Milton #10 CES Boundary Review: Virtual Public Information Meeting

Background

Milton #10 CES is located in the new residential development area of Boyne, in the southern part of the Town of Milton urban boundary. Approximately 16,900 residential units are expected for the Boyne community consisting of many low-density and medium-density developments.

Currently, all elementary students within the Boyne community are being accommodated at St. Scholastica CES for JK to Grade 8. However, St. Scholastica CES is projected to exceed site capacity by 2022 due to development pressures and the expanding French Immersion program.

On July 23, 2020, the Ministry of Education approved funding and the Board is currently proceeding with municipal approvals for Milton #10 CES. The school is currently under construction and is anticipated to be ready for the 2022-2023 school year.

As a response to the above noted accommodation concerns, Board staff initiated a New Development/Holding Area Administrative School Boundary Review Process involving St. Scholastica CES on May 4, 2021.

Note that the Milton #10 CES facility will be used as a holding school for St. Kateri Tekakwitha CSS (formally known as Milton #3 CSS) until the new secondary school building is complete. This boundary change is being proactively sought in anticipation of the Milton #10 CES future transition from a holding school to a JK to Grade 8 school and to address accommodation pressure at St. Scholastica CES.

On June 22, 2021, the School Boundary Review Committee met virtually and reviewed the current school boundaries and several proposed school boundaries for the Boyne community. The Committee moved to present Options 1 and 2 to the community for feedback.

Information Meeting Video

The YouTube video below provides detailed information on the School Boundary Review process, current school boundaries and proposed school boundaries.


Current Boundary

Currently, all of the Boyne community is directed to St. Scholastica CES.

Based on residential development growth in this community and the expansion of the French Immersion program, St. Scholastica CES is projected to exceed site capacity in the 2022-2023 school year. Due to this increasing enrolment, there will be a lack of space to accommodate additional new students at this school in the 2022-2023 school year.
