Virtual Public Information Session

The YCDSB will hold a virtual public information session on Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at 7 pm on YouTube. At this session, the Local Boundary Review Committee (consisting of the school principals, school superintendents, the local Catholic School Trustee, planning staff, construction staff and Student Transportation Services staff) will provide families with an update regarding the new multi-use facility that will consist of an elementary school, secondary school and childcare centre to serve residents in the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville.

Community Feedback

After the session, families will also be provided with the opportunity to submit their feedback that will be used by staff to develop final recommendations for approval by the Board of Trustees. The online form will be available through this page after after the session and will remain open until Wednesday, November 4, 2020.

The goal of the boundary review is to determine attendance boundaries for the new schools, confirm the consolidation of French Immersion programs into one location and determine the opening grade structure for St. Katharine Drexel CHS.
