The Board is currently undergoing a School Boundary Review Process to identify a long-term accommodation plan for the expansion of the French Immersion Program in Milton.
Parents/guardians can now access Virtual Public Information Session #1 for the Milton Catholic Elementary Boundary Review to Accommodate French Immersion Expansion Boundary Review process.
- The Town of Milton is a high growth community that continues to see new residential development, which results in high enrolment and accommodation pressures at existing Catholic elementary schools, as well as the need for new schools to meet demand in future development areas.
- Due to these accommodation pressures and the direction from the Board of Trustees to expand French Immersion programming for the 2021-2022 school year, a temporary alternate location was established at St. Peter CES for the 2021-2022 school year only.
- Under the current status quo, St. Scholastica Catholic Elementary School is approaching and could likely exceed site capacity in the 2021-2022 school year, while St. Peter Catholic Elementary School has sufficient space to temporarily accommodate a two (2) class French Immersion expansion for Milton in the 2021-2022 school year.
- On March 16, 2021, the Board of Trustees approved a motion to undertake the expansion of the French Immersion Program by satisfying all registrations annually in each region each year starting in 2022-2023.
- As a response to these concerns, the Board initiated an Elementary School Boundary Review for the Town of Milton and established a School Boundary Review Committee (SBRC), whose goal is to identify solutions to accommodate an expanded French Immersion program in Milton.
Review the Options & Complete the Survey!
Through five working meetings, the School Boundary Review Committee have agreed to present three potential boundary options to the community to gather feedback.
Please note that all proposed boundary options are in the Virtual Public Information Session webpage.
The feedback gathered will be shared with the School Boundary Review Committee at the next committee working meeting. Once the SBR Committee selects the preferred proposed boundary, it will be presented to the community once again for feedback.
Board staff will then be provided with the Committee’s recommendation for review and will present a recommendation to the Board of Trustees for consideration and approval.
We look forward to receiving your feedback!
