The 4 workshops will be offered twice. Participants will be able to attend two sessions of their choice

Learn tips to help you positively advocate for your child with special needs during education setting meetings. There will be an opportunity for parents to make suggestions as to how OCSB school staff can help support their concerns.
Mental Health Supports at the OCSB
Who can you approach for help when your child is experiencing mental health issues? Come and learn about the mental health resources available at the board and in the community to support students with mental health challenges.
On My Way - Transitions
Effective transitions planning allows for students to be successful as they move through their day, activities or settings. Come and learn how we support successful transitions at all different points for students - prior to the start of school, throughout a student's daily schedule, from grade to grade, and when moving from one school to another.

Re: School Active Transportation Policy Consultation
OSTA is seeking your assistance in distributing this survey link for public consultation on its
proposed School Active Transportation Policy. This policy is scheduled to be presented at
OSTA’s next public governance meeting on April 25, 2016. Delegations may also be heard
at this time.
School active transporation survey
OSTA’s School Active Transportation Program has been in development for the past two
years. With our school board partners, City partners and community partners, we have
been able to support the 50,000+ students who are not eligible for transportation by
motorized vehicle. OSTA’s program includes:
• School Active Transportation Charter, signed by OCDSB, OCSB and OSTA Leaders
• Review of walking hazards at over 180 schools
• Preferred walk route to school maps for all elementary schools
• School Travel Planning facilitation with Green Communities Canada
• Walking School Bus routes at 8 schools
• School site traffic safety reviews
• Participation in the Ottawa School Active Transportation Network
The SAT policy would formalize OSTA’s commitment to continuing to provide services for
students who walk, bike and roll, to school every day.
