About the Boundary Review
Board staff have concluded that it would be prudent to redirect an area that is currently being developed for residential purposes, that is within the Dr. Frank Hayden SS catchment area. Given that this area is currently unoccupied, the process will follow the Consultation Process Pathway #2, as identified in the HDSB Boundary Review Administrative Procedure. The boundary review will have the goal of mitigating the accommodation pressures at Dr. Frank J. Hayden Secondary School, Florence Meares Public School and Charles R. Beaudoin Public School.
Please note that occupancy in this development is projected for to begin in 2017.
