CESBA helps build a prosperous Ontario through adult and continuing education programs in school boards.
CESBA (the Ontario Association of Adult and Continuing Education School Board Administrators) is a provincial, non-profit professional association that represents, advocates for and supports adult and continuing education (A&CE) program staff working in over 60 school boards across Ontario. Incorporated in 1999 and provincially funded, CESBA works to ensure that adult and continuing education programs offered by school boards are accessible, affordable, and successful in helping learners achieve their education, training and employment goals.
The Ontario Association of Adult & Continuing Education School Board Administrators, 2023
Adult and Continuing Education in Ontario Matters
- Adult and continuing education boards in Ontario graduate thousands of students annually with their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).
- Programs like English/French as a Second Language (ESL/FSL), Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) and Adult Credit provide pathways to post-secondary, employment, and apprenticeships.
- Certificates for school board programs are widely recognized by employers (OSSD, PSW certificate, hairstyling training, culinary arts training, etc.)
- Learning plans are student-led so each learner achieves their individual education and employment goals.
- PLAR (Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition) for Mature students—a formal evaluation process where students earn credits for their prior learning and life experiences to complete their OSSD faster.
- Flexible learning in adult learning settings—in-person, online, hybrid, night or summer school—allow adults who are working or caring for their families to enroll.
- Over 245 publicly-funded school board locations in Ontario offer Adult Credit and other adult education programs. Program information is easily available through schools.
- Adult learners can access literacy, digital literacy, skills upgrading, English as a Second Language, adult credit and more, often under one roof at their local adult high school or learning centre.
- Most programs are tuition free or require modest materials fees.
Message from the CESBA Board Chair and Executive Director
Adult and Continuing Education (A&CE) professionals are the mavericks of the education sector. We seek creative means every day to adapt to the individual needs of our adult learners while aligning them to emerging trends in the labour market. We work in close collaboration within our programs and community partnerships to remove barriers and create a pathway for learners from Literacy and Basic Skills or English as a Second Language to their Ontario Secondary School Diploma, apprenticeships, post-secondary, employment and beyond.
We embrace change because it has always been our constant. It is why we seize every opportunity to prepare learners to find meaningful employment within sectors with labour shortages like health care. We swiftly rose to the challenge of expanded online learning during the pandemic and we continue to adapt to the changing delivery needs of our learners. We are ready to offer an enthusiastic welcome to the increasing influx of newcomers through our language training programs; the first step many take to connect with their new community and build a life in Ontario.
As their unique connecting organization, CESBA champions these educators on the frontlines of social change. The following highlights of our work through the fiscal year from April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023 demonstrate our pursuit of learning, growth and opportunity for our A&CE professional community.
Events that expanded our perspective
- Our first in-person conference after two years online brought nearly 400 educators from 52 school boards and 10 Indigenous educational organizations from all regions of Ontario together. Over 75 presenters explored topics around digital transformation, advancing equity, our changing environment and more.
- Our popular series of four workshops on the Future of Work introduced our members to labour market and industry experts: Dr. Wendy Cukier from Toronto Metropolitan University; Dr. Saul Carliner from Concordia University; and Dan Cardinal from Skills Ontario. We also had a robust panel discussion on leveraging the trends on employment for adult learners.
- With the goal of strengthening our understanding of Indigenous leaders in education, we held a workshop that featured profiles of Indigenous Institutes presented by: Katie Maracle, Six Nations Polytechnic; Brendan Smyth, Seven Generations Secondary School; and Mark Gibeault, Kenjgewin Teg. We also presented a new workshop to guide Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) assessors on how to award high school credit equivalencies for traditional skills like beading, drumming or hunting.
- Actor, musician, educator and motivational speaker, Sean Mauricette, presented a workshop on Dismantling Racial Bias: Empowering Your Team and Engaging the Future. He spoke about racial bias in the workplace, how bias informs how history is taught, and how to create an inclusive classroom. He finished the session with a moving spoken word performance.
Getting our PSW students the opportunities they deserve
- To expand our school board Personal Support Worker (PSW) programs, we strengthened our working relationship with the Ministry of Long-Term Care, as well as our community partnerships with care homes, to establish more “living classrooms”. “Living classrooms” offer PSW students the chance to learn at long-term care homes, which gives them meaningful, hands-on training and provides a quicker path to employment.
- We participated on advisory and working groups with MLTC and with the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) to give a voice to our programs.
- We also advocated for community colleges and professional associations to recognize the rigorous standards of our PSW programs and offer equal opportunities to those who earn their qualifications at public or private colleges. A key example is the Bridging Educational Grant in Nursing (BEGIN) that awards PSW students with tuition grants to pursue nursing studies.
Research and data to tell our stories
- We published three reports on comprehensive research projects to explore topical questions within A&CE in Ontario. The research was conducted by Dr. Sandy Youmans, Queens University, and Dr. Lorraine Godden, Carleton University, who surveyed school board administrators, teachers, and learners across the province.

