At the Regular Meeting of the Board on Nov. 22, 2016, Peel District School Board trustees approved a pupil accommodation review for Alloa, Alton, Belfountain, Caledon Central, and Credit View public schools.
Due to low utilization and enrolment rates, the Board of Trustees have decided to proceed with a modified PAR process. A modified PAR will take approximately four months to complete.
The Initial Staff Report
presented to the Board of Trustees on Dec. 12, 2016, recommends
closing Credit View Public School and relocating students to available space at Belfountain and Caledon Central Public Schools, effective September 2018 (or earlier, if staffing timelines permit). Redirection of students to Alloa P.S. and a boundary change between Alton and Belfountain Public Schools are also being recommended to better geographically align the boundaries between the schools. See attached maps to view recommended boundary changes.
It's important to note that these recommendations are just that—no firm decisions have been made.
The proposed schedule of PAR activities is as follows:
|December 12, 2016||Initial Staff Report to Board recommending a Modified PAR|
|February 6, 2017||Public Meeting to present Initial Staff Report|
(location and time TBD)
|February 28, 2017||Final Staff Report to Board for Receipt|
|March 22, 2017||Public Delegations to Regular Meeting of the Board|
|April 12, 2017||Final Staff Report to Board for Approval|
