Invitation to Attend Facility Partnership Meeting
Conseil Scolaire de district catholique des Aurores boréales, Lakehead District School Board and Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board (the Boards) invite interested parties to a public meeting where information will be presented pertaining to facilities identified by the boards as having the potential to allow for facility-sharing partnerships in sites identified as having underutilized space.
The Boards recognize that cooperative and collaborative relationships between school boards and community organizations are part of the foundation of a strong, vibrant and sustainable publicly-funded education system. Offering space in schools to partners can strengthen the role of schools in communities, provide a place for programs, and facilitate the coordination of, and improve access to services for students and the wider community.
Background: In support of the Ministry of Education’s Community Planning and
Partnerships initiative, our boards continuously explore opportunities to
share facilities with community partners in order to optimize the use of public
assets owned by the boards, to the benefit of boards, students and the
community. These partnerships, administered on a cost-recovery basis and
through formal agreements, have the potential to reduce facility-operating
costs, improve services and supports available to students and strengthen
relationships between school boards and community partners.
