Message from Director of Education Ron Ferguson

The Upper Canada District School Board is committed to providing our students with rich learning environments that are inclusive, respectful, and encouraging so that we can live up to our mission, which is to prepare all students for a successful life. 

Recognizing that our school district is situated on traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee Territory, and our close connections with the Ahkwesahsne Mohawk Board of Education, we are especially dedicated to providing learning opportunities that allow students and families to explore Indigenous cultural experiences, learn about Indigenous history in Canada, and build stronger relationships with Indigenous peoples. Our Truth and Reconciliation Gatherings, which are held annually, are just one example of how this is achieved.

Within our school district, we’ve made hands-on learning a priority, through our numerous Specialist High Skills Major programs and real-world learning opportunities.

However, our commitment to students goes far beyond academics. We encourage all students to be good citizens and emphasis this through our Character Always initiative. We care about the well-being of our students. Staff foster trusted relationships with students and are constantly learning and developing skills to better support those who need the extra emotional support.

I am a UCDSB alumni and this school board is at the core of who I am. I’ve learned from our teachers, I’ve worked side-by-side with our principals and our senior leadership team, and I’ve had great guidance along the wayI will takall that I’ve learned and provide innovative, transparent and effective leadership to ensure our families receive the quality education and support that I received.
