ONE YEAR AGO THIS WEEK:

 

TVDSB EPAR HOLDS FORUM

AYLMER – “About 200 persons attended the first public forum of the TVDSB EPAR (Elementary Pupil Accomodation Review) proposal at EESS last night. The review is in relation to a plan announced this fall to shift attendance and close and build schools affecting a dozen schools in Middlesex south of the 401 and Elgin. A key component of the change is to close three schools in Elgin – Springfield, New Sarum, and South Dorchester – and build a new one in Belmont. Kevin Bushell, TVDSB Facility Services and Capital Planning, chaired the meeting. Also present were 3 Superintendents and 6 trustees including Chris Goodall of Elgin and Chair Matthew Reid. The agenda consisted first of an hour long review of the Senior Administration Report on the issue which outlined review procedures/findings. Next was the only public presentation – by Malahide Mayor Dave Mennill. Then each of the school’s EPAR committees (formed in December) were allowed to ask questions. No questions were allowed from the public. The next step in the EPAR process is that each school EPAR committee will hold a public meeting on Monday at 7 pm. A second general public meeting will be held on February 8 at Parkside Collegiate. A third general public meeting will be held on March 8 at EESS. The TVDSB is expected to make a decision in May.”
