Milton Catholic Secondary School Boundary Review

Background

On September 30, 2019, the Board submitted its 2019-20 Capital Priorities Submission to the Ministry of Education. The Milton #3 Catholic Secondary School (CSS) project was submitted as Priority #1. It is anticipated the funding announcements will be made in early 2020, at which point the Board will receive confirmation if it was successful.

The 2019 Long-Term Capital Plan Update indicates that due to Jean Vanier CSS reaching its maximum portable capacity by the 2021-22 school year, the Milton #3 CSS project is required by the same school year. However, seeing as a secondary school takes a minimum of three years to construct, a 2021-22 opening date is not feasible. This may result in Milton #3 CSS students having to be temporarily relocated to alternate school accommodations with available space within the Board’s jurisdiction.

As a response to the above concerns, the Board initiated a Secondary School Boundary Review for the Town of Milton secondary panel at the November 26, 2019 Special Board Meeting. Read the full report: Milton Secondary School Boundary Review Action Report – November 26, 2019 

Goals of this Boundary Review

  • Define the school attendance boundary for the future Milton #3 CSS, as well as its elementary family of schools;
  • Identify an interim holding school to temporarily accommodate Milton #3 CSS students, in wait for the school opening;
  • Work with senior staff to develop an interim and ultimate accommodation plan for Milton Secondary Students; and,
  • Define future holding areas for the next Milton Catholic Secondary School, as defined in the Board’s 2019 Long-Term Capital Plan.
