Renewal Needs Backlog and Facility Condition Index

Parents now have access to updated data on the condition of our 583 public schools. Read the TDSB Media Release.

In 2016, the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) became, what is thought to be, the first school board in Ontario to post each school’s Facility Condition Index  and Renewal Needs Backlog. This information is posted on the TDSB website annually.   

What you need to know

  • The TDSB is committed to be transparent with our parents, students and community members. This data is collected by an independent consultant hired by the Ontario Ministry of Education. However, until 2016, the data was not shared with the public.
  • Approximately 50 per cent of our schools are over 60 years old and building components continue to age requiring major repairs or replacement. Fifty one of our schools are older than 95 years, including seven that were built before 1900.
  • Our Renewal Needs Backlog is approximately $3.7 billion as of September 1, 2017.

The links on this page will provide you with direct access to the list of repairs required in each of our 583 schools. Some of the items that would compromise the security of our buildings were redacted. These items include, but are not limited to, security systems and fire alarms.

Please note that not one of the repairs listed in the Renewal Needs Backlog list represent a health or safety concern for students or staff.

Also, the Facility Condition Index rating does not reflect on the safety of a school building.

You can find the information for your school by name or address by visiting our Find Your School page. On each individual school web page you will see a ”Renewal Needs and FCI” link in the navigation menu on the left side of the page. That link will take you directly to the Renewal Needs Backlog (list of school building repairs) and the Facility Condition Index rating.

Learn more about the Renewal Needs Backlog and the Facility Condition Index, both of which include related Frequently Asked Questions.
