PRO Grant Thematic Resources

PRO Grant Thematic Resources
Posted on 02/06/2024

We have developed a list of resources to help School Councils learn more about the PRO Grant thematic areas, including anti-racism, equity, food sovereignty, mental health and well-being, early literacy and numeracy, and more. These thematic areas align with key priorities outlined by the Ministry of Education and with OCDSB objectives. 

This list resource list includes websites, videos, and audio clips that provide in-depth information on each topic. All School Councils are encouraged to explore these resources to gain a deeper understanding of the initiatives and opportunities associated with each theme.