- How Adult Learners Are Supported Through Adult Education Credit Programs Across the Province explores the resources and supports that are most used and valued in credit programs to help learners succeed. Summary infographic | Full Report
- Online Delivery in Adult Education During COVID-19 asks how our educators and learners fared during the quick shift to online learning and what we can learn about delivering online learning in the future. Summary infographic | Full Report
- We undertook an ambitious project at the beginning of this fiscal year, to audit and implement recommendations on the collection and use of data within our organization and across our school board membership. The goal is to better inform decision-making and advocacy efforts for A&CE programs. CESBA contracted a data-strategy organization, Ajah, that has spent the year conducting the data audit and engaging with our membership. A large and enthusiastic group of our active members and staff established a Data Implementation Planning Strategy (DIPS) advisory group to steer this important work that will continue through the next fiscal year. This project will be an integral part of how CESBA uses data to better inform decision-making as we move forward.
Investing in Literacy
- We presented a broad-ranging series of six workshops to support administrators and practitioners working in school board Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) programs. The series explored diverse topics, such as supporting newcomers, learners with developmental disabilities and learners with mental health challenges, along with business planning skills for LBS program leads.
- We responded to the exciting MLITSD Skills for Success initiative, which challenged organizations to create curriculum to support job readiness. We created 27 resources on subjects such as digital skills enhancement, workplace literacy, serving underrepresented groups, and apprenticeships.
This report summarizes our work from April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023, but we wish to acknowledge our project coordinator and conference lead, Suzanne Schwenger, who retired shortly afterwards in August 2023. She is profiled below. We recently welcomed Erinn Graham-Barter to the role.
We both wish to thank the educators, administrators and staff of our A&CE community in Ontario for your collaboration, innovation and transformational work. Your work truly makes a difference in the lives of thousands of Ontarians. We are honoured to serve you.

CESBA Executive Director
A Year in Review
Advocating for Adult & Continuing Education
CESBA promotes the vital need for ongoing government investment in publicly-funded school board adult and continuing education to create meaningful social and economic change. We ensure our provincial and federal partners are informed on the transformational work that our educators do and assist them to communicate updates to our membership.
We met frequently with decision makers in two key learning ministries, the Ministry of Education (EDU), which supports our adult credit programs and Mature PLAR (Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition) process, as well as our PSW training programs, and the Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development (MLITSD) with divisions that support Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) and English as a Second Language (ESL) and French as a Second Language (FSL). We also engaged with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) at the federal level, which funds the Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) program. We invited government representatives to address our members at our regional meetings.
CESBA met regularly with EDU, as well as the Ministries of Health (MOH), Long-Term Care (MLTC), and Colleges and Universities (MCU), to advocate for our school board Personal Support Worker (PSW) programs. They worked closely with our PSW Lead, Anita Plunkett, on our new quality assurance program for school board PSW programs. We ran a second marketing campaign with the support of EDU to attract prospective students to our PSW website, www.ontarioschoolboardpsw.ca. Anita also reached out to other key stakeholders to advocate for equal opportunities for school board PSW graduates. She met with employers who historically have only hired college program graduates to provide information on our PSW programs and their graduates. She also met with Mohawk College in Hamilton about their BEGIN nursing bridging program that is currently only open to PSW graduates from a college program, to create a path for our PSW graduates to participate and met with Research on Aging Institute on “living classrooms”, onsite education for PSW students at long-term care homes.
PLAR is a process that awards students high school credits for their work, education and life experience. CESBA, through our PLAR Lead, Andrea Murphy, and EDU continued to collaborate closely on communicating and training for Policy/Program Memorandum 132 that was revised in February 2022 and consult on revisions to be implemented in Fall 2023.
It was a challenging year for many of the school board ESL/FSL programs that received reduced funding or were cancelled, while others waited months for communications on funding extensions. We held numerous sector meetings to support our members and communicated their concerns to the MLITSD, Global Talent Settlement Services Division, to advocate for their exemplary language learning programs.
We will continue to advocate for a public policy environment where all A&CE learners in Ontario can access programs that will improve their lives.
Reaching Out to Our Members
We provided our mailing list of 2,500 (+13% over last year) adult and continuing education professionals, community partners and supporters with important sector news, resources, activities and events through our monthly enewsletter, a weekly bulletin from our Executive Director, and numerous sector and event eblasts.
Our bilingual website is a hub for the A&CE community to access an ever-expanding number of entries in the resource library with over 400 resources, and learn about our professional development workshops, regional meetings and other events.
The use of the website increased over the previous year, with 21,559 users (+35%), 32,500 (+34%) visits, and 72,878 pageviews (+27%). Our social media channels informed more than 1,800 followers of CESBA updates, upcoming events, and relevant news.
