A Boundary Review Process was completed to establish a boundary for Milton #8 ps in southwest Milton. The new school was planned to open in the 2013/2014 school year, subject to Ministry of Education funding. In addition to setting the new school's boundary, this review aimed to develop an interim accommodation plan for the P.L. Robertson PS and Escarpment View PS school communities as they are projected to face significant accommodation pressures in the upcoming school year. In fact, P.L. Robertson PS is projected to exceed their total allowable number of portables.
Members of Milton's Supercouncil acted as representatives on the Boundary Review Committee.
Trustees selected Anne J. MacArthur as the name for the new elementary school in Milton.
The Director's report (Report 12037) provides details of the recommended boundary changes (Scenario 2b) and the recommended implementation. This report was presented to the Board of Trustees at the March 7, 2012 board meeting. The report and recommendations were considered and approved by Trustees at the March 21, 2012 Board meeting.
After the final decision was made by the Board of Trustees the approved boundary changes were communicated to parents.
The recommendations are as follows:
- Be it resolved that the Halton District School Board adjust the boundaries for the elementary schools in Milton as outlined in Scenario 2(b) and detailed in Report 12037, effective September 2012.
- Be it resolved that the Milton SW#8 public school, located in ERA #121, provide Junior Kindergarten – Grade 8 English programming and French Immersion Grades 1-8.
- Be it resolved that the Halton District School Board approve the implementation plan for future students of Milton SW#8 at the EC Drury High School site as outlined in Report 12037, effective September 2012.
