At the June 17, 2013 Board meeting, Trustees approved a recommendation to initiate the Central Mountain Accommodation Review which included Cardinal Heights, Eastmount Park, Franklin Road, George L. Armstrong, Linden Park, Pauline Johnson, Queensdale and Ridgemount elementary schools. The mandate of the Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) was to act in an advisory role that will study, report and provide recommendations on accommodation option(s) with respect to the group of schools or school being reviewed for the Board of Trustees’ consideration and decision. The Central Mountain ARC comprised of parents, teachers, non-teaching staff, principals and the area trustee began its work on October 1, 2013.
Over the course of eleven Working Group Meetings, four Public Meetings, school tours, community input through email, voicemail and public meetings, as well as countless hours spent reviewing background information the ARC and community members developed a total of thirty-five possible accommodation options. Through further consultation and feedback from the community the ARC chose to recommend two options.
On February 13, 2014 the ARC submitted its official report with two recommendations not ranked in order of preference for the Trustees’ consideration. The following report identifies key ARC timelines, provides an analysis of the accommodation option created by the Central Mountain Accommodation Review Committee and outlines the final staff recommendation.
