The Halton District School Board continuously strives to maintain and improve our school facilities to provide a learning environment that supports the well-being of students and staff and accommodates the use of schools by the greater community.
This page provides information on current school renewal capital projects and new construction as well as outdoor play and learning projects.
The Elementary Schools and Secondary Schools tabs on this page highlight work being done at existing HDSB schools. The New Schools & Additions tab includes new school construction or major additions and renovations taking place. Work in existing schools is generally completed in 12 months, however larger, more complex projects can take upwards of 24 months. Planning, approvals and the construction of new schools can take two to four years. The actual construction time may be 18 months for elementary schools and 24 months for secondary schools.
For new school construction, major additions and renovations, you’ll see a graphic that illustrates the steps required to complete these projects.
A circle will indicate where we are as we transition through these steps. As these types of projects are impacted by market conditions and Ministry of Education and municipal approvals, you may see that we move back and forth through these stages as required. Projects are funded from a variety of sources including the Ministry of Education School Renewal Grant, Capital Priorities Funding Grant and HDSB allocations through Close the Gap and School Generated Funds.
Please note that the content on this page is updated in the fall and spring.
