Iroquois – The Upper Canada District School Board extended its congratulations to the Municipality of South Dundas for their recent award from the Economic Development Council of Ontario (EDCO) in the Public-Private Partnership Award (Population 10,000-50,000) category.
“This award stresses the importance of public-private partnerships throughout Ontario.
We are absolutely thrilled that the Municipality of South Dundas was able to showcase this important partnership between South Dundas, Ross Video, Code Heroes, and the Upper Canada District School Board,” said Chair Jeff McMillan. “When we were approached with this renewed and enhanced partnership opportunity to provide additional support to our schools in the Iroquois and Morrisburg areas that built upon our existing technology programs and resources. We were excited to take part for the benefit of UCDSB students.”
During the announcement of this partnership in September 2017, David Ross of Ross Video and South Dundas Mayor Evonne Delegarde stressed the importance of
students’ participation in these important programs. They expressed pride that the donations and partnerships would be an additional asset to an already strong Code Heroes program in schools located within Iroquois and Morrisburg.
These enhancements further the Upper Canada District School Board’s innovative technology upgrades throughout the district including the Bring Your Own Device
Program, staff and student WiFi capabilities, and technology programs throughout the Board.
