The evening will start off with a panel discussion about consultation. The panelists are;

  • Rob Campbell - Former Chair Ottawa Carelton Assembly of School Councils (OCASC) and former two term OCDSB Trustee.
  • Ellis Westwood - A community member who facilitates consultations  in his professional life
  • Peter Gareau - Parent member on the Eastern Accommodation Review Advisory Committee giving his perspective on that experience.
  • Sheila Perry - Community activist speaking about engaging the community to participate in the Accommodation Review consultation process.
  • A member of ACORN speaking about ways to engage low income communities in consultations.
  • Lauren Touchant has a PhD in Public Policy and will be speaking to consultation as a public policy imperative for informed and legitimate decisions.

Each panelist will speak for 5 to 7 minutes and then there will be a Q&A where participants can explore the panelists' presentations in more detail.

The rest of the evening will be an informal networking opportunity.

April 2017 start of Alta Vista-Hunt Club Boundary and Accommodation Review

An Accommodation Review for elementary and high schools in the Alta Vista/Hunt Club Area is planned to begin in April 2017 and run till Dec 2017. To start the review, District staff will make a recommendation that may include boundary changes and/or one or more school closures.

Not sure when the Accommodation Review will start. District Staff thinking presently is May, June or even as late as Sept. 2017. As soon as there is a decision on the dates I will update this post.
