In Spring 2020 community consultations were held regarding the accommodation of Regina Mundi and Dante Alighieri students during the upcoming redevelopment.
Due to the impacts of COVID-19 on school operations, the options previously presented are no longer available for the following reasons:
Monsignor Fraser (Norfinch): This previously presented relocation option is no longer available to accommodate the Dante Alighieri school community, as it now serves as the administration site of the St. Anne Catholic Academy, Virtual School of Learning.
Remaining on Site: Numerous considerations were expressed about the health and safety of students and staff while remaining on site during construction. Due to the pandemic, health and safety considerations are heightened by the need to maintain social distancing as best as possible. The impact on reduced use of site space, and the need for shared space between schools increases the instances of direct contact between students of both schools.
Don Bosco: The previously presented option at the former Don Bosco school remains the only viable option to accommodate Dante students during redevelopment.
Here are the latest updates and information regarding the new construction at Dante Alighieri Academy Catholic Secondary School.
A community consultation was held February 10 with members of the Dante Alighieri and Regina Mundi school communities to review redevelopment construction plans and related accommodation options.
The staff report “2020-2021 School Relocations Plan” was presented at the January 16 TCDSB Corporate Services Committee Meeting. The report included information about the construction of a new school for the Dante Alighieri community and a potential relocation option.
