Annual Director's Report
This annual report (and accompanying supplemental documents) highlight how we are meeting our strategic plan goals, the latest EQAO results, our financial results and some of our notable accomplishments over the past year.
Board Improvement Plan
Every year, we update our Board Plan for Excellence in Faith formation, Learning and Achievement.
Budget and Financial Statements
The past five years of approved budgets and audited financial statements are below. The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the Financial Administration Act, supplemented by Ontario Ministry of Education memorandum 2004:B2 and Ontario Regulation 395/11 of the Financial Administration Act.
We routinely undertake long-term enrolment and capital planning reviews that provide the context for new schools, additions, accommodation reviews, attendance boundary reviews, and related decisions. The Board's Capital Plan is a multi-year planning document, updated yearly, with a focus on a five year planning window that forecasts pupil enrolment and accommodation requirements. The plan guides the Board's provision of appropriate accommodation at system schools to achieve established objectives in a financially responsible manner.
Below are our most recent documents concerning our Conservation and Demand Management Plan as well as our Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emission Report.
Multi-Year Strategic Plan
It is the responsibility of every school board to create a Multi-Year Strategic Plan (MYSP). The purpose of the MYSP is to set out the long-term strategic priorities for the London District Catholic School Board.
2019-23 Multi-Year Strategic Plan: Our board has entered into a phase of growth and moving forward we need to continually respond to the changing needs of our students and the many realities of our global society.

Ventilation in Schools
We continue to make upgrades to improve the ventilation infrastructure in our school buildings. Improvements over the past year include upgrading filters to use the highest-grade possible (MERV 13); adding filter changes throughout the school year; operating ventilation systems two hours or more before and after school occupancy; calibrating HVAC systems for maximum air flow and increased fresh air intake; and much more.
