September 6, 2016—On August 25, 2016, the Ministry of Education released facility condition data for Ontario schools. This information is posted on the Ministry of Education website at: http://edu.gov.on.ca/eng/parents/fci.html 
The Facility Condition Index (FCI) is a source of data about the state of school repairs. The Ministry of Education gathers this information in five-year cycles, the last of which took place from 2011 to 2015. The data is routinely used by the Ministry of Education and school boards for planning capital projects and school repairs.
FCI information is included in the HPEDSB draft Long-Term Capital and Accommodation Plan (linked below). However, the FCI in that plan is based on 10-year projections rather than 5-year.
HPEDSB is presently revising the data in the draft Long-Term Capital and Accommodation Plan to align with the new 5-year provincial data.
June 15, 2016—The date for review and input to the draft Long-Term Capital and Accommodation Plan has been extended to September 30, 2016.
The plan is a compilation of data for all schools in Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board and serves as a road map for the next several years. It contains no specific recommendations regarding school closure or consolidations.
All are invited to review the draft plan and provide written feedback until Friday, September 30, 2016 to [email protected]
Future reference about the plan and bulletins can be viewed online .
