Long Term Accommodation Plan
In the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board we have 92 schools with over 32,000 students, across over 7,000 square kilometres. As responsible stewards we need to ensure that our school buildings and configurations provide optimum physical learning environments to complement the academic, social and emotional learning environment.
Our new Long Term Accommodation Plan has been developed over the course of this school year, with input from various stakeholders, including recent focus group meetings held in five different low-enrolment secondary schools.

In January-February 2015, KPR held focus group meetings with secondary students, parents and staff from our smaller high schools and their elementary feeder schools.
These consultations explored the variety of methods small schools are using to support programming for students. The groups also discussed how low enrolment secondary schools can be supported in the future.
