Expert panel to advise TDSB on how to fix its governance structure

Education Minister Liz Sandals has put together a panel that will be advising the Toronto District School Board on how to improve its governance structure.

"This expert panel will undertake a consultation with the TDSB community and make recommendations on possible changes to support a more effective governance structure for the board," Sandals told reporters at Queen's Park on Monday.

The seven-member panel will be chaired by Barbara Hall, a former Toronto mayor. It is due to report back to Sandals by the summer.
