 Accommodation Review and New Schools

Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board (HPEDSB) is committed to providing the best educational opportunities while ensuring fiscal responsibility and to enhancing the learning environment in its schools for all students.

From time to time the Board will consider the need to consolidate, close or relocate a school(s) due to changes in curriculum, program demands, student enrolment, community demographics and other factors. In some circumstances these considerations may result in the need to carry out an accommodation review for a school or group of schools. The Board may recommend that an Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) be formed, as outlined in Policy 15: Student Enrolment/School Capacity - Pupil Accommodation Review.

The Board is committed to the following guiding principles:

Student achievement and well-being.

  • Effective stewardship of school board resources.
  • Student curriculum and program needs, as well as funding and renewal needs, will drive facility planning.
  • Upgrades to the condition of facilities will occur where feasible.
  • The Board will comply with Ministry of Education guidelines for school consolidation and closure decisions.
  • The Board will exemplify open decision-making, Board oversight and public participation in capital planning.

Accommodation Review Committee (ARC)

The ARC is a committee established by the school board that represents the affected school(s) of an accommodation review. The ARC acts as the official conduit for information shared between the school board and the affected school communities during the accommodation review.  The following accommodation reviews have been completed:


Policy 15: Student Enrolment School Capacity Pupil Accommodation Review

Ministry Resource: Guide to Pupil Accommodation Reviews

Procedure 178: Accommodation Review Committee (ARC)

Procedure 570: Community Planning and Partnerships

Student Enrolment/ School Capacity Committee: meetings
