The Angel Foundation for Learning Literacy Award for Exceptional Students

History 

This award honours the memory of Barbara & Marek Brodzki. Barbara, a devoted educator of exceptional children, was an Assessment and Programming teacher with TCDSB. She was a member of the Balanced Literacy Team and one of the initiators of the Fifth Block Program. Barbara was passionate in her love of exceptional children and providing them with quality literature. Marek was also a strong supporter of literacy. The Angel Foundation for Learning is continuing to fund this literacy award for exceptional students.

Description of Award

The AFL Literacy Award for Exceptional Students is administered through The Angel Foundation for Learning. It will be awarded to an elementary school to enhance and expand literacy materials for exceptional children in the school. One award of $500 will be given out annually.
Criteria This award will be granted to an elementary school to purchase literacy materials for exceptional children based on the following criteria:
 the school’s objectives for the use of the funds;
 a list of the materials that will be purchased; and
 a rationale of how these specific materials will benefit the literacy needs of exceptional children in the school. The literacy materials must be directly available and accessible to the exceptional students (books, media etc).

Selection Process

The selection will be approved by the Board of Directors of The Angel Foundation for Learning, upon the recommendation of the review committee. This committee will be composed of retired members of the TCDSB community. The selected school will be notified shortly after the application deadline.
