Purpose of The System Review – Key Factors
The purpose of the facilities, boundaries and program locations review is to develop a long term planning framework that addresses the following:
- Changing demographics across the Division indicate that the population and enrolments are declining in some areas and increasing at a rapid rate in other areas.
- Changing demographics have resulted in an imbalance between facility capacity with current and projected enrolments.
- A lack of provincial funding for requested new school space has resulted in over-capacity at some schools, current and projected.
- A limited capacity to add core portable classrooms to school facilities and sites has created space issues in some schools.
