John Cabot Catholic Important Updates

Pupil Accommodation Review Policy Public Consultation:
The Ministry of Education released the new Pupil Accommodation Review Guideline (PARG) in March 2015. This guideline sets expectations for all school boards on managing and reviewing underutilized school space, including potential school closures, and for the greater coordination and sharing of planning related information between school boards and other community partners.

The guideline requires all school boards in the province to develop or revise Pupil Accommodation Review Policies and to invite public input into the policy before it is finalized.

A survey to collect feedback on the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board’s draft amended Policy 6.51 Pupil Accommodation Review will be available for review and comment on the Board’s website at until 4:30 pm on Friday, October 16, 2015. Supporting documents will also be available for reference and review. Please consider reviewing and providing input on this policy.

Terry Fox WALK/RUN:
On Tuesday, September 29 the students and staff of John Cabot Catholic Secondary School had a wonderful experience celebrating the memory of Terry Fox by walking (and some running) in the area surrounding the school. Thank you to all members of the community, students, parents and staff who generously contributed approximately $3000 (and still counting).

Say NO to Bullying @ Cabot:
To promote a positive school community, this Online Reporting Tool has been created so students who become aware of bullying incidents or other negative behaviours that impact the school environment can report them.

When you fill out this form, you are not required to provide your name or any other information that identifies you. If the information is provided anonymously, it may be dealt with in a general way, as there may be no means to respond specifically if limited information is provided.

In some cases, if you are identifiable based on the information provided, the school principal/vice-principal may approach you to provide more information on a confidential basis. If you choose to identify yourself in the reporting process, the principal and/or vice-principal may follow up directly with you.
