Ontario is helping parents in Scarborough-Guildwood get involved in their children’s education by supporting local initiatives to encourage learning and well-being.
Grant applications for the 2015-16 school year will be accepted until May 19.
In the 2014-15 school year, the government funded more than 2,200 projects that helped identify barriers to parent engagement and found local solutions to help more parents get involved in their children’s education. This includes 28 local projects in Scarborough-Guildwood on topics such as:
Encouraging parents to get involved in their children’s education is part of the government's economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people's talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
“These grants are a great way to help parents here in Scarborough-Guildwood get more involved in their children’s learning and, in turn, help our students reach their full potential and better prepare them for a bright future.”
— Mitzie Hunter, MPP for Scarborough-Guildwood
“Parents play a vital role in Ontario’s publicly funded education system. We know that children whose parents are engaged in education, show higher levels of achievement, and we are committed to providing support for that to happen in every community.”
— Liz Sandals, Minister of Education
