2016-17 Schools Meeting the Criteria for Facilities Collaboration, May 2017
The Ministry of Education introduced the Community Planning and Partnerships Guideline (CPP), March 2015, in order to encourage school boards to reach out to community organizations to share planning information on a regular basis, particularly as it relates to the use of space in schools. This includes sharing information about potential space in existing schools, future school sites, and new builds. This is the second annual meeting the UCDSB has hosted in order to provide updates on school space for our potential partners and to identify which schools that meet the criteria to be potential facilities collaboration opportunities.
What organizations qualify for facility collaboration?
Before entering into a facility partnership, there is a need to determine the expectations for the partnering organization and how it aligns with the UCDSB’s strategic direction. Partnerships must be appropriate for the school setting and not compromise student achievement strategies. For instance, organizations that provide competing education services such as tutoring services, JK-12 private schools, private colleges, and credit offering entities that are not government funded are not eligible partners. Above all, the health and safety of students must be protected.
Space usage criteria is also provided in Facility Collaboration Policy 4002, as being “buildings that meet one or both of the following criteria: A utilization rate of less than sixty (60) per cent for the last two (2) years; two hundred (200) or more unused pupil places.”
School names and space availability shown in the summary charts provided below is subject to change without notice, due to enrolment, program or facilities changes.
