Collegiate Ave. Consolidation Letter and Information

Tuesday, January 09, 2018

Thank you to those of you who were able to participate in the community information meeting held on Thursday December 21, 2017 at Collegiate Avenue School. This meeting followed the decision by the Board of Trustees on December 18, 2017 for staff to engage with the Ministry of Education to consider holding the $6 million provided for the Collegiate Ave. addition for the purpose of resubmitting the business case for building a new school. If written permission from the Ministry regarding this proposal is not obtained by January 31, 2018, the original motion (below) will move forward.

That the Board proceed with the project as funded by the Ministry: a 213 pupil place addition to the existing Collegiate Elementary School to support the consolidation of Green Acres Public School and R.L. Hyslop Public Schools with a commitment to a phased design approach and financial monitoring updates to the Finance and Facilities Committee to ensure the project is feasible, based on scope and budget
