The Third Path

Many of you are familiar with the relationship-based approach to student well-being and achievement, The Third Path. The program has been embraced by the OCDSB. As a step to assist teachers in learning the various aspects of the program, live-streamed and recorded sessions by Dr. Tranter are available free of charge until Dec. 31, 2022. These sessions have been available since October 2021 although the union office was just recently informed.

Below is the information from the OCDSB.
