Program Area Review

Background

A new Yonge-Eglinton Phase 2 Program Area Review Team has been established to continue looking at accommodation solutions to address overcrowding at Eglinton Jr PS, and will include consideration of the Bannockburn building to resolve ongoing accommodation pressures in the Yonge-Eglinton area. A previous review team was established in early 2019, but was paused in April 2019 after changes were announced by the Province affecting secondary school class sizes and funding. At the same time, a system-wide French Review and a Secondary Program Review were being undertaken. Directives coming out of those system reviews have now been incorporated into staff’s work to address the accommodation pressures impacting local schools in this area.
