When you find a school that looks like an excellent fit for your child, it is a good plan to visit to see classrooms and meet faculty and staff.

Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting:
The Ministry of Education has provided direction for assessing, evaluating, and reporting student education during school closures. HWDSB shares the Ministry’s expectation that students will do their best to complete all work assigned as learning resumes. Learners and families should always connect with their teachers if they have questions about assessment and evaluation.
Educational assistants are one resource that is allocated to schools to assist in meeting the diverse needs of pupils. Each school’s diverse needs are reviewed, and EA allocations are determined based on need and possible resources. If you think your child requires extra support, please interact with the principal. The principal will determine the help that may be provided to meet your child’s needs.
