Community Partnerships

The Board believes in supporting the development of community facility partnerships whose operations enhance and respect the Board’s vision, mission statement, values, as well as the Board’s Multi-Year Strategic Plan and strategic directions.

Partnerships with community agencies and public service providers presents a key opportunity in creating complete neighbourhoods with an array of services and programs, located in a central and accessible community hub for students and residents alike.

The Community Planning & Facility Partnership Process

The Community Planning and Facility Partnership (CPFP) process is meant to provide Board approved partners, and other potential community partners within the region, an opportunity for entering into partnership within the Board’s existing and future facilities.

Community agencies have the opportunity to provide partnership proposals to the Board for new capital construction projects (new school or additions) and/or using under-utilized spaces within existing schools to reduce operational expenses. All new partnerships are to be cost-neutral, where fees will be charged to partners on a cost-recovery basis to cover operating costs, capital costs, administrative costs and property taxes (if applicable), for the space occupied by the partner

Staff is mandated to present its Annual Facility Accommodation Report in a public forum at least once a year. However, those that are interested in being on the approved notification list, or interested in partnering with the Board to use existing space within a school or co-building, are encouraged to contact the office of the Director of Education instead of waiting for the annual public meeting.

You can learn about our current partnership opportunities by using our new interactive Community Partnership Opportunities map.

Becoming a Partner

Once a proposal is received, the Board will consider at its sole discretion, to determine the eligibility of an applicant to become an approved community partner, and determine the value the proposed partnership has with regards to the Board’s interests. Interested partners that meet the criteria outlined in the Section 3.1 of Operating Policy I-37 will be invited to submit proposals for the use of under-utilized space in existing facilities.

Partnerships will be evaluated based on how well the proposal meets the community partner and partnership selection criteria outlined in Administrative Procedure VI-78. The Board will have full discretion when evaluating partners and their compatibility and suitability for each facility.

How to Submit a Proposal

After reading both the Community Planning & Facility Partnerships policies and procedure, interested agencies are to complete the Application for Interest for Community Planning & Facility Partnerships form, and submit it via email to the Office of the Director of Education and Planning Services.
