Here’s an article in the Beach Metro News that gives a good overview of where things are at with local schools and funding for infrastructure.
In essence, while funding has been un-frozen from the Province to the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) for capital expenditures, the review process that was completed last year to make several significant changes to the structure of local schools (including making Secord a K-8 school) has yet to be approved by the Board. Many local schools are busting at the seams, while others are under-filled. If approved, the new plan would pave the way for new funding to build new classrooms (I mean, other than more portables) to accommodate these changes.
I’ve written before about this (about funds cut for Secord, some media attention in the Globe and Mail, and the Toronto Star, and the need for the new plan to be approved) if you’d like more background on the topic.
