Long Term Accommodation Plan
In the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board we have 92 schools with over 32,000 students, across over 7,000 square kilometres. As responsible stewards we need to ensure that our school buildings and configurations provide optimum physical learning environments to complement the academic, social and emotional learning environment.
Our new Long Term Accommodation Plan has been developed over the course of this school year, with input from various stakeholders, including recent focus group meetings held in five different low-enrolment secondary schools.
Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board is currently reviewing our corporate website with a view to improving the overall experience for students, parents, staff and community members who visit our site. We invite you to take a minute to complete a short survey about your visit(s) to our website.Please click here to complete our website survey

How can we take care of our mental health? KPR students, staff & parents sent us great suggestions for Mental Health Week in May, such as:
Ontario has released an updated Health and Physical Education curriculum to give students accurate information that will help keep them safe and healthy.
The province is also providing parents with resources to help them understand and participate in what will be taught to their children.
Labour Negotiations – 2015
We have dedicated this area to providing updates to our parents and community members on the status of provincial and local labour negotiations with our employees.
In March 2015, the province released new Pupil Accommodation Review Guidelines for school boards to follow when completing school reviews. KPR updated its policy to reflect the provincial requirements, and brought the new, draft policy to the Resource Committee in June.
The Board is now seeking the community’s comments on draft Policy BA-1.2, Pupil Accommodation Review: School Closure/ Consolidation, before considering it for approval. Comments from students, parents, guardians, staff, school councils and community members are welcome until 4 p.m. on Monday, September 14.
At the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board, every four years we engage in a strategic planning process to establish the priorities that focus our efforts on student achievement and success.
As we begin the process for developing our 2015-2018 Strategic Plan, we are asking all of our stakeholders - students, staff, parents and community members - for their involvement in shaping our future direction.
In January-February 2015, KPR held focus group meetings with secondary students, parents and staff from our smaller high schools and their elementary feeder schools.
These consultations explored the variety of methods small schools are using to support programming for students. The groups also discussed how low enrolment secondary schools can be supported in the future.
