Long-Term Pupil Accommodation Planning
The Ontario Ministry of Education expects school boards “to have capital plans that address the future needs of their students.  Areas of enrolment growth and decline should be presented. Plans should include enrolment projections, school capacity, renewal needs, potential consolidations and the construction of new schools or additions, including significant renovations.

Through this planning process, boards forecast where new schools or additions may be needed; which schools will remain well-utilized; which open and operating schools may have unused space; and which schools may be candidates for consolidation or closure.
 
School boards are expected to share this planning information with community partners”. (Community Planning and Partnership Guideline pg. 3-4)

The Accommodation Planning section of the Limestone District School Board’s (LDSB) website will provide the public with access to information relevant to long term pupil accommodation planning.

Long-Term Accommodation Plan (LTAP)
The Limestone District School Board engaged the consulting firm of Ameresco Asset Sustainability Group Inc. to prepare a LTAP for the Board. On May 24, 2016 the Trustees received, for information purposes, the Long-Term Accommodation Plan (LTAP).

The LTAP has a number of recommendations concerning school consolidations/closures, new schools/additions and boundary changes over the 15-year planning horizon. These recommendations are intended to improve operating efficiencies and to provide stronger program opportunities for LDSB students.

In accordance with the new Ministry Pupil Accommodation Review Guideline (PARG) and the Board’s Pupil Accommodation Review Policy #15, prior to a Pupil Accommodation Review the following must occur:
  • Staff will need to prepare an Initial Staff Report and present to Trustees; and
  • Based upon the Initial Staff Report, Trustees may approve the formation of a Pupil Accommodation Review (PAR) for a group of schools or for a single school.
