About the Boundary Review
On September 12, 2019, the Halton District School Board directed staff to commence a secondary school boundary review process to create boundaries for the new Milton SW #1 High School. The review included Milton District HS, Craig Kielburger HS, and Frank J. Hayden HS. The Boundary was completed and approved on November 4, 2020.

Board Report - Update
The Director's Report (Report 20103) including the recommended boundary changes (Scenario 9b) was received by the Board of Trustees on October 21st, 2020 for information and approved on November 4th, 2020.
A subsequent information report (Report 20123) was presented to the Board of Trustees outlining the implications of the delayed opening of Milton SW #1 High School opening to a mid-year opening for the 2021-22 school year.
A summary of the implementation plan on Option 9b of the Milton SW #1 HS Boundary Review transition plan in light of the delayed opening:
- September 2021:
- All Grade 8 English Program Students that were to be directed to Milton SW#1 HS will be accommodated temporarily using one of the two interim accommodation plans
- I-STEM start delayed by one (1) year for grade 9 entry into the program
- Community Pathways Program placements delayed by one (1) year
- February 2022: Milton SW #1 HS students holding in interim accommodations are transferred to the anticipated completed school.
- September 2022:
- Grade 10 added to Milton SW #1 HS September 2022:
- I-STEM launches at Milton SW #1 HS for Grade 9
- Community Pathway Program placements available at Milton SW #1 HS
- September 2022: Assess the critical mass of students interested in attending Grade 11 at Milton
Temporary accommodations options
As Milton SW #1 HS will not be ready for September 2021, temporary accommodation options are being explored to house students in the interim until the facility obtains full or partial occupancy as early as February 2022.
Option A: Milton SW #1 HS Partial Occupancy and Portable Classrooms
The accommodation plan would entail the installation of twelve (12) portables on-site and the identification of an area within the partially completed school that is suitable for use as student accommodation, staff and students washroom facilities, and administrative space among other elements.
Option B: Milton District HS Holding - Establish a 'School within a School Model'
The second interim accommodation option would be to hold Milton SW #1 HS students temporarily at Milton District HS incorporating a 'school within a school' model. Milton SW #1 students would be accommodated in their classroom with their hs peers and their teachers. Milton SW#1 administration will be there to support the learning environment.
