Toronto Catholic District School Board

Letter Regarding In-School Efficiencies


June 24, 2016

Dear Parents and Guardians of St. Sebastian Catholic School:


As you know, the Board of Trustees approved a number of in-school efficiencies in order to achieve a balanced budget for 2016-2017, as required by law under the Ontario Education Act.


The TCDSB Facilities and Planning Department has been conducting a review of 20 schools where cleaning and maintenance efficiencies can be found through the closure or consolidation of rooms that do not directly impact on student learning.


No decisions have been made at this stage of the review process. Members of the Facilities and Planning Department only just concluded their tours of all 20 schools identified for efficiencies this week. The next step is for a consultation phase, where you will have an opportunity to review any class relocation plans.
Ms. Maia Puccetti and members of her team are scheduled to be at the school on Monday, June 24, 2016 to assess the class room areas identified for consideration.


As valued partners in your child’s education, please rest assured that our first priority continues to be the academic achievement and wellbeing of our students within a safe and healthy learning environment.


We will provide any new information or updates as they arise. Please accept our sincere appreciation for your ongoing patience during this period and I encourage you to contact me should you have any questions.


John Shanahan
Superintendent Area 5 & 6


Cc. Trustee Barbara Poplawski
Gianna Helling, Principal
Angela Gauthier, Director of Education
Gary Poole, Associate Director of Academic Affairs
Angelo Sangiorgio, Associate Director of Planning and Facilities
Maia Puccetti, Superintendent of Facilities Services
