Accommodation Reviews

At the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), we want our students to succeed. We believe that by providing students with equitable access and opportunities to programs, we can help them reach their full potential. One way of doing that is by offering the right programs at the right schools.

Toronto is a dynamic city. The population may be growing in some areas but declining in others. These demographic changes have an impact on our schools so it is critical that we plan ahead.

Therefore, the TDSB has developed the Long-Term Program and Accommodation Strategy. This strategy, updated and presented to the Board of Trustees annually for approval, includes several types of accommodation reviews, some of which involve community engagement. These reviews are listed below.

Pupil Accommodation Review (PARC)
A Pupil Accommodation Review involves studying a school that is significantly underutilized and its surrounding schools. The review considers ways to reduce surplus space and ensure that students have access to viable programs. It may result in the movement of a large number of students between schools or a possible school closure.

Program Area Review (PART)
This process looks at the programs offered within a community or grouping of schools and identifies program gaps or space needs. A review may involve looking at a range of options to increase access to programs including the establishment of new schools, introduction of new specialized programs or possible changes to grade configurations. More information about Program Area Reviews can be found in the attached brochure.

Boundary Change Review
Local neighborhood schools have attendance areas defined by boundaries that are used to establish admission to a school’s regular program. Boundaries between two schools can be changed to reduce overcrowding, utilize surplus space or designate addresses to a closer school.

Property Review
We realize our school buildings and properties are valuable community assets and we want to ensure we make good decisions about their future use. The purpose of this type of review is to determine if a site should be retained or if it is no longer required for future use and can be declared surplus to the needs of the TDSB and sold.
