Hello! We are glad you’re here.

Reimagine Forward was and is an open invitation to the HDSB community and beyond. The submission window has now closed. During this engagement, participants shared ideas and stories to develop big picture, innovative opportunities about how the publicly funded school system in Ontario can evolve. Stay a while and check out the contributions that were made.

Reimagine Forward is about planting the seeds for positive, inspiring community building and change.


Here’s the question:

“What are the big moves needed to reimagine public education?”

This is the singular focus of Reimagine Forward. Think big. Think positive. Be innovative. The secret sauce is here among us.


Reimagine Forward is a grassroots project initiated and led by the HDSB Trustees. Submitted ideas will be reviewed by Trustees to influence local policy making and will be shared with participants, the Minister of Education and other Ontario school boards and education organizations in June.

When Reimagine was launched, we promised to:

  • read all of your ideas and stories and let them influence local policy making.

  • package up all of the ideas and stories and share them with you, the Board of Trustees, the Director and Senior Staff, the Minister of Education, Boards from across the province and education organizations. You can check out the letter that was sent, and share the findings too.

Participation Closed May 23. Thank you to one and all!


Reimagine Forward Reports

Various themes emerged from the feedback. On behalf of the Reimagine Subcommittee, trustees provided a detailed report on the background, process, participants and contributions on May 27, 2022. On Nov. 4, 2022, the HDSB provided a report on operational opportunities to highlight a few of the initiatives and plans that are occurring related to some of the themes identified in the Reimagine Forward consultation and resulting board report.


Positive change starts with thinking about and reimagining public education. Let's work together to share stories and ideas. Stay for a while to check out all of the contributions.

Let’s Reimagine Forward: Together.
