May 6, 2020 (Brockville) – The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) has taken possession of a property located at 550 King Street West in Brockville, which will be the future site of a new school for the Brockville area.

The plan is to build a new Kindergarten to Grade 6 school that will accommodate up to 500 students on the 14.33 acre parcel of land in Brockville’s west end. The school will also have dedicated child care spaces and an EarlyOn Centre.

The project, which represents a $14.3 million investment from the Ministry of Education, will now move into the design phase.

“This project has been on the horizon since 2017, so we are very happy to have been able to secure this piece of property. Getting the land for the new school is a significant step forward for the UCDSB and the community,” says UCDSB Chair John McAllister. “This is great news for our school district and the families in Brockville. This school represents a true commitment to education and our community. It will be a top-of-the-line facility that students will be able to flourish in for years to come.”

The design of the school will be modelled after Bridgewood Public School in Cornwall, which opened in the fall of 2016 and Kemptville Public School, which opened in the fall of 2017. In a means to make the school environmentally friendly, the UCDSB is investigating options to install solar panels and have electric car charging stations, among other features.

“I’m pleased that the Upper Canada District School Board has taken possession of the property and I know this news will be welcomed by parents and students in Brockville and area. I look forward to continuing to work with the board and our government on this project as we continue to invest in the future of our students by providing them with a world-class education in our community,” adds Steve Clark, MPP, Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes.
