The proposal for Secondary School Gifted Programming
Report 18-041, Secondary Gifted Geographic Model Transition & Consultation Plan
Summary: Proposed for implementation for the 2019-2020 school year (students going to Gr 9 in September 2019 and later)
Board staff are proposing to go out to consultation for the following proposal with the intent of getting feedback (the Consultation Plan is the last page):
Going from 4 secondary gifted schools (Lisgar, Glebe, Merivale, Bell) to 2 (Lisgar, Bell).
The families with the following "home" secondary schools will have their designated gifted school changed from Lisgar, Glebe, Merivale (a central location) to Bell HS (identified by the board as "Far West"): Woodroffe, Merivale, Nepean, Osgoode High Schools
The proposed Consultation plan public direct meetings appear (at first glance) to focus on Bell/Lisgar but not necessarily Glebe, Merivale, Elementary feeder schools whose children may be affected
It appears that students already in high school by Aug 2019 would not be moved
