School closure public meetings begin

Public consultation for the five schools being considered for closure began on October 25 and continues until November 9. Five schools will take part in the public consultation meetings:

  • Carleton Elementary;
  • Champlain Heights Annex;
  • Macdonald Elementary;
  • McBride Annex; and
  • Queen Alexandra Elementary

    Each school will have two public meetings. Parents and members of the community are encouraged to offer thoughts, ask questions and provide feedback with respect to the possibility of school closures.

For a complete list of the dates and locations of the meetings, please see the public consultation meeting schedule. Beside each school we've listed the translators available at each meeting and a link to storyboards that will be displayed.

Please visit our school closure webpages for an overview of the school closure process or read through the frequently asked questions.
