Elementary & Secondary Principals
The Peel board is one of the fastest growing boards in Canada. If you are interested in applying for a position of responsibility, applicants are strongly encouraged to review the documents listed below which outline the board's process for hiring.
Update as of October 20, 2015
Please note that we will
not be holding a secondary Principal and Vice-Principal promotion process during the Winter of 2015-2016.
At this time, there are a number of candidates in the “ready pool” for both secondary Principal and secondary Vice-Principal positions. Rather than placing more people in this pool, we have decided to hold on the promotion process for those positions in order to allow time to place existing people.
It is anticipated that this promotion process for secondary Principal and Vice-Principal will resume in the fall of 2016.
Promotion Process - External Candidate Information Session
Monday, October 26, 2015, 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Mississauga Grand Banquet Hall 35 Brunel Rd, Mississauga, ON L4Z 3E8
Light refreshments will be served.
Note: Restricted to participants outside the Peel District School Board
This information session is intended for participants who may be interested in applying for elementary and secondary vice-principal and principal positions in Peel within the next three years. The session will offer participants an overview of Peel District School Board system goals and system planning for student success and will outline the Peel promotion process.
The evening will include an opportunity to meet members of the senior administration team as well as vice-principals and principals currently working in Peel.
There will be presentations that highlight key messages related to Teaching and Learning, Climate for Learning and Working, and Leadership for Learning. Following the presentations participants will be invited to join informal roundtable discussions facilitated by elementary and secondary vice-principals and principals.
To register, visit the board's e-register page. Need more information? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will notice some changes as we are currently undergoing a review of the Promotion Process. This is part of “The Journey Ahead Action Plan” to develop more equitable hiring and promotion practices and procedures. Additional changes will be made over the coming year as we fully implement the action plan. Please check back frequently to ensure that you have the most updated version.

Commitment to Equity
The Peel District School Board is committed to equity in employment. We are committed to equitable hiring practices that allow us to hire qualified staff who reflect the full diversity of the Region of Peel. We will make any reasonable accommodation, based on any of the human rights protected grounds, to support candidates to participate in the hiring process.
When contacted, candidates will be provided with an overview of the various elements of the selection process, such as tests and skill demonstrations. We will provide employment accommodation (i.e. an accessible location, rescheduling of interviews that fall on holy days) if we are advised of an applicant's needs in advance of any part of the selection process.
Criminal Record Check
For the safety of students, successful candidates will be required to submit a satisfactory
criminal record check prior to the commencement of any employment duties. Recent changes made by the RCMP have resulted in significant processing delays for some candidates. You may wish to start the process to obtain your criminal record check as soon as possible.
