Impacted Schools Decision


Feb. 14, 2017 | Important Changes to Student Population at John Ware School (pdf)



Options for Use of Learning Space


In the impacted school scenarios we presented for feedback in October 2016, it was proposed that students from the communities of Woodlands and Woodbine would move from Woodman School to John Ware School. The feedback we received about this proposal expressed a concern that John Ware School might be overcrowded with the addition of these students. We also heard concerns from Harold Panabaker School families about low enrolment in the regular program at the school.


On January 19 we met with parents of students from the communities of Woodbine and Woodlands and presented two new options to consider instead of the original scenario proposed in October. See January 19 presentation slides.


People also shared their thoughts and ideas about these options by completing an online survey, which closed January 28, 2017.


See January 11, 2017 letter to parents.



Schools Impacted by New School Openings


Currently, a number of schools in Area V are over or nearing capacity, while others have capped their enrolment or are under capacity. Planning is underway to make changes in the best interests of all students.


There will be opportunities for you to share your thoughts and perspectives on possible scenarios involving our school community.


Please visit Schools Impacted by New School Openings in the CBE website.
