At the June 17, 2013 Board meeting, Trustees approved a recommendation to initiate the East Hamilton City 1 Accommodation Review which included Hillcrest, Parkdale, Rosedale, Roxborough Park, Viscount Montgomery, WH Ballard, and Woodward. The mandate of the 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 being reviewed for the Board of Trustees’ consideration and decision. The East Hamilton City 1 Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) comprised of parents, teaching and non-teaching school staff began its work on October 3, 2013.
Over the course of eight (8) Working Group Meetings, four (4) Public Meetings, school tours, community input through email, and voicemail, as well as countless hours spent reviewing background information the ARC and community members developed a number of possible accommodation solutions. With further consultation and feedback from the community, the ARC chose to recommend two (2) options.
On February 10, 2014 the ARC submitted its official report with two recommendations for the Trustees’ consideration. The following report identifies key ARC timelines, provides an analysis of the accommodation recommendations created by the East Hamilton Accommodation Review Committee and outlines the final staff recommendation.
