Posted On Friday May 13, 2022

Statement from the Durham District School Board 

It has come to our attention that an individual Trustee, Linda Stone, has made public statements on twitter. The DDSB does not monitor or maintain this account. The comments made are contrary to the commitment, values and actions of the Durham District School Board and our responsibility to promote and respect the Ontario Human Rights Code. We strive to create learning and working environments that are safe, equitable, inclusive, respectful and welcoming of all identities.   

We recognize the historical and ongoing oppression that individuals face because of systemic oppression, discrimination and racism. The District acknowledges past and current traumas and is committed to building a system that celebrates, supports, respects, affirms, and embraces the diverse identifies of students and staff.
