1/11 Human Rights Annual Report 2018 - 2020 to be presented @tdsb PSSC Wednesday, Feb 17 now posted - first of its kind... tdsb.on.ca//Leadership//B… #NoRoomForHate
2/11 In June, 2019, @tdsb Trustees unanimously voted on a Motion – Dealing With Incidents of Racism and Hate. As a result, the TDSB developed the Reporting and Responding to Racism and Hate Incidents Involving or Impacting Students in Schools (PR728) tdsb.on.ca/AboutUs/Detail…
3/11 PR728 sets clear expectations about the processes to be followed and @tdsb’s responsibilities in situations where there are acts of racism and hate. The procedure supports the Board’s Human Rights Policy (P031) tdsb.on.ca/AboutUs/Detail…
4/11 As part of this @tdsb Motion, Trustees requested that the Director present an annual report documenting incidents and actions with regard to dealing with racism and hate in schools and how students learned from such.
5/11 This HRO Report includes the reporting of incidents of racism and hate in @tdsb schools - It may seem counter-intuitive that I am so proud of this Report given the statistics within it give cause for deep concern, but I am. If we don’t speak to the issues of systemic racism
6/11 If we do not track incidents of hate, and more importantly if we do not deal with them and commit to educating students and communities as a result, then we will are not committed to change... tdsb.on.ca//Leadership//B…
7/11 In the 20/21 school year, @tdsb implemented the Racism, Bias and Hate (RBH) Portal – an online system which enables detailed incident reporting on racism and hate incidents involving or impacting students in schools... we expect reporting of even more incidents.
8/11 The @tdsb data show us incidents citing #antiBlack racism exceeded all other incidents reported by a wide margin. Incidents of #Antisemitism have risen at an alarming rate as have incidents of #homophobia tdsb.on.ca//Leadership//B…
9/11 The reporting of this data & @tdsb actions taken to address these incidents of racism and hate in our schools is critical to dismantling systemic racism. As it states in the Report, "we must be relentless in addressing each and every one of these incidents." #NoRoomForRacism
10/11 "In order for every one of our students & staff to flourish, we have a duty to create schools & workplaces which are free of discrimination, harassment & hate. This is what every student & staff member @tdsb deserves. More importantly and significantly, it is their right."
11/11 Read @tdsb Human Rights Annual Report 2018-2020 to see how we are addressing incidents of racism and hate – As Elie Wiesel said, "Action is the only remedy to indifference: the most insidious danger of all." tdsb.on.ca//Leadership//B…

While this is true (tdsb.on.ca/Community/How-…) it is important to note that this work was completed before the break - this work related specifically to Covid-19 precautions -@tdsb spends millions on mechanical system upgrades as part of our school renewal program... 1/5
... and those upgrades include replacing existing mechanical ventilation components and building automation systems... but replacement of mechanical system upgrades takes months to plan and implement and funding... 2/5
... in the last FBEC there were two reports - facility contract awards notes that although we have spent $12M on mechanical upgrades in 20-21 so far, there remains a renewal backlog in mechanical of over $1.4B (tdsb.on.ca/Leadership/Boa…)... 3/5
