School Closures

Carleton Elementary

At the June 15, 2022 Facilities Planning Committee the ‘Proposed Catchment Boundary Adjustments – Carleton Elementary Catchment’ was presented which initiated the process to reduce the size of the existing Carleton catchment and increase the size of the existing catchments of Cunningham, Weir, and MacCorkindale elementary schools. On January 30, 2023, the Board approved the proposed catchment boundary adjustments. If Carleton is permanently closed, the remaining catchment, in which there are no residences, will be dissolved and consolidated with the Cunningham elementary catchment.
