NO EARLY DISMISSAL PRIOR TO CHRISTMAS VACATION There will be no early dismissal of students on the last day of school prior to the Christmas break. The Toronto Catholic District School Board, at the direction of the Ministry of Education, has completely harmonized school bus transportation services with the Toronto District School Board. This has resulted in significant savings for the TCDSB, but has taken away much of the flexibility that we previously enjoyed. The practice of early dismissal on the last day of school before Christmas Holidays is a practice of the TCDSB, which is not implemented by the TDSB. The TDSB will not be adopting this practice. Therefore, there will be no early dismissal on the Friday before Christmas. Schools are reminded that because the school year ends on two different days in June, the practice of early dismissal in June will not be affected.

Starting Monday, October 25, 2004, The Human Resources Department Launches

“iCOD” to all TCDSB Employees, under Ontario Regulation 521/01 Starting Monday, October 25, 2004, “iCOD”, the Board’s Criminal Offence Declaration web site will be available for all employees to complete and submit their required offence declaration. Ontario Regulation 521/01 required all school boards to collect a criminal history of all existing and new employees by July 31, 2003. In addition to this requirement, this legislation further required school boards to collect offence declarations from all employees by September 1 annually, commencing 2004. All employees are required to make an annual offence declaration. Failure to do so may result in suspension or termination of employment. In order to initiate this undertaking and on-going annual process, the Board has licensed an Internet accessible, web encrypted application called iCOD that will enable employees to submit their offence declarations in a highly secure, private and confidential manner. They may do so in the privacy of their homes, at their place of work or at a public library through any web browser that supports 128-bit encryption. The iCOD web site will be available from Monday, October 25, 2004 through to November 14, 2004. Employees may access iCOD through the following links: • The iCOD web site at : https://icod.tcdsb.org • Through the Board’s Internet web site home page at: http://www.tcdsb.org under “What’s new” or the “Staff” page at: http://www.tcdsb.org/staff • Through the Board’s Intranet site at: http://intranet.tcdsb.org Should you experience technical difficulties when attempting to access the iCOD web site, you may contact: ICT Help Desk at 416 222-8282 ext. HELP (4357) Should you need further assistance once you are on the iCOD web site, you may contact Human Resources at: 416 222-8282, ext. 2379 or email your concerns or questions to [email protected] The above phone lines will be available during working hours, Monday through Friday and further extended Monday to Thursday evenings from 4:30pm to 7:30 pm during the period of Monday, October 25, 2004 through to Thursday, November 11, 2004. As well, for any questions that you may have concerning iCOD and this declaration process: • You may utilize the FAQ button for “most frequently asked questions” or the HELP button or the User Guide directly located on the iCOD web site before you begin the registration processs. Tips to Note Before Logging On To iCOD - You will need to know the following before you begin the Registration Process in the iCOD application: • Your first name that is displayed on your pay statement • Your last name that is displayed on your pay statement • Your SAP Employee #. This is located on the top left corner of your pay statement. You will have to enter all digits of your employee # into the iCOD application • You will need to know the first six digits of your social insurance number • For this first offence declaration, all staff need to register as a “new user” in the iCOD application • Once you are in the “Registration for New User” screen, you will be asked to enter a password in a field called “User Password”. This password does not have to be a TCDSB password that you may currently be using for other TCDSB applications. iCOD is a totally separate system, independent from any other TCDSB application. Create your own password for iCOD and privately document this number in your personal belongings. • An iCOD userid will be provided to you once you have registered. Remember this userid; store it with your iCOD password that you created. You will need this next year! • However, don’t fret if you forget, you can just re-register next year when it’s time to make your next declaration. • Take your time and read through each screen in iCOD, don’t be nervous! Good Luck. Should anyone be uncertain if they have committed a “criminal” offence, please contact your personal legal counsel for clarification. The Human Resources Department wishes to thank all employees for their cooperation and patience during this new process, initiated under Ontario Regulation 521/01.

AUDITIONS FOR THIS YEAR’S COMEDY!!!

Over the River and Through the Woods by Joe Di Pietro

Wednesday, November 17 Thursday, November 18 St. Margaret Catholic School For an audition time, call 416 222-8282 xARTS (2787) "A hilarious family comedy that is even funnier than his long-running musical revue I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change. —BackStage. THE STORY: Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn't mean his family isn't still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he's been offered a dream job. The job he's been waiting for—marketing executive—would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. He tells them. The news doesn't sit so well. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. How could he betray his family's love to move to Seattle, for a job, wonder his grandparents? Well, Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely—and single—Caitlin O'Hare as bait…we won't give the ending away here. NOTE: Those eligible for grandparent roles need not actually be seniors!!!

This information is for teachers, who are considering Catholic leadership as a career and vocation.

The Catholic Principals’ Council of Ontario invites applications for the winter session of

The Principal’s Qualification Program Part 1 & Part 2 Winter 2005; beginning February 5th & 6th , 2005 Registration Deadline: Friday, January 14th, 2005 “An excellent course, especially the infusing of Catholicity throughout the course - I learned a lot that can help me now as a teacher and later in my career as an administrator. The resources are incredible and the instructor and teachers in Part 1 were amazing to learn from and work with. I would like to take Part 2 with CPCO.” “I continually verbalize to my colleagues that the Principal's Qualification Courses 1 and 2 are the most outstanding courses that I have taken. I have completed several AQ courses in 8 years of teaching not including the Principal's courses. None of them touch these 2 courses. They are worthwhile even if you do not have aspirations of becoming an administrator. They provide excellent conflict resolution skills and many other interesting components useful to educators of all kinds. These 2 courses were so diversified that they addressed all issues. Absolutely superb!”

• • •

The Catholic Principals’ Council of Ontario invites interested teachers to register for the Winter 2005 Principal’s Qualification Program. The course begins the weekend of February 5th and 6th. It runs for 6 weekends and finishes on Sunday, April 30th. The CPCO program is the only Catholic Principal’s Qualification Program in the province of Ontario. The Education Commission of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Ontario has endorsed this program for educators interested in becoming administrators in Ontario Catholic schools. Many Catholic school boards consider the CPCO PQP course to be the preferred qualification course for Catholic teachers in preparation for the role of Catholic viceprincipal and principal.



Potential Locations for Part 1 and II (all TBA): Brantford, Durham, Hamilton, London. Mississauga, Napanee, Ottawa, Peterborough, Simcoe Muskoka, Sudbury, Toronto, Thunder Bay, York, Waterloo
