Program Area Review

Thank you for participating in the Program Area Review involving; Avondale EAS, Avondale PS, Bayview MS, Crestview PS, Elkhorn PS, Finch PS, Hollywood PS, McKee PS, and Woodbine MS.

The Willowdale community is experiencing significant residential development and population changes that have resulted in enrolment growth at local schools.

A TDSB team including local Trustees, Superintendents, Principals, and central staff was formed to look at options to reduce enrolment pressures at Avondale PS. The team developed and considered many options to address the pressure at Avondale PS. Staff is recommending that Avondale Elementary Alternative School be relocated to Bayview MS. After looking at several possible solutions, staff considers Bayview MS to be the most viable due to its location and availability of space.

A Program Area Review is being established to share this option with the school community. This option also includes giving students in Grade 6-8, who have been redirected to Woodbine MS, an opportunity to return to Bayview MS.
