The October 27 2016 Agenda for the Peel DSB Instruction Program/Curriculum Committee includes a report titled We Rise Together: The Peel District School Board Action Plan to Support Black Male Students (item 10.2, page 63).

From the report, page 63:  “The Action Plan has four key goals:

  1. Integrate the experiences of black Canadians into the curriculum
  2. Deliver bias and anti-racism professional development
  3. Engage with the community
  4. Inspire black student leadership and engagement”
