Bishop Alexander Carter CSS, Valley East's newest secondary school, will relocate to the current site of St. Anne School in Hanmer by September 2003. To plan for these changes, Board Trustees approved motions in relation to the review of boundaries for Bishop Alexander Carter CSS, St. Charles School in Chelmsford, St. Anne School and Immaculate Conception School at their January 7, 2003 meeting. An additional motion covering the review of programs and boundaries at St. Mark School was also passed. Public meetings at affected schools have been scheduled, and a final decision by trustees is due in April.|
At the Board meeting of January 7, 2003, Trustees approved the following motions:
"THAT the Sudbury Catholic District School Board approves, according to Policy EL110 and Board Regulation BR10, that there be a review of boundaries for the Bishop Alexander Carter CSS as it relates to St. Charles Catholic School in Chelmsford."
"THAT the Sudbury Catholic District School Board approves, according to Policy EL110 and Board Regulation BR10 with the advent of our Bishop Alexander Carter CSS, that there be a review of boundaries for St. Anne and Immaculate Conception Catholic Schools French Immersion and Regular programs." and
"THAT the Sudbury Catholic District School Board approves, according to policy EL110 and Board Regulation BR10, that there be a review of programs and boundaries for St. Mark Catholic School."
At the Principals' meeting in October, the Director of Education outlined the process for the accommodation review process and provided copies of the information packages previously given to Trustees.
Over the last few weeks, the school superintendent and the Chairperson of the Board met with each Catholic school council executive to discuss the process. There will be public meetings for all parents, school staff and Catholic school ratepayers as follows:
