New Broad Street Schools: Consultation

*This page will be updated as new information becomes available.

Share Your Voice

Between November 1, 2022 and January 3, 2023, we invite students, staff, families, School Advisory Councils and community members within the Charles P. Allen Family of Schools (CPA FOS) to participate in a Virtual Town Hall about the new Pre-Primary to Grade 8 and Grades 9 to 12 schools opening on Broad Street in September 2023. The purpose of this consultation is to gather your input as the Halifax Regional Centre for Education (HRCE) considers the following to address enrolment pressures within the CPA FOS:

  1. Proposed Pre-Primary to Grade 8 boundary;
     
  2. Proposed grade configurations at some schools; and
     
  3. The idea of families choosing where they want their child to attend high school (CPA OR the new Broad Street school).

Once boundaries and grade configurations are established, you will have a chance to share your thoughts on other topics. 

Participants will have multiple opportunities to join this ongoing conversation. We encourage you to provide input through an online platform called ThoughtExchange. ThoughtExchange allows you to contribute ideas and opinions anonymously, see what others have to say and rate comments - as many times as you would like! You will also have the opportunity to share your thoughts by submitting comments on our website, by email, phone, and/or through traditional mail. 

Throughout the consultation process, we will respond to frequently-asked questions and provide additional materials as required. Once the Virtual Town Hall closes, we will consider all participant input before HRCE’s Regional Executive Director of Education determines the final boundaries of the Broad Street schools, as well as any necessary grade reconfigurations.

Once the consultation process ends, we will work to finalize the items outlined above and create a transition plan to support staff, students and families at schools in the CPA FOS. It will take a few years to complete this work. 

We know you will have many questions as we work through this process. We will update this webpage as new information becomes available, and with answers to your questions.

Proposed Choice Boundary

What does choice boundary mean?

The new Grades 9 to 12 high school on Broad Street is located near Charles P. Allen High. This provides us with an opportunity to offer innovative and specialized programming for students. When these programs are established, families with students entering high school will have an option to choose which of the two schools they will attend.
