Long Term Accommodation Plan
*JOIN US AT A PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT WORKSHOP THIS FEBRUARY*
CLICK HERE FOR THE SCHEDULE
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 Background Report provides information about population and enrolment trends, residential development, school utilization, facility condition, provincial policy, and funding affecting the board.
Staff will conduct 5 regional Public Engagement Workshops on the Background Report.
The following outlines the timeline for information sharing and public engagement over the next 6 months. 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.
Public engagement is planned in two phases:
The goal of the first phase of Public Engagement is to provide the public with a broad understanding of the facts related to school accommodation, population trends, enrolment trends, school utilization, facility conditions, etc. and gather feedback to inform the draft LTAP and help to complete the picture of our school communities.
Staff will present a summary of the LTAP Background Report at stakeholder meetings including the Parent Involvement Committee (PIC), Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC), and Student Senate.
Staff will also conduct 5 regional Public Engagement Workshops for the Background Report.
