Ignite Learning
Excellence in teaching and learning from Kindergarten to secondary school graduation is the foundation to improving student achievement and supporting well-being. Collectively, we are determined to ignite learning to meet our strategic goals: Increase Student Achievement and Well-Being, Constructively Engage the Community, and Advance Inspired Leadership. 

As we seek to ignite learning, the Durham District School Board is committed to the belief that every learner can and will be successful as we implement innovative, evidence-based practices in teaching and learning designed to respect and promote the diversity of all learners. A continued emphasis on engaging students and promoting parent/community involvement strengthens and enriches student learning opportunities, while ensuring that a safe and inclusive learning environment promotes success and well-being for all. To enhance creativity and promote critical, high level thinking skills, learning is enriched and supported through the integration of technology across all disciplines. Learners are supported and engaged in work and activities to prepare them for success in a 21st century society.

Durham District School Board provides programs for students of all ages, from opportunities for our earliest learners, before they even begin school, to Continuing Education for adults.
