Davisville-Yonge ARC

In the 2009-2010 school year, the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) formed the Davisville-Yonge Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) in order to to determine the future of the following schools:

  • Davisville Junior Public School / MTSD
  • Eglinton Junior Public School
  • Hodgson Senior Public School
  • Maurice Cody Junior Public School
  • Spectrum Alternative Senior School

An ARC is required by the Ontario Ministry of Education when a school board review of the future accommodation needs of students at the schools in a particular area may have a substantial impact on those students. The outcome of an ARC may result in the following for any school involved:

  • Closing a school or schools;
  • Expanding one or more schools;
  • Changing the grades offered;
  • Changing school boundaries; and/or
  • Moving programs into or out of a school

At a Board meeting on Wednesday, June 23, 2010, the Board of Trustees of the Toronto District School Board made a number of decisions about schools in our area, including the following:

  • That a school presence be maintained at the Davisville Junior Public School/Metropolitan Toronto School for the Deaf, Maurice Cody Junior Public School, Eglinton Public School, and Hodgson Senior Public School sites
  • That the deaf/hard of hearing programs remain at Davisville Junior Public School/Metropolitan Toronto School for the Deaf pending relocation to one locale as per a previous Board decision
  • That Spectrum Alternative Senior School be relocated to Davisville Junior Public School/Metropolitan Toronto School for the Deaf effective September 2011

One additional result of these decisions, though it was not specified above, was the construction of additional classroom space at Maurice Cody Junior Public School.
