The public will soon learn what an external reviewer found during her examination of governance issues at the Toronto District School Board.

Education Minister Liz Sandals announced in November that a review would be conducted by Margaret Wilson.

The review was prompted by concerns about the governance at the TDSB. It was to include what the ministry described as a review of "current operational issues" at the board, as well as a look at its governance structure.

The TDSB has dealt with a series of ongoing problems that have put it under more intensive scrutiny. These have included various high-profile controversies and tensions among board leaders.

The board recently saw some renewal after voters elected 11 new trustees in October.

Trustee Shaun Chen, who serves as the chair of the board, has said board members are eager to "turn the page" on some of the challenges they have faced in the recent past.

Wilson's report is due to be released at 11:30 a.m. Sandals is due to speak to the media at that time. A news release says the minister will be making an announcement about the board.
