Accommodation Review

​Pupil Accommodation Review​

An accommodation review (AR) anticipates the consolidation of schools and/or the closing of a school(s).

Once a board has determined that an AR is to be undertaken, an Accommodation Review Committee (ARC), consisting of community members, educators, parent and board administrative representatives, is appointed by the Board. A School Board Trustee may but is not required to be included on an ARC. The ARC's responsibility is to complete the AR and the options available to the ARC are:

  • School consolidation and/or closure;

  • Boundary changes;

  • New facilities or upgrades;

  • Partnerships and joint use opportunities;

  • No change.

The ARC will consult extensively with the community and make recommendations to the Board. The Board will make the final decision.  The AR process, including the role of the ARC, is prescribed by the Ontario Ministry of Education in its accommodation review guideline.

At its January 15, 2013 Regular Meeting, Trustees approved an accommodation review (AR) to review the future of Our Lady of the Way School. The Board will be appointing community and other members to an Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) in the next few weeks and the ARC will begin meeting as early as mid-February 2013. Further information on AR is available at http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/policyfunding/reviewguide.html​ and in the Board Administrative Procedure, D-10, Pupil Accommodation Review, which is available on the Board's website under Administrative Procedures or at the link below.
