From Shelley Laskin:
There have been many articles written about surplus capacity in TDSB schools, and most recently, the Minister of Education called for the board to present a three-year capital plan that addresses surplus space. The situation in Ward 11, however, tells a different story and demonstrates why the board has to approach its capital issues in a careful and thoughtful way. New development and enrolment growth along the Yonge Street corridor have put tremendous pressure on area schools. On March 9, come hear staff discuss planning data and options that are being considered to address overcrowding in our schools and the challenges associated with funding both renewal and capital.
