programs, visit the Central Student Interest Programs website.
Virtual Secondary Alternative Schools Fair: This session took place on November 9, 2022. This session focused on introducing families to the Alternative schools that offer Grade 9 to 12 programming. Alternative schools are highly engaged, smaller school environments. They use non-traditional hands-on approaches to learning. Each school has a distinct identity and focus. Alternative schools are ideal for students seeking an alternative to mainstream education and who want to take an active role in their own learning. Visit the Alternative Schools in the TDSB website for more information. To view the recording of the webinar, click here.
If the webinars reach capacity, families can watch the live YouTube stream. The recording of this event will be available on the TDSB Guidance site.
