting on August 31 (a Wednesday, not the usual Thursday). It’s at the Catholic Education Centre, 80 Sheppard Ave East, a short walk east of Sheppard subway station. The meeting begins at 7:00 PM, but come for 6:30. (See map.)
2) Please call or write your trustee. Say you want him or her to support all of the amendments that Trustees Del Grande and Kennedy proposed earlier. These amendments would commit the school system to providing Catholic moral teachings (as defined by the Catechism and other documents of the Magisterium) within the curriculum and as the reference point for all school-sponsored clubs and events.
Here are the trustees:

Don’t know which school board ward you’re in? (The school wards are numbered differently from the city council wards.) See this PDF map of ward boundaries.
