Accommodation Review Process
The Simcoe County District School Board undertakes Pupil Accommodation Reviews to address enrolment, programming, and facility condition challenges.
All accommodation review areas face particular challenges regarding enrolment (either too few or too many students), the ability to deliver programming (splitting grades or scheduling classes), and the condition of school buildings (the need for repairs).
This review process enables the public to make informed recommendations to the Board through volunteer Accommodation Review Committees (ARCs) whose membership includes parents/guardians, teachers, principals, municipal, and business representatives.
The Board of Trustees has ultimate authority and responsibility to make decisions regarding schools involved in an accommodation review process.In making those decisions the Board will receive reports from the Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) and from administration, and will hear delegations from interested parties at a public Special Board meeting called for that purpose.
Section 4.5.7 of Policy 2313, Pupil Accommodation Review Policy, clearly sets out the timing and notice for meetings at which the Board will receive public input and make decisions.
