Character Education

Character Wheel

The OCDSB is committed to providing learning and working environments where all individuals feel safe, valued, respected, and welcome. 

The fundamental building blocks to a safe and caring school community are the relationships and partnerships between administrators, staff, parents, students and the community. It is through these relationships and partnerships that all individuals in the school community have the opportunity to practice and model to one another the character attributes that are at the foundation of our board operations.

Our character attributes are the stepping stones to living our community of character.  The purpose of these attributes is to help ensure accountability.

Appreciation

Cooperation

Empathy

Fairness

Integrity
