Planned Renovations – recording of June 10 meeting

Planned Renovations – recording of June 10 meeting
Posted on 06/16/2021

School Council hosted a virtual meeting on Thursday, June 10 regarding the planned renovations of our school by the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB). The renovations are scheduled to start this July, and are expected to be completed by 2024.

The objectives of the meeting were to:

  1. learn the details of the planned renovations;
  2. clarify why these plans fail to address accessibility and safety;
  3. understand the logic of doing this now (with its long duration, disruption and expense) when the building needs broader replacement; and
  4. how AVPS is currently being prioritized within the OCDSB for building replacement or major renovations.

OCDSB Superintendent, Dorothy Baker, and Trustee, Chris Ellis, attended along with representatives from the OCDSB’s departments of Facilities (Daniel Bradley) and Planning (Karyn Ostafichuk).

A recording of this meeting can be viewed here.

Next steps

A small group of concerned parents/guardians have already assembled and are keen to advocate for appropriate long-term decisions in the best interest of our school.

School Council continues to seek parents and community members who are interested in collaborating to work with the OCDSB and provide feedback to the Ministry of Education regarding the planned classroom renovations. A variety of skills will be needed to address this issue.
