Invitation for public input on the pupil accommodation review policy

Originally published October 20, 2015

Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board is asking members of the public for their input into the Student Enrolment/School Capacity: Pupil Accommodation Review policy (pdf file).

Members of the public are invited to provide suggestions for the revised policy, in writing, to the Director’s Office at directors.office@hpedsb.on.ca, by Friday, November 6, 2015.

Background

In March 2015, the Ministry of Education released a new Pupil Accommodation Review Guideline which provides direction to school boards about the pupil accommodation review process.

School boards are responsible for establishing and complying with their pupil accommodation review policies to serve their local needs. School boards are required to consult with their communities prior to adopting or amending pupil accommodation policies.

School boards are responsible for managing their school capital assets in an effective manner. They must respond to changing demographics and program needs while ensuring continued student achievement and well-being, and the financial viability/sustainability of the school board.

Kerry Donnell, Communications Officer, 613-966-1170 or 1 800 267-4350, extension 2354, kdonnell@hpedsb.on.ca
