The below is from the TDSB school councils FB discussion group. The response is from the Ministry to a question about PRO grant funding.

Another school year is ahead of us! The first school council meetings will be held this month as well as the first PIAC meeting on Tue Sep 25, 7pm. There are a few topics that are upcoming for review at the TDSB. As PIAC rep I would love to hear your thoughts on the importance of these topics to you and your children.
