Welcome to HWDSB’s 2015 Director’s Annual Report

In 2014-15, HWDSB continued to embrace district-wide changes to make every school a great school for our students. We have worked toward our goals within each strategic direction: Achievement Matters, Engagement Matters and Equity Matters. We do this to realize our vision of all students achieving their full potential.
