The TDSB Research Centre has released a 2016 report (see below) .

Sinay, E., Presley, A., Douglin, M., & De Jesus, S. (2016). Fostering a “culture of trust” within and outside a school system. (Research Report No. 15/16-11). Toronto, Ontario, Canada: Toronto District School Board.

From page 1: (the purpose) 

The purpose of this study is to examine the best practices, models, and innovations and recommend practical solutions for building and repairing a “Culture of Trust” within and outside a school system.

From page 45: (concluding remarks)  

“Relationships are the building blocks for trusting interactions among staff and leaders within a school system. If school systems are to become effective agents in supporting student learning, educational leaders need to be aware of the importance of trust. They also need to create structures and processes that promote interaction, dialogue and collaboration, and engage staff and constituents at all levels of the organization in decision-making. By attending to the dynamics of social relationships and fostering a climate of trust, educational leaders can better support school and school system effectiveness and improvement. The efforts of educational leaders to build trust across a school district can lead to positive results throughout the organization as well as improved public trust in public education as a whole”

This is an interesting read, check it out!
