The Durham Catholic District School Board (DCDSB) is a publicly funded Catholic school board located in Durham Region, east of Toronto, Ontario. There are 44 elementary schools, and 7 secondary schools. Also within the Board are one Adult Education Centre in Ajax, and one Continuing Education Centre in Oshawa. The Board has engaged in a focused effort to improve student learning through ongoing staff development in the area of instructional leadership.
