Greetings from Stratford Northwestern and Stratford Central.
Stratford Central is slated for renovation during the 2019-2020 school year. The 2018/19 school year will continue as usual. The project will be complete with Stratford Central re-opening in September 2020.
This project has been broken into 5 phases as follows:
|Phase 1||May 2018 – Aug 2018||Project kick-off. Funding announcement. School-based construction concept for Stratford Central to be developed based on programming needs.|
|Phase 2||Sept 2018 – May 2019||Develop a Transition Plan involving moving students/staff and program from Stratford Central. Develop a plan to transition students/staff from Stratford Central to Stratford Northwestern and/or alternative locations.|
|Phase 3||May 2019 – May 2020||Implement the Transition Plan from Phase 2.|
|Phase 4||Jan 2020 – Aug 2020||Develop a Transition Plan involving moving students/staff and program back to Stratford Central.|
|Phase 5||Sept 2020||Re-Opening of “Stratford Central 2020”.|
Questions from the public will be addressed within each phase of the project.
Public input will be solicited within each phase of the project.
2019-2020 School Year
We understand that parents and students have questions and concerns regarding moving to Stratford Northwestern and possibly alternate locations for the 2019-2020 school year.
We will be addressing these questions beginning in September 2018. We will also be soliciting input from all our stakeholders (parents, students, teachers, trustees) regarding this transition at that time.
Our committee will continue to provide updates on the Avon-Maitland District School Board website as the project proceeds through its phases.
We are excited by the programming possibilities that this project presents for our students and look forward to working with our community on enhancing educational opportunities within both schools to help develop 21st century learners in the years to come.
