History

Education in the former Halton County was previously governed by a framework of boards for various high school districts and public school districts associated with them. In 1967, as a result of initiatives undertaken by then Minister of Education Bill Davis, work was begun to amalgamate all boards on a county-wide level throughout the Province, and such a move was recommended to the Halton County Council that year for its approval. The move was opposed by the southern boards of education in Burlington and Oakville, but that was overruled upon passage of mandatory legislation by the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in 1968.

The Board was constituted as the Halton County Board of Education, which was established on January 1, 1969. When the County was replaced by the Regional Municipality of Halton, the Board became the Halton Board of Education.

As part of the province-wide restructuring of Ontario's school boards as a consequence of the passage of the Fewer School Boards Act, 1997, the English-language Public District School Board No. 20 was created to take over the Region's schools. It was merged with the former Board at the beginning of 1998, and was renamed as the "Halton District School Board" in 1999.
