Process & Timeline

Last updated on Tuesday, August 06, 2013.

The Elementary Accommodation Review is an eight-month process that involves a series of working and public meetings, at which a committee of stakeholders strives to provide an accommodation scenario for schools in their specified review area. The committee is comprised of principals, teachers, staff, parents, students and community members. Meetings began in October 2013.
