What is the Ethnocultural Community Network?
The Ethnocultural Community Network (ECN) is an umbrella group for ethno-cultural communities within the TDSB. The mandate of the ECN is to work with ethno-cultural communities and the TDSB staff to develop and support the implementation of a plan of activities that will enhance the successful integration and academic success of children of parents of the ethno-cultural communities represented in the Network in TDSB schools.
The ECN volunteers & support staff meet several times a year to discuss issues of interest to parents from ethno-cultural communities whose children may not be succeeding in school as well as they should be and those who are succeeding.
Discussion topics include:
- Settlement issues
- English as a Second Language
- International Languages and Cultural Programs
- Academic Success for Minority Students
- Other topics of interest to the Network
The next meeting of the ECN will be held on Tuesday, November 27 starting at 6:30 with a light dinner. The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm.
