“School closings in Ontario: New data on the number of schools to be closed

People for Education has conducted a study of accommodation reviews across Ontario and produced an interactive map of schools to be closed in the province’s 72 school boards.

People for Education’s analysis shows that, of the 34 school boards with school closings planned:

  • school board staff have recommended that 121 schools close—most of them between June 2017 and June 2020;
  • as of April 30, 2017, trustees have voted to close 58 of the recommended schools;
  • school board votes are pending for a further 52 of the schools that staff have recommended to close;
  • there are approximately 33,000 students in schools recommended to close; and
  • 25 new schools are proposed; most consolidating student populations from two or more closing schools.

Read the report.
