Long Term Accommodation Plan
*Note: The deadline to provide comments on the Draft Final Report is May 29*
A Long Term Accommodation Plan (LTAP) is a comprehensive planning document that will help guide capital investment, program, and facility decisions to support a long term vision for the Upper Grand District School Board.
Using data including school size, condition, program and utilization, demographic trends, and expected enrolments, accommodation issues will be identified. Identifying issues in a Board-wide plan allows the Board to plan proactively, prioritize next steps and determine the impact of accommodation decisions on the system.
The LTAP is intended to be a living document and will be updated regularly.
The Long Term Accommodation Plan Final Report (Draft) and Phase 2 Public Engagement Plan was presented to trustees at the Business Operations meeting on April 10, 2018. This report identifies short and long-term priorities to address student accommodation needs. It was developed based on the data from the Background Report, as well as feedback received through Phase 1 of public engagement in February.
The Background Report was released in January 2018. Staff conducted 5 regional Public Engagement Workshops to share information from the Background Report and gather input from the public.
Staff will host an additional 5 public meetings throughout the month of May to gather input on the LTAP Final Report (Draft).
The following outlines the timeline for information sharing and public engagement throughout the LTAP process. The objective is to provide the Board and the broader public and school communities with multiple opportunities to provide input during the process and allow that input to feed back into Staff’s work to prepare a final LTAP report by the end of the school year.

Public engagement is an important component of the LTAP process. The purpose of engagement is to encourage conversation between the Board, staff, the public, partners, and school communities and promote a shared understanding of local issues.
Feedback will inform both the development of a Final LTAP and future planning processes related to school accommodation.
Phase 2 of Public Engagement is currently underway. For information related to Phase 1 including workshop presentations, poster boards, and the schedule of meetings, please click here.
The objective of the second phase of Public Engagement is to share the LTAP Final Report (Draft) and gather feedback prior to completion of the Final LTAP Report and presentation to the Board for approval in June.
Staff will present the LTAP Final Report (Draft) at stakeholder meetings including the Parent Involvement Committee (PIC), Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC), and Student Senate.
Staff will also conduct 5 regional Public Meetings for the LTAP Final Report (Draft). The meeting format will include a staff presentation of the report and a question and answer session. All are welcome to attend.