We relaunched our PSW marketing campaign updating the materials from spring 2021. The goal of the campaign was to support our PSW programs by targeting prospective students. The campaign included an article in YourCareerGuide.ca that featured Anita Plunkett, our PSW lead, and a recent PSW graduate, digital ads, a video, and social media posts through Media Planet channels. Our website at ontarioschoolboardpsw.ca, also known as GetMyPSW.ca features an overview of the PSW program, an interactive map of Ontario with school board PSW program locations, FAQs and four student success stories. The campaign also highlighted the Province’s tuition fee coverage for new PSW students.
GetMyHighSchoolDiploma.ca, a website that promotes adult credit programs across Ontario, and also features an interactive map is regularly updated and continues to receive visits. Plans were made for a review and revamp of this website for next fiscal.

CESBA hosted nine well-attended regional meetings throughout the school year for the North, East, Central and West regions to connect with their colleagues, hear from government representatives and meet in small, sector-specific groups (Credit/PLAR/
Guidance, ESL/FSL/LINC, LBS, IL, PSW, Francophone). All the regional meetings were held on Zoom with a plan to transition to a new model for a return to one in-person meeting for each region, beginning in spring 2023.
Our goals for this year’s regional meetings included sector updates, challenges, and opportunities, and a focus on data collection and use. We asked participants to share their board practices regarding data collection and use, including what they feel is done well, what is missing and what their data priorities are going forward. Information from these meetings helped to identify topics and interested members for the DIPS (Data Implementation Planning Strategy) meetings.
Meetings to connect and support
CESBA was responsive throughout the year as opportunities and challenges arose, by quickly scheduling informal meetings online to connect administrators to their provincial peers.
We facilitated opportunities for principals and vice-principals to connect to share knowledge regarding the transition to new Student Management Systems (SMS). We supported program staff on the SMS used in school boards: Aspen, PowerSchool, and Edsembli.
Because we began to work fully remotely as of February 2023, we have the staff flexibility and budget to reallocate for more onsite school board visits. Executive Director Paul Cox, and Program Manager, Charlotte Parliament, visited four school boards to learn more about their program needs and offer customized support. Numerous additional site visits were made by our PSW Lead Anita Plunkett and our PLAR Lead Andrea Murphy. Paul also met virtually with senior administration teams at several school boards this past year to share knowledge and support capacity-building.
Farewell to Conference Lead,
Suzanne Schwenger, our project coordinator and conference lead, left our staff team in summer 2023, shortly after this fiscal period, after six years at CESBA. As the conference lead, Suzanne curated the conference content with the help of the conference committee. At the regional meetings, she was our gentle host to keep things moving while ensuring everyone was heard. Behind the scenes, she liaised weeks in advance with regional members, speakers and government reps.
As the Francophone Committee facilitator, Suzanne worked to expand our French content, events and personal connections. She served on the Committee to Support Adult Indigenous Learners, the Data Implementation Planning Strategy (DIPS) group, and a special advisory committee on the North Region. She also coordinated or partnered on numerous learning sessions, such as the Future of Work series and the Equity Series.
Suzanne’s insight on committees, proposals, communications and current events have been invaluable to the team. Her warmth and wisdom has touched everyone in our CESBA community, and we are grateful for her time with us.
Reconnect & Renew
November 23-25, 2022
CESBA’s 2022 Conference returned triumphantly to an in-person event for the first time since 2019. Nearly 400 educators from 52 school boards and 10 Indigenous educational organizations from all regions of Ontario attended Reconnect & Renew in Toronto, November 23-25. The sold-out conference included a popular welcome back reception for all registrants and a 5 à 7 networking reception for Francophone educators.
Alison Sadowski, principal at the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board, and Gary Wimmer, vice-principal at Thames Valley District School Board, were excellent co-hosts who shared their humour and expertise to engage and guide participants through the conference agenda. Elder Danny Beaton opened the conference with Indigenous words of welcome and traditional flute music. Indigenous keynote speaker, Riley Yesno set the context for one of the conference themes, a changing world, in her keynote presentation on Education Beyond Reconciliation.
Over seventy-five presenters delivered 31 workshops across both days. Conference Day focused on four content streams: digital transformation, mental health and empathy, equity, inclusion and belonging, and our changing environment. Sector Day focused on issues related to Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS), PLAR/Guidance/Credit, ESL/FSL/LINC, International and Indigenous Languages, and Personal Support Worker programs.
Plenary events included a government panel with representation from the Ministry of Education; Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development; and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. Former CESBA Board Chair, Jeff Moore received the fourth annual CESBA Lifetime Achievement Award, with many moving tributes from colleagues. The talented students from Centre d’Excellence Artistique de l’Ontario, Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario, travelled from Ottawa to entertain participants with music and dance.
Conference sponsorship more than doubled over the previous year, with revenue from sponsors and exhibitors totalling nearly $30,000. Thanks to all sponsors and partners, including our Signature Sponsor, Apprenticesearch.com, as well as volunteers, staff and our partners at BPL Events.
“It was great to hear from colleagues around the province about how they operateConference attendee
