Toronto schools to come under closing, boundary reviews in next six years

More than 100 schools will be involved in reviews for closing or boundary changes over the next six years under the Toronto District School Board’s updated long-term plan.

The board is also looking to ensure each area of the city offers programming in the arts, science and technology as well as the trades and other programs, said vice chair Jennifer Arp, a member of the planning and priorities committee, where the accommodation report will be discussed Wednesday.

“This helps the community understand, and to see the volume of work we are trying to undergo,” she said of the detailed proposal. “I think they then start to realize how the puzzle pieces fit together. Our planning people are very busy people.”

Between this fall and 2022, more than 50 schools — divided into 15 groups — will have gone through enrolment reviews; typically, one per grouping is recommended for closing.
