Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario plans closures

CORNWALL — The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) voted at their October 4th meeting to begin a Pupil Accomodation Review of schools in the board.

The review affects nine schools in Cornwall including St. Joseph`s Catholic Secondary School.

Under the proposed plan, St. Columban`s, Immaculate Conception and Sacred Heart elementary schools would close, with students transferred to remaining elementary schools in Cornwall.

Grade 7-8 students in all Catholic elementary schools in Cornwall would move to St. Joe`s which would be converted to a dual-track Grade 7-12 school. St. Joe`s is the only catholic secondary school in the CDSBEO that is not dual-tracked.

The planned changes to St. Joe’s include rebuilding the school or relocating to a new building with approval of provincial funding.
