The creation of the Transition Committees is an integral process in the opening and closing of HWDSB schools. It gives the community an opportunity to voice their collective thoughts, consideration of all the diverse views of the community and students to make the transition as seamless as possible. This is the reason that trustees insist on Transition Committees and the minutes are reported to the Board of Trustees.
The purpose of the Transition Committee is to represent the community, provide input, advice and recommendations, however the final decisions are made by the Principal and Superintendent.
A brief synopsis of the Transition Committee topics of discussion include:
- Artifacts and school traditions
- Opening/closing ceremonies
- Student transition activities
- Traffic and transportation issues
- Accommodation and program issues
All Transition Committee meetings are open to the public, however public members will have no voting rights.
