Public Education Symposium

Public Education Symposium (PES) 2022

The Public Education Symposium (PES) is the premier professional development event for Ontario School Boards. On Friday, January 28, 2022, PES will take place via Zoom from 8:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Our focus this year is the future of public education in the face of COVID-19. School boards have felt the profound impact of the pandemic and together we’ll look forward and learn how to best support Ontario’s students in our “new normal”.
