Waterloo Region, ON – On October 30, 2019 a WCDSB staff report recommending a school boundary review involving St. John CESHoly Rosary CESOur Lady of Lourdes CES and St. Nicholas CES – with the purpose of reducing enrolment pressure at St. John – was approved by the Board of Trustees.

The Boundary Review Process is designed to ensure that the public has opportunity to comment on the proposed boundary solution, the impact on affected students has been considered, and that decisions are based on an efficient and equitable use of system resources.

The Boundary Review Committee’s final report will be presented to the Board of Trustees on Monday, March 23, 2020. Stakeholders will have opportunities to present their views to the Board at that meeting and at a subsequent meeting on Monday, April 6, 2020.
