About the Boundary Review
Board staff have concluded that it would be prudent to assign elementary students in the Evergreen Community, an area that is currently being developed for residential purposes. The Evergreen community located north of Dundas Street between Appleby Line and Tremaine Road is anticipated to receive secondary plan approval this year, at which time a development of approximately 906 units will likely proceed. It is prudent to assign a school to this area prior to the sale and construction of housing. Secondary students in this area are directed to M.M. Robinson HS, but there are no schools assigned for elementary school students.
There are two developments located within the Alton Village Public School boundary located at:
- 4853 Thomas Alton Blvd. An OMB settlement agreement has been approved for 601 units (21 medium-density units and 580 high-density units).
- 4880 Valera Road. A zoning application has been received from the City of Burlington for 414 units (70 medium-density units and 344 high-density units).
The Thomas Alton and Valera Road boundary review will have the goal of mitigating the accommodation pressures at Alton Village Public School, prior to the sale/construction of these new units in the catchment. Current elementary students will not be impacted. Secondary students in the Thomas Alton Blvd. and Valera Road developments will attend Dr. Frank J. Hayden for English program or M.M. Robinson for Extended French or French Immersion program.
Given that these areas are currently unoccupied, the process will follow the Consultation Process Pathway #2, as identified in the HDSB Boundary Review Administrative Procedure.
