The goals were developed by DDSB trustees in consultation with community stakeholders and reflect the priorities in our school communities.
 
The Operating Plan provides direction and guidance to senior staff in examining existing practices and considering opportunities for new initiatives and growth of programs already in place. Senior DDSB staff review the goals in October and use the annual operating plan to provide a foundation for development of department goals for the year.
 
The DDSB develops an Annual Operating Plan as a requirement of the Ministry of Education.
