These identified schools can provide potential spaces for community partners on a cost recovery basis.
Where available space has been identified for partnership opportunities the following principles will be the primary consideration when identifying suitable partnerships:
Partnerships will not compromise the health and safety of Limestone DSB students and staff;
Partnerships will not compromise the student achievement strategy of the Board;
Partnerships will respect the values of the Board;
Partnerships will improve services and supports available to the students and community in which the school is located;
Partnerships will reduce facility operating costs for school boards and government;
Partnerships will maximize the use of public infrastructure through increased flexibility and utilization;
Partnerships will strengthen relationships between the Board and community partners and the public.
Operation and maintenance of the space will be carried out by the Board on a cost recovery basis to the partner. Any renovations required by the partner to effectively use the space must be approved by the Board and paid for by the partner.
