We are pleased to partner with the Ottawa Carleton District School Board to present "Equity in Education: What is it, and why does it matter for your family" as part of the Parents Reaching Out grants for OCDSB School Councils.
Your school council Chair will send you a link to the Zoom webinar on your school's designated night.
Let's meet the speakers!

Sabrin Saraj is an Early Childhood Educator with the OCDSB. Her experiences as a newcomer to Canada in the Ottawa public school system shaped her desire to pursue a career in education.
