Equity and Inclusion

The mission of the UCDSB is to prepare all students for a successful life.

As outlined in the Board’s Character Always strategy, the UCDSB believes in the pursuit of learning while building a strong sense of caring and respect for all. By adhering to our Character Always virtues, the UCDSB is committed to reducing achievement gaps and improving learning outcomes for all students, regardless of race, class, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and other historical forms of marginalization.

The UCDSB and its staff are also committed to the elimination of all types of discrimination as outlined in Ontario’s Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy and the Ontario Ministry of Education Policy/Program Memorandum No. 119.

The UCDSB recognizes that equity of opportunity and equity of access to the full range of programs, the delivery of services, and resources are critical to the achievement of successful educational and social outcomes for those served by the school system as well as those who serve the system.

The UCDSB is therefore committed to an equitable education system that upholds and reflects the principles of fair and inclusive education which should permeate all policies, programs, practices, and operations.
