About Us

One of Ontario's largest public education systems, the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) has schools and learning centres dotted throughout 4,800 beautiful square kilometres in Simcoe County. This south-central Ontario setting bordered by the Holland Marsh in the south, the Trent-Severn Waterway in the east, Blue Mountain in the west and Muskoka in the north is known for its friendly mix of urban and rural communities and superb natural recreational facilities. 

The number one priority for our dedicated and skilled team of teaching, administrative and support staff is to help all students learn, achieve success, reach their full potential and continue along a path of lifelong learning.

Land Acknowledgment

The SCDSB approved the practice of a land acknowledgment for Board meetings and significant Board and school events as well as a less formal land acknowledgment for daily use in all schools.

A land acknowledgment is an act of reconciliation and respect with, and for, the First Nations people of Simcoe County, on whose land we stand. 



The stylized "S" in the Board's logo represents the educational path and emphasizes direction to the future. While formal education takes place within the solid foundation of the school - represented by the square - learning is also an ongoing process to be pursued beyond the walls of our classrooms.

Adopted in April 1988, the SCDSB corporate symbol was developed by designer Chuck Temple from a concept submitted by Diana MacNab, a former student from Orillia Park Street Collegiate.

In 2011, the logo was refreshed to incorporate slight changes to the font and layout while maintaining its traditional integrity. Variations of the new logo incorporate the SCDSB’s tagline “Your Future… Our Priority”, which encapsulates the core student-centred purposes of The Simcoe Path.

SCDSB Visual Brand Standards

With more than 100 schools and being one of the most geographically dispersed school boards in Ontario, it is important that the SCDSB be an easily recognizable organization for everyone in the county. To support this, a Visual Brand Standards document was created to help guide how the SCDSB is represented in print and online. More information about how to use the Visual Brand Standards can be found in the "What Does This Mean For Me?" document.

Scholarship Donations

The Simcoe County District School Board is a registered charity. We welcome and encourage donations to enhance learning opportunities, scholarships and awards to assist our students in continuing their education journeys.   Our registered charity number is 107981318RR0002 and donation receipts can be issued for income tax purposes.  Please contact your school’s principal or SCDSB Business Services for further information.

Scent Awareness Guidelines

The Simcoe County District School Board is committed to a safe, healthy and respectful workplace and learning environment for staff, students, and all other persons who are invited to or who work on Board property.

The Scent Awareness Guideline is intended to: increase awareness within the Board community about the potential impact of fragrance chemicals on the health, wellbeing, productivity and lifestyle of those affected; ask for the voluntary cooperation towards a scent-reduced environment and provide the steps for responding to scent-related issues.
