Broad Street Consultation Update

December 16, 2022

This message was sent to families in the Charles P. Allen Family of Schools. 


It’s hard to believe we are already nearing the end of our Virtual Town Hall.

We continue to hear from families, staff, community members and students. So far, more than 1,750 users have visited ThoughtExchange to share, rate and explore opinions and input. For an overview of the main themes and thoughts collected to date, click here.

In early December, we held a virtual meeting with school staff within the Charles P. Allen Family of Schools (CPA FOS). This week, we engaged students by inviting them to participate in an online survey to share their thoughts and ideas about the new school. So far, we have heard from over 235 students and are receiving great feedback.

We also got to tour the school this week! Want to see what the school looks like? Click here for a short video.

What’s next?

Last week, we received updated enrolment information. In January, we will use that data, along with the feedback we have received throughout our consultation, to evaluate and finalize our plan for the new schools on Broad Street. Once the boundaries are confirmed, we will create a transition plan to support staff, students and families at schools in the CPA FOS.

Don’t forget, our Virtual Town Hall is open until January 3, 2023. If you haven’t participated yet, or would like to contribute more ideas through ThoughtExchange, click here.

Thanks again for your contributions to this ongoing conversation. We look forward to providing our next update in the new year.
