Educating and Inspiring… heart, mind, body, and soul!

Your child’s education: A parent guide to our school system – from the Ministry of Education

Your voice is important in your child’s learning, and can make all the difference in their academic and personal success. When parents play an active role in their child’s education, students are inspired to achieve their full potential.

Ontario is committed to increasing accountability and transparency for parents and families.

Here are ways you can actively participate in your child’s education journey:

  • Decide which type of publicly funded school they attend
  • Choose learning options, for example, secondary school programs (e.g. Specialist High Skills Majors)
  • Follow what your child is learning in school
  • Learn about key dates in the school year
  • Opt out of certain learning
  • Know how your child is doing in school
  • Learn about suspension and expulsion processes
  • Attend a school council meeting or parent involvement committee meeting
  • Know about specialized supports to help all children succeed
