Schools Meeting Criteria

Schools Meeting the Criteria for Facilities Collaboration

The Ministry of Education introduced the Community Planning and Partnerships Guideline (CPP), March 2015, in order to encourage school boards to reach out to community organizations to share planning information on a regular basis, particularly as it relates to the use of space in schools. This includes sharing information about potential space in existing schools, future school sites, and new builds. Annual CPP meetings hosted by the UCDSB provide updates on school space for our potential partners and identify which schools meet the criteria to be potential facilities collaboration opportunities.

Space usage criteria is also provided in Facility Collaboration Policy 4002, as being “buildings that meet one or both of the following criteria:

1. A utilization rate of less than sixty (60) per cent for the last two (2) years, Two hundred (200) or more unused pupil places.”

What organizations qualify for facility collaboration?

Before entering into a facility partnership, there is a need to determine the expectations for the partnering organization and how it aligns with the UCDSB’s strategic direction. Partnerships must be appropriate for the school setting and not compromise student achievement strategies. For instance, organizations that provide competing education services such as tutoring services, JK-12 private schools, private colleges, and credit offering entities that are not government funded are not eligible partners. Above all, the health and safety of students must be protected.

School names and space availability are provided at the UCDSB's annual CPP meetings.  

A list of schools that qualified at the time of the respective meetings are provided here:
