The goal of this review is to align elementary feeder school boundaries with SCI’s attendance area. The decision to review the attendance areas was part of the outcome of a Pupil Accommodation Review involving SCI, Byng Public School and Clearview Meadows Elementary School that that took place last year. We expect minimal changes to the SCI attendance area and student population.</p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">The accompanying map shows areas that are under review and may be affected by boundary changes. SCDSB staff are currently considering the following:</p><div style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><ul style="margin:0px 0px 10px 25px;padding:0px;"><li style="line-height:20px;">Aligning the Clearview Meadows ES boundary entirely with SCI’s attendance area<br></li><li style="line-height:20px;">Aligning the Nottawasaga & Creemore PS boundary entirely with SCI’s attendance area<br></li><li style="line-height:20px;">Aligning the Nottawa ES boundary entirely with CCI’s attendance area<br></li><li style="line-height:20px;">Giving students from New Lowell that currently reside in the NPSS attendance area a choice between NPSS and SCI<br></li><li style="line-height:20px;">Giving students directly affected by changes the choice to stay at their current school at the time of implementation<br></li></ul></div><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">​The SCDSB staff recommendation will be presented to our Board of Trustees for a decision in March 2017. Any approved changes will take effect in September 2018.</p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">A public information meeting has been scheduled to present the SCDSB staff recommendation and answer questions from members of the community.</p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">​Date: January 31, 2017<br>Time: 7 p.m.<br>Location: Stayner Collegiate Institute</p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">You are most welcome to attend this meeting to learn more about the proposed plan.
