by step guide for parents/guardians:
Step 1: The issue or concern is to be discussed with the classroom teacher.
Step 2: If the parent/guardian and the teacher are not able to resolve the issue, it will be discussed with the school Principal. The Principal will gather facts to clarify the problem and work to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.
Step 3: If the parent/guardian and the school Principal are not able to resolve the issue, contact is made with the school Superintendent. The Superintendent will review the matter as it relates to established policies and procedures and respond to the parent/guardian and Principal about the concern.
Step 4: If the parent/guardian and the Superintendent are not able to resolve the issue, the parent/guardian may request the matter be reviewed by the Director of Education.

I have concerns about the Ministry's updated Health and Physical Education Curriculum. How will it be implemented in our Catholic Schools?
For over 35 years, Catholic schools in Ontario have been teaching a family life program which covers human development and sexual health. Under the guidance of the Catholic Bishops of Ontario, the Fully Alive program was written to provide a distinct Catholic framework for family life education. Our Family Life program is closely tied with our Religious Education program, is embedded across curriculum areas, and is designed to encourage children to become the people God wants them to be – to be fully alive.
As a publicly funded Catholic school system in Ontario, we teach all curriculum through the lens of our faith. Human development and sexual health are no exception. As Catholic educators, we understand that parents and guardians are the primary educators of their children and their role in the teaching of family life issues is pivotal and vital. In our Catholic school system, parents, the Church and the school cooperate in supporting our vision of life through our Fully Alive Program.
As a Catholic school community, we will continue to offer a holistic curriculum that is shaped by a Catholic work view, and is faithful to the tradition and teachings of the Church.
You can find more information on the Fully Alive Program by visiting the Ontario Bishops' website at: http://www.acbo.on.ca/englishweb/fullyalive.htm
