Toronto’s public board is expected to spend $4 million this fall to implement the first phase of its plan to improve safety and promote a “culture of respect” in its schools.

 


The plan — which calls for increased police presence in schools, better ways to deal with student-on-student sexual assault as well as more, and higher-tech, security cameras — is the Toronto District School Board’s response to the report of a safety panel it commissioned after the shooting death of Jordan Manners a year ago at C.W. Jefferys.
