Facilities Plan Backgrounder

Background: Process and Data

In August 2014 the Board embarked on its long range facilities planning process with the following principles at its core: provide best learning environments, sustainability and stability, renewal, better, more pro-active delivery of services to students and stakeholders, more competitive, effective organization, provide best workplace for employees, lower cost of ownership to transfer investment from operations and capital to the classroom.

In February 2015 the Board reviewed possible future school configuration scenarios (over 90 collected through public and staff feedback). In February 2016, the Board directed staff to carry out a full analysis of 50 possible future school configuration scenarios (Appendix A). These 50 scenarios were identified based on a fit analysis. The fit analysis looked at the capacity ranges of our schools and was Criteria #7 of the 16 weighted criteria to be used for analysis as identified by the Board in September 2014 (see page 4). Option N30 was added to the analysis as a result of the scenario scoring feedback period and a suggestion from the public. Data - Facilities & Financial affiliated data is provided below.
