Community of Character

A Community of Character

The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board's "Community of Character" is a set of attributes that were discussed and chosen by a myriad of stakeholders. These ten attributes were selected as they were the ones deemed to be of most importance to the OCDSB and have now been built into our Board Code of Conduct Policy. It is important to acknowledge that these attributes have been selected however; the Character Committee recognizes that this list is in no way exhaustive. The purpose of these attributes is to provide a standard of behaviour against which all individuals in the OCDSB hold themselves accountable. These attributes are what will bind us together and permeate all that we do. We believe they are the foundation for excellence and equity in education and are the cornerstone of our vision for our school communities. In conjunction with our mission statement, "Educating for Success - Inspiring Learning and Building Citizenship," our character attributes are the stepping stones to building our community of character.
