The Director’s Annual Report is an opportunity to share how HWDSB progressed in the five Strategic Directions outlined in the 2022 Board Annual Plan. It is also a chance for students, staff, families, and community members to revisit some of the stories, achievements, and projects that defined the last 12 months.

Sheryl Robinson Petrazzini, Director of Education, has shared a message about the report that you can read below.

2021-22 director's annual report cover with collage of photos from the yearIt would be an understatement to say that 2022 was a year of transitions at Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB). 

Students, staff, families, and community members continue to transition out of the height of the pandemic and back into in-person learning spaces that have renewed focuses on literacy activities, STEAM-based (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) education, communication commitments, and facility improvements. 

Times of transition happened at various moments throughout the school year. Whether it was the return to school in September, the final days as departing students celebrated commencement, or a transition into a new school building, positive changes are always taking place at HWDSB. 

HWDSB completed a major transition in August when it welcomed a new Director of Education. I have already made stops around the community to visit schools and partners, and my passions for Indigenous Education, student voice, and human rights and equity will continue to be at the forefront of my work. 

As we come to the end of this calendar year and prepare to enter 2023, HWDSB is getting ready to embark on a process that will support the transition to new Strategic Directions, as the current ones have been in place for six years. The development and implementation of new Board priorities will involve extensive consultation. We will share more information about this process in January 2023. We look forward to igniting imagination and efforts as we co-create directions that will help guide HWDSB students, staff, families, and community members for years to come. 

It can be difficult to capture all the wonderful projects, stories, and achievements from a 12-month period, but the Director’s Annual Report aims to accomplish this feat. 

Read the 2021-22 edition to learn how HWDSB progressed in the five Strategic Directions outlined in the 2022 Board Annual Plan: Positive Culture and Well-Being, Student Learning and Achievement, Effective Communication, School Renewal and Partnerships.
