Family and community engagement

Education is a partnership among parents, students, teachers, principals, school boards, government and the community. Involving parents/guardians in their child’s education is essential to student achievement and well-being.

Below are some of the ways parents/guardians can get involved with their child’s school.

  • School councils provide a forum through which parents/guardians and other members of school communities can contribute to improving student achievement and school performance. Each school has a school council consisting of the principal, parents/guardians, school staff and community members.
  • The Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) is system-level advisory body to Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board. The PIC supports, encourages and enhances meaningful parent engagement in schools.
  • Parents Reaching Out Grants can be applied for by school councils to support school-based projects that help parents/guardians become more engaged in schools.
  • The Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) is an advisory body of representatives from provincial parent associations to share ideas, compare strategies and address common concerns related to students with special education needs.
  • The Mental Health Literacy Strategy (Pdf) provides direction about HPEDSB engaging with the community in the area of school mental health.
  • Partnerships with various community agencies contribute to the well-being of every student, and to being part of caring and vibrant communities, such as Working Together for Kids’ Mental Health Demonstration Project, Lions Club Hearing and Vision Screening, Terry Fox Walk/Run and Special Olympics, to name just a few.

Community use of schools

  • Community use of schools

    Schools are hubs for community activities. They are places where people can come together to meet, play and learn.

    Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board (HPEDSB) welcomes community use of schools and facilities and facility partnerships in support of healthy, active lifestyles and sustainable, vibrant communities.

    In partnership with the Ministry of Education, HPEDSB has affordable and accessible space for community organizations to use outside school hours—auditoriums, classrooms, gymnasiums, lecture theatres and sports fields. Many schools across the district are available for use by not-for-profit and for-profit groups, such as community, educational, cultural, recreational, youth, sports and educational partners. Space may also be rented by private instructors for activities such as music and karate lessons.

    Space is available for community use after school hours on weekdays until 10:00 p.m and on weekends, depending on the availability of custodial staff. School day activities, extra-curricular activities and parent involvement activities organized or sponsored by the school or school board have priority use of school space.

Accessibility

Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board is committed to the continual improvement of accessibility to school board facilities, policies, programs, practices and services for students, staff, parents, guardians, volunteers and members of the community with disabilities.

The Multi-Year Annual Accessibility Plan (Pdf), describes the actions taken by HPEDSB in the past and actions to be taken during the five-year period from September 2013 to August 2018. The plan will identify, remove and prevent barriers for people with disabilities who work, learn and participate in the school board community and environment including students, staff, parents and guardians, volunteers and visitors to the Board at its schools.

The multi-year plan is developed in accordance with the Integration Accessibility Standards Regulation 191/11 (IASR) under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) and the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001 (ODA). HPEDSB will strive to provide an environment in all of its facilities that fosters independence, dignity and respect for persons with disabilities.

The AODA provides an enhanced emphasis on required actions to meet the needs of persons with disabilities. The AODA includes regulations with respect to:

  • Customer Services
  • Transportation
  • Information and Communications
  • Employment
  • The Building Environment

Please refer to Board Administrative Procedure 133: Accessibility Standards – General Outline (Pdf), which addresses procedures related to the AODA and the Board’s commitment to take into account a person’s disability for accessibility requirements.

Our commitment to accessibility is ongoing

  • The Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC) meets annually to review the plan.
  • We consult with people with disabilities to develop and review of the plan.
  • We ensure school board policies and procedures are consistent with the principles of accessibility.
  • We improve access to facilities, policies, programs, practices and services for students, staff, parents, guardians, volunteers and members of the community

In maintaining the plan, the Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC) invites advice from persons with disabilities by email at directors.office@hpedsb.on.ca. In selection of members of the committee, organizations are asked to appoint representatives with disabilities where possible.

HPEDSB actions to date

  • Reduced height of water fountains
  • Installed audio enhancement equipment
  • Improved access to automatic door opener buttons
  • Ensured chair lifts are in good repair

Student records and transcripts requests

Accessing student records

An Ontario Student Record (OSR) (Pdf) is established for each student who enrolls into a school operated by Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board.

Each student over age 18, or the parent/guardian of a student who is under age 18, may request a meeting to review the contents of the Ontario Student Record (OSR). A request for the correction or removal of information in the OSR from the adult student or parent/guardian of a student under age 18 must be made in writing to the principal.

Description of the Ontario Student Transcript

The Ontario Student Transcript (OST) is an official record that documents a student’s academic progress. It includes the mark received for each course taken, and indicates whether the student completed the 40-hour community service requirement and passed the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test. A transcript is a component of the OSR and is created and managed in accordance with the Ministry of Education’s OST Manual. Since September 1, 1999, an OST has been established for each student enrolled in an Ontario secondary school course, whether or not the course is being taken for credit.

All graduates receive one diploma and an official transcript at time of graduation. Diplomas and transcripts not distributed at commencement will be held at the secondary school for pick up.

At times, an individual may need to request education verification from their current or former school for a variety of reasons.

How to obtain an Ontario Student Transcript if you are no longer in secondary school

  1. If you are a former HPEDSB student and are applying to a post-secondary institution (college or university), you may be able to request your transcript electronically as part of your online application. Find out more at Ontario College Application Service (OCAS).

A small fee will be charged for this service; the school will confirm the amount. Payment can be made by cash, money order, or certified cheque. Credit cards and Interac payments are not accepted.
    • PLEASE NOTE:
      • Records for BCI (Belleville Collegiate and Vocational Institute) are handled through Quinte Adult Education, Belleville location.
      • Moira Secondary School was renamed Eastside Secondary School in September 2018.
      • Quinte Secondary School closed in June 2018. Transcript and student record requests for former Quinte students are handled through Centennial Secondary School.
  • EXCEPTIONS DURING THE SUMMER: Schools are closed during July and August. As a result, transcript requests that cannot be fulfilled through the process outlined in point 1. above will be held until school office staff return to work during the last week of August.

2. If you require a transcript for employment purposes, please contact the last secondary school you attended. You will need to provide your full name (if you have changed names, please specify your birth name) and your date of birth.

If you have any questions, please contact the school principal or the freedom of information officer at 613.966.1170 or 1.800.267.4340, extension 62354, or directors.office@hpedsb.on.ca
