The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario is pleased to share that Board Chair, Todd Lalonde, has been appointed as a member of the Council of the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT).
The 37-member Council governs the College and develops and approves policies that regulate the teaching profession in Ontario. The Council is made up of 23 members of the College elected by their peers and 14 members of the public, appointed by the provincial government. Lalonde will serve for a two-year term.
“Your appointment to the Council recognizes the significant commitment and contribution you have made to local community and professional organizations,” noted Minister of Education Stephen Lecce in a letter to Lalonde acknowledging the appointment, which was made by the Lieutenant Governor in Council.
“This is certainly an exciting opportunity to complement my current role in education governance,” explained Lalonde. “I am extremely pleased and grateful for this appointment, and I am committed to expanding my role to serve in the interests of the education community.”
Lalonde has served as a Trustee with the CDSBEO for 14 years and is currently in his fourth term as Chair of the Board.
