Sudbury Catholic Board Places Schools in East Planning Area Under Review

February 24, 2009 - In accordance with its Pupil/School Accommodation Review Regulation BR 10, the Sudbury Catholic District School Board is in the process of conducting an Accommodation Review for its family of schools situated in the East Planning Area. Sudbury Catholic Schools Director of Education, Catherine McCullough will recommend an action plan to Trustees at a special Board Meeting in May 2010.

The Sudbury Catholic District School Board is committed to providing a full range of educational opportunities equitably distributed across a broad and diverse geographical area. Due to ever-changing factors such as mobile population, changes in funding, new legislation, changing in educational objectives, community aspirations and physical limitations of buildings, the Board is obligated to monitoring and evaluating all schools on a regular basis.

Given the present state of its priorities, the Board will be focussing its attention on the East Planning Area for the purpose of this Accommodation Review which will include the following schools;

Elementary:
Pius XII Catholic School
St. Andrew Catholic School
St. Bernadette Catholic School
St. John Catholic School
St. Mark Catholic School
St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School
St. Raphael Catholic School

Secondary:
St. Charles College
St. Albert Adult Learning Centre

The School Accommodation Review may result in such changes as boundary adjustments, major additions, renovations and alterations to school buildings, blending or twinning arrangements for school organization and/or programs or school consolidations

The Board is in the process of informing parents, staff, school councils, and school communities of the logistics and time lines regarding its Accommodation Review. The Sudbury Catholic District School Board has hired the firm of Waston and Associates Economists Ltd. (one of Canada’s leading economic firms) to prepare population, household, employment and student enrolment forecasts in the City of Greater Sudbury and more specifically in the planning area of the schools under review. This information will greatly assist the Sudbury Catholic District School Board in assessing opportunities for long term growth and development and help guide the Board in the implementation of accommodation strategies that will serve to enhance student learning.

Accommodation Review Committees (ARC’s) will be created to provide the Sudbury Catholic District School Board with information re School Valuation Framework and applying this framework to the schools under review, giving consideration to the value of the students, community, school board and the local economy.
