In support of our strategic priority to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of our operations, the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board has approved the establishment of a Pupil Accommodation Review.
The review will be carried out for:
• St. John Bosco Catholic School, Barry’s Bay
• George Vanier Catholic School, Combermere
• St. Andrew’s Catholic School, Killaloe
• St. Casimir’s Catholic School, Round Lake
• St. Mary’s Catholic School, Wilno.
The process will involve the formation of an Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) over the coming months. The mandate of the ARC is to review and make recommendations concerning accommodation options for the 5 schools. Recommendations may include school closures and/or consolidation and/or renovations or additions.
The ARC will be comprised of community stakeholders including a parent from each of the schools under review, a representative for the community, and a representative for teachers and non-teaching staff, principals and school board administration. In total, the ARC could include up to 12 members. The ARC will develop options to improve educational opportunities and operating efficiencies to best meet the needs of elementary students in our communities.
In keeping with the Ministry of Education’s Pupil Accommodation Guideline, the Board’s Pupil Accommodation Review Policy and its Procedure on the Accommodation Review Committee Process, the ARC is scheduled to present its findings and a report to the Director of Education in February 2014. Trustees would then receive reports in March 2014 with a Trustee decision scheduled for May 2014.
Commencing in September 2013, 10 ARC working meetings and four public meetings will be held. The first public meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 16, 2013. Information will be posted on the Board’s website throughout the ARC process.
