The Halton District School Board is working with the City of Burlington to move forward with next steps in the City’s purchase of the former Robert Bateman High School property (5151 New St, Burlington).
In June 2021
, HDSB trustees approved a plan to relocate the Burlington Gary Allan Learning Centre to Robert Bateman High School, both located in Burlington, and declare the remainder of the Robert Bateman High School facility surplus to its needs. In September 2021, the City of Burlington expressed interest to acquire the property and provide the HDSB with a 25-year lease to accommodate Gary Allan Learning Centre
, which provides adult, alternative and continuing education programs, and language instruction programs for newcomers, among others.
This will ensure that the Board continues to maintain a visible and continued presence in the southeast Burlington area, and continue offering and operating important educational programs within the community.
The Board looks forward to continuing to work with the City of Burlington on this matter.
