Netflix series 13 Reasons Why – information for parents/guardianshttp://har.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/board-news/71Netflix series 13 Reasons Why – information for parents/guardians<div>​​Recently there has been significant media coverage of the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. The show is a fictional account of one teen’s suicide and the factors leading to it.  <br><br>The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) has advised staff that they are not to use the series as a teaching tool. This decision is based upon the advice of mental health professionals from across the province, who have stated that the material is graphic and potentially triggering for vulnerable young people. While the themes in this series may not pose a risk or potential harm to most students, for those struggling with mental health issues and/or suicide ideation, this series includes graphic content, glamourizes suicidal behaviours and portrays helpers (school guidance counsellors) in a negative way.  <br><br>We recognize that your children may watch the series on their own. If they do, we encourage you to talk with them about their thoughts and feelings. The SCDSB has supports in place for students and staff, and there are many community resources you can access as well. More information and contact details are available on the <a href="http://www.scdsb.on.ca/Programs/Safe-and-Healthy-Schools/Pages/Mental-Health.aspx">SCDSB website​</a>.  <br><br>The National Association of School Psychologists has also developed <a href="http://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources/school-safety-and-crisis/preventing-youth-suicide/13-reasons-why-netflix-series-considerations-for-educators">information regarding the series​</a>. You may also find this helpful in discussions with your children about suicide and mental health.   <br><br>If you have questions or concerns please contact your principal.</div><div><br></div>

French Program Reviewhttp://har.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/17French Program Review<p>​​Following are the contents of a letter being distributed to all families at Harriett Todd and Regent Park public schools regarding an upcoming French Program Review.​<br><br></p><p>The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) introduced the French Immersion (FI) program, beginning with Grade 1, in September 2013. The FI program is one component of the SCDSB's French as a Second Language (FSL) program. At that time, the board identified which schools would offer the program to ensure fair access to students from across Simcoe County. In order to maintain this fair access, the program must be reviewed on a regular basis to help balance enrolment and to minimize impacts on home school student populations.</p><p>A Program Review (PR) has been approved by the SCDSB Board of Trustees for our school. A proposed option is splitting the FSL program, with some grades attending Regent Park Public School and the others attending Harriett Todd Public School. All students in the English program would continue to attend their home school.</p><p>This review is being conducted to ensure balanced enrolment at our schools. The results of the review would take effect in September 2017.</p><p><strong>We are hosting an information session to address parent questions and get feedback on the proposed changes.</strong></p><p><strong>Date: October 13, 2016</strong><br><strong>Time: 7 p.m.</strong><br><strong>Location: Harriett Todd Public School</strong></p><p>Further information is included in the SCDSB's 2015-16 Capital Plan. You can view it online at <a href="http://www.scdsb.on.ca/">www.scdsb.on.ca</a>  under 'Board' and 'Capital Planning'. Click on the Capital Plan 2015-16 link.</p><p>I invite you to contact me at 705-734-6363 x11208 with any questions or comments you have.</p><p>Sincerely,</p><p>Douglas Paul<br>Superintendent of Education</p>
