2020-2021 Long Term Accommodation Plan
The 2020-2021 LTAP provides projections for the years 2021 to 2030 for each Elementary and Secondary Review Area (ERA and SRA) and individual schools. It also identifies new capital project initiatives for the Board from 2020/2021 to 2025/2026 in preparation for any potential updates as required by the Ministry of Education for the Capital Priorities funding requests.
The 2020-2021 LTAP was presented to the Committee of the Whole on September 29, 2021. Comments from the public were shared with the Committee of the Whole on October 13, 2021. At the October 20, 2021 Board meeting the LTAP was approved.
The Board Report will outline enrolment concerns including schools that are either over or underutilized, where issues are raised, the data informs the Board on decisions for boundary reviews, new school construction and potential Program and Accommodation Reviews.

Before the LTAP was approved by the Board, parents and guardians as well as the wider public were invited to provide feedback on the document from September 23- October 6, 2021.
The online feedback was collected by staff and reported back to Trustees with the results on the October 13, 2021 Committee of the Whole meeting.
What is a Long Term Accommodation Plan?
A Long Term Accommodation Plan (LTAP) is an annually reviewed planning document produced by the Halton District School Board that provides enrolment projections and guides accommodation planning for a 10-year period. The LTAP also identifies accommodation pressures resulting from these projected enrolments and proposes strategies to address them.
The basis of this plan is to identify new capital project initiatives for the Board over the next four years, in preparation for Capital Priorities funding requests through the Ministry of Education. The Ministry launched the 2021 Capital Priorities program on March 24, 2021, through Memorandum 2021:B05 Request for Capital Priorities Project Funding Submissions. Proposed capital project initiatives identified by Board staff are listed in the Capital Project Initiatives section of the 2020-2021 LTAP.
It also provides an opportunity to identify boundary studies and to address accommodation pressures due to new residential development, changing demographics, and program pressures.

The projections in the LTAP are a reflection of enrolment trends to be expected for a review area, school and program based on socioeconomic and demographic factors. Projections provide an indication of the vitality of the school in years to come as well as identify any enrolment issues.
To produce a long range projection, information regarding existing school communities, new growth from development and Junior Kindergarten projections are calculated separately, and then integrated. Census data is provided in the LTAP for reference only and is not used in producing enrolment projections. Further details can be found within the LTAP or in the Projection Methodology PowerPoint presentation.
The Long Term Accommodation Plan (LTAP) is divided into four sections based on municipality. These sections contain information on individual elementary and secondary review areas (ERAs and SRAs), such as trends, developmental information, enrolment pressures, historical and projected enrolment, and utilization rates. In addition, feeder school lists, and available Regional Programs and Special Education Programs/Placements are also provided. The sections are provided below based on municipality.
A summary of enrolment and boundary issues in each municipality is provided in the Enrolment and Boundary Issues section of the 2020-2021 LTAP. This shows the utilization in 2020 as well as projected utilization from 2021 to 2025.
