SCDSB Rules On Boundary Changes and School Consolidation

April 17, 2003 - Trustees of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board made a number of decisions regarding boundary changes during a special meeting of the board on April 15. Trustees voted in favour of a motion that approved boundary changes in the Valley East Family of Schools for Immaculate Conception and St. Anne elementary schools. Effective September 2003, the existing Immaculate Conception boundary would be extended to Frost Avenue for students in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 3. Current Grade 4, 5 and 6 students living within the new geographic area being added to the Immaculate Conception boundary who would otherwise attend St. Anne school, would also be permitted to attend Immaculate Conception school if they have younger siblings attending Immaculate Conception.

The Board also examined the accommodation review involving St. Mark elementary school in Markstay and its possible consolidation due to low enrolment and high operational costs. In the end, however, Trustees decided to maintain the status quo option for St. Mark school.

Graduates of St. Charles Catholic school in Chelmsford will continue to be received at
St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School and Marymount Academy in Sudbury.

Ray Vincent, Chair of the Sudbury Catholic Board stated that, “The decisions made by the Trustees and the Board this evening continue to focus on improving the quality of Catholic Education. Before making any decision on the motions placed before us by the staff, we review very carefully the information that we receive from school councils, parents and the community at large. We also take into consideration regular and new revenues in the 2003–2004 Student Focused Grant Regulations. Our mandate is to be fiscally responsible in the equitable distribution of our funds for the highest possible benefit of all the students entrusted in the care of the Board.”
