News From Sheila Cary-Meagher's Office

Sheila Cary-Meagher's office ha shared the below information about upcoming events and happens in the TDSB. Please read below for a summary of the notices.

1. Parent Representative Participation Sought for Vice-Principal Interviews

TDSB includes a Parent Representative on Vice-Principal Interview Committees (this is for teachers applying to become VPs). The Parent Involvement Advisory Committee feels that parent voices in these interviews are important in building good relationships with administrators early on and in reflecting the importance of parent/community involvement/partnerships as integral components of a school administrator's responsibilities.

The Process and Interview Training Session is scheduled for Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm at 5050 Yonge in the Boardroom. (Attendance is mandatory in order to participate as a Parent Representative on a VP Interview Team)

Principal/Vice-Principal interview dates are currently scheduled for Tues. Feb. 26, Thurs. Feb. 28, and Tues. Mar. 5, 2013. The interview day begins with a team caucus at 8:00 am and the last interview of the day will commence no later than 3:30 pm.

All interviews are held at 1 Civic Centre Court (Burnhamthorpe and Hwy #427).
·  hold all dates until interview date is determined 
·  interview teams and alternates will be informed by e-mail at least 1 week prior to the interview e
· you will likely not be scheduled for more than one day and all applicants may not be required

If you would like to participate in these interviews, please complete the Expression of Interest and return it to Joyce Harrison either by email to joyce.harrison@tdsb.on.ca, or by fax 416-397-3679, no later than January 25, 2013.
