The Durham District School Board (DDSB) is a public school board in Ontario, Canada. The DDSB serves most of the Regional Municipality of Durham, except for schools within the Municipality of Clarington, which belongs to the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board. The Durham District School Board Education Centre (head office) is in Whitby.

The school board has five families of schools (Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa, and Brock/Uxbridge/Scugog), each of which has two trustees except Oshawa, which has three. In total the school board has approximately 6000 staff who serve approximately 47,000 elementary and 22,000 secondary school students.

A unique program to the Durham District School Board that is running in a number of its secondary schools is called the Culture of Peace Committee, which works on a wide variety of social and humanitarian issues within the schools and in the community.
