Long Term Accommodation Plan 

 
The purpose of a LTAP is to provide information on school enrolment, community demographics and future accommodations for TLDSB. This plan will allow for recommendations related to the school board and its assets including land acquisition and disposition, new school construction, additions, boundary reviews, school closure reviews and other matters related to student accommodation.
 

In addition to student accommodation, this plan summarizes facility conditions and renewal and/or renovation projects. The LTAP strives to be consistent with Ministry of Education policies, practices, and guidelines as well as with the Board’s mission, vision, strategic plan, and policies. The aim is to ensure students have access to facilities which offer healthy, safe, and accommodating spaces while providing a quality learning environment.

The LTAP will be updated annually and provide a picture of the Board’s accommodation priorities each year. Ministry funding, initiatives, and projects may impact the plan. Some portions of the LTAP provide data based collected by Statistics Canada and the census data is typically updated every four years, following a country wide numeration process. As such, this plan includes the most current data provided by their resources available at www.statcan.gc.ca.

Public Sector Salary Disclosure

Ontario’s Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act requires that publicly funded organizations disclose the names, positions, salaries and taxable benefits of public sector employees who were paid a salary of $100,000 or more in the previous year. Salary records for these employees in the public education sector may be accessed on the Ontario government website.

Pupil Accommodation Review

TLDSB is responsible for providing our students with the best possible educational experience. The cost to maintain spaces that aren’t being used and reduced staffing resulting from lower enrolment may make it difficult to support a complete range of programs in each school building. A school accommodation strategy, our Pupil Accommodation Long Term Plan, has been developed to ensure we are able to support high-quality educational programming, student achievement, and well-being.

There are a number of strategies school boards use to manage the increasing number of unused spaces in schools. These strategies could include:

  • Inviting community partners to review opportunities for partnerships in schools on a cost-recovery basis. This is a step required by school boards to explore these types of partnership opportunities.
  • Exploring the possibility of boundary changes to balance enrolment across a number of schools. If there is a proposed boundary change, parents will be notified and information sessions will be held.
  • Considering the possibility of school closure or consolidation. Consolidation is the combination of the student populations of two or more schools into an existing or new structure.

TLDSB is committed to community engagement. All members of the school community will be provided with information and opportunity for input when their school is being considered for a Pupil Accommodation Review (PAR).

The Board of Trustees must decide which strategy would best support the changing circumstances of its school. It is the Board’s responsibility to ensure that the educational needs of their students are met before other options such as facility partnerships are considered.

Pupil Accommodation Review Process

There are several steps in the Pupil Accommodation Review Process:

  • Step 1: Board approval of the five-year Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) Pupil Accommodation Long Term Plan.
  • Step 2: Facility partnership opportunities offered and explored.
  • Step 3: Presentation to the Board of Trustees of a report from TLDSB administration including specific enrolment, program and accommodation issues, options explored, and recommendations.
  • Step 4: Board of Trustees authorizes a Pupil Accommodation Review (PAR) on the administrative report and its recommendations.
  • Step 5: The School community is notified that a PAR will take place.
  • Step 6: PAR begins and includes public consultation.
  • Step 7: A final administrative report and recommendations are presented to the Board of Trustees. This report will include community feedback.
  • Step 8: The public is invited to provide feedback by bringing delegations to the Board of Trustees.
  • Step 9: A final decision is made by the Board of Trustees.
  • Step 10: A transition process is developed and implemented with school communities for the relocation of students if a decision is made to close, consolidate, or amalgamate schools.

Proposed Pupil Accommodation Reviews

There are no proposed accommodation reviews in the 2020-2021 TLDSB Pupil Accommodation Long Term Plan. The Board will continue to monitor actual enrolments against projected enrolments.

Community Partners

TLDSB recognizes and supports the concept of collaborative partnerships for the sharing of facilities between publicly funded community organizations. If you are interested in pursuing a partnership with TLDSB in one or more of our schools, please email [email protected] or call 1-888-526-5552.

2021 School Ventilation Upgrades

TLDSB-Ventilation-Upgrades-image-1024x508In April, the Government of Canada announced plans to invest $525.2 million towards projects through the COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream-Education Related Projects (CVRIS-EDU), as part of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP). In addition, the Government of Ontario confirmed its contribution of more than $131.4 million to projects across Ontario.

The funding includes:

  • Almost $450 million for HVAC upgrades and improvements to air quality
  • Up to $65 million to support physical distancing for students and staff
  • Up to $60 million will be invested in technology to help facilitate remote learning
  • Up to $80 million will go towards supporting health and safety initiatives, such as installing hand washing stations or touchless faucets and soap dispensers.

Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) was successful in securing $7,485,000 in funding related to the parameters above. Canada and Ontario’s deadline for completing projects is December 31, 2021.

Approximately 44 line items or individual requests were approved of the nearly 200 that were requested and summarized below.

  • Bottle filling stations – 12 locations.
  • Infrared water faucets c.w. new stainless sinks where required – 12 locations.
  • Ventilation improvements (new air handling units, ductwork), air conditioning where designated, and new windows – 31 locations
  • Portable replacement – 1 location.

Other 2021 Ventilation Upgrades

Air exchange

We are ensuring air is being exchanged, and fresh air is entering occupied spaces. Building fresh air was increased where possible through building automation systems to maximize ventilation rates. These increases were confirmed by reviewing damper positioning visually.

TLDSB instituted “air flushes” of all spaces that receive mechanical ventilation before occupants enter the buildings. Done daily by having mechanical systems operate in ‘occupied’ mode starting at 6 a.m. before students enter the building. The ‘occupied’ mode remains in effect until 11:59 p.m.

HEPA filter

Portable HEPA filter units are provided in accordance with the Ministry’s direction, which includes schools without mechanical ventilation and in Kindergarten spaces regardless of the ventilation system in place.

Duct sealing

Several schools had duct sealing take place in ventilation systems. Aerosolized duct sealing is designed to eliminate air leakage from ductwork, resulting in better HVAC efficiency, increased ventilation, and improved filtration. Buildings eligible for duct sealing can potentially see an average increased airflow of 25 to 45 per cent.

Ventilation Frequently Asked Questions

What steps did TLDSB take in the 2020-2021 school year?

  • Mechanical ventilation installations and upgrades have been or are being implemented – please see the link above.
  • MERV 13 filters were installed in all existing and any new ventilation systems to ensure a higher particulate removal rate and increased frequency of filter changes.
  • Duct sealing took place at eight locations to increase (average of 20 per cent) ventilation rates to spaces receiving supplied air.

What is TLDSB doing now?

  • TLDSB Facility Services will continue to ensure that air is being exchanged, and fresh air is entering occupied spaces. Building fresh air was increased where possible through building automation systems to maximize ventilation rates.
  • “Air flushes” of all spaces will take place before occupants re-entering buildings. This will take place daily by having mechanical systems operate in “occupied” mode, which provides ventilation to the building, starting at 6 a.m. before students and staff enter the building. Systems will continue to operate in this mode throughout the day.
  • Ongoing quarterly (or more frequently if required) filter change-outs will continue.
  • Completion of the 30 ventilation projects being funded through the CVRIS program will take place.
  • An additional 10 locations will receive duct sealing with an average of 20 per cent increase in ventilation rates expected.
  • Portable HEPA filter units provided in accordance with the Ministry’s direction and will be maintained at or better than the manufacturer’s instructions. An appropriate quantity of spare filters are available to replace a unit due to failure.
