"We look forward to working with the Ministry of Education's reviewers as they look into issues raised by this board, the Director of Education, staff, students and community members. The mandate of the reviewers is to provide observations and recommendations to the Minister of Education on issues of human rights, equity and racism, specifically anti-Black racism, human resources practices, leadership, and issues of governance and trustee conduct," says Chair of the Board Stan Cameron. "The Peel board takes these matters very seriously and welcomes the opportunity to work with the reviewers in an open and transparent manner. We remain committed to providing Peel board students and staff with safe, welcoming and inclusive learning and working environments that inspire all students and staff to succeed."
