Addition and Renewal Work at Collegiate Elementary School
As part of the Lower Stoney Creek Accommodation Review, the Board of Trustees approved the closure of Collegiate Avenue, Eastdale, Green Acres, Memorial (Stoney Creek), Mountain View, and R.L. Hyslop, pending Ministry of Education funding for three new JK-8 elementary schools on the Collegiate, Eastdale and Memorial (Stoney Creek) sites.
As you are aware, HWDSB did not receive funding for a new school on the Collegiate Site but did receive $6 million in funding for an addition to Collegiate that will accommodate an additional 213 students and a 3-room child care centre, while supporting the consolidation of Green Acres and R.L. Hyslop. In addition, HWDSB has allocated $4.35 million for renewal and elementary benchmark work for a total of $10.35 million to be spent at Collegiate.
