Board Meetings

Durham District School Board (DDSB) Board of Trustees meet regularly throughout the school year. They hold Standing Committee meetings and Board meetings on a monthly basis. There are also additional committees that meet and present reports to Board and Standing Committee meetings. View our board and committee meeting schedule and agendas for a full list of upcoming meetings and discussion topics.

Public participation

Members of the public are welcome to attend any public Board or Standing Committee meeting. If you would like to make a presentation at a Standing Committee meeting, you need to submit your presentation to the Trustee Services Coordinator, Trustee's Office at least 8 working days before the next scheduled meeting of the Standing Committee.

We will consider presentations related to the following topics:

  • Finance and transportation
  • Property and planning
  • Programs and curriculum inquiries

We will not accept any presentation on confidential matters relating to:

  • An individual student
  • An individual staff member
  • Negotiations between staff members

If your presentation is approved, it will be added to the agenda. You will have a maximum of 15 minutes to present your topic. For more information, you can email us or call us.

Question period

Every Board meeting includes a public question period. To ask a question, you will need to complete a public question form. These forms are available at the meetings. You must submit the form before the meeting begins.

There is no public question period during Standing Committee meetings.
