Office of the Director of Education

September 15, 2017
Dear Parents/Guardians;
This letter is to inform you of a joint St. Michael / St. Paul community meeting that will be held at St. Michael Catholic Elementary School on Tuesday, October 3rd at 6:30 p.m. in the gymnasium.

In a letter dated August 4th, 2017, the Ministry of Education announced that it did not approve funding for a new consolidated elementary school at the former Duke of York Public School site. School boards have also been informed by the Ministry that there are no monies remaining in the $750 million school consolidation fund, so submitting another business case requesting funding from this source is not an option.
As a result, staff are now in the process of formulating a new request to the Ministry of Education for funding at St. Paul through the Capital Funding process. The proposed staff request includes funding for child care, a larger gym, a new playground and building renovations. As the proposal assumes the consolidation of St. Michael students at the St. Paul site should funding be approved, the purpose of the meeting is for staff to inform the community of their proposed potential path forward on the future accommodation of St. Michael’s students and to receive input from the community.
