John Young Elementary School – Interim Accommodation Measures

John Young Elementary School is facing significant accommodation pressures in advance of the building and opening of the new Fernbank Elementary School. As a result, interim accommodation measures to relieve pressure are required to take effect for the next school year commencing September 2020 involving the following schools:

John Young Elementary School and Westwind Public School

As part of the Board-approved consultation process, an Advisory Committee comprised of Principals and School Council representatives from the two schools met in early December to further discuss staff’s proposed plan of:
Temporarily redirecting Fernbank-area Year 1 Kindergarten, Year 2 Kindergarten, and
Grade 1 students from John Young Elementary School to Westwind Public School.

Alternate accommodation options were also discussed.
The next step in the Consultation Plan is your opportunity to comment on the proposed accommodation plan that will be presented at a Public Meeting that is scheduled for:

Monday, January 20th, 2020
7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Westwind Public School
111 Hartsmere Drive

At the meeting, there was a brief presentation by Board staff, followed by a Question & Answer
session. Staff were available to answer questions on an individual basis following the meeting. An
information package providing details of the study and the proposal is available.
