The next Community Planning and Partnerships (CPP) public meeting date is TBD.

Community Planning and Partnership Meeting Information and Presentations

Eligible community partners as outlined in Board Policy #422, Facility Partnerships, may inquire regarding potential facility partnering with future schools on the capital priorities listing.

The Board must be saved harmless with respect to the design and construction costs of the partnership, and all partnerships must:

  • be of value to students and/or the community;
  • be appropriate for a school setting;
  • be compliant with local bylaws;
  • not compromise student achievement
List of Underutilized S​chools

According to the Ministry of Education's Community Planning and Partnership Guideline, the schools listed in the tables below (Part A and Part B) meet the criteria of a utilization rate of 60% or lower, or more than 200 pupil places available (excluding portables), from 2020 to 2024:

The schools identified in Part A below are potential facility partnership opportunities; however, they are subject to a review to determine partner requirements and confirm suitability at these identified schools. Due to current school operating constraints resulting from the pandemic, the implementation of potential partnerships will be on hold until further notice.

Even though the schools in Part B meet the partnership criteria, they are not available for potential facility partnership opportunities as they are required for planned student programming or proposed partnership requirements.

All submissions from eligible partners will be reviewed for suitability of the following, but not limited to building configuration, separate access being available or created where appropriate, suitable parking and access exists, space not required for other Board programming, and other conditions as determined by the Board. For more details, see Board Policy 422, Facility Partnerships.
