BANCROFT PUBLIC SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK
Introduction
On October 31, 2006, the Ministry of Education released the Pupil Accommodation Guidelines
(previously referred to as school closure guidelines). The guidelines direct Ontario school boards
on the pupil accommodation review process to be undertaken to determine the future of a
particular school or group of schools. In response to these guidelines the Hastings Prince
Edward School Board revised Policy A-3 Student Enrolment/School Capacity (September 22,
2007) to ensure compliance with the expectations and intent of this guideline.
As part of the accommodation review process, a generic School Valuation Framework is
required to assess each of the following considerations for each school or group of schools
being reviewed:
•
Value to the student
•
Value to the school board
•
Value to the community
•
Value to the local economy
The review process will be led by the Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) appointed by
the Board and includes members from the school community and the broader community. The
Accommodation Review Committee may customize the School Valuation Framework to consider
additional factors appropriate to the group of schools (the Accommodation Review Area) under
review.
The North Hastings Area Review Committee
All schools in the North Hastings School Group are included in the North Hastings
Accommodation Review:
•
Bancroft Public School
•
Bird’s Creek Public School
•
Coe Hill School
•
Hermon Public School
•
Maynooth Public School
•
North Hastings Senior Elementary School
•

Would consolidation, closure or program relocation provide students with access to varied
and/or better programs? Closure – No. Program relocation would place the students
in a better location for learning and playing/physical activities.
Would consolidation, closure or program relocation reduce the probability that the students
would be in classes with two or more grades? N/A
Would consolidation, closure or program relocation provide students with access to varied
and/or better extra curricular programs? Program relocation to better gym and

provide the students with access to varied and better extra curricular programs.
Summary: - What is the value of the school to the student?
The value lies in the programs, activities within the schools, and its geographical

Does the school have historic value in the broader community?
Comments: BPS is the original public school/ oldest in the area still in existence
and in use.
Y
If the school were to remain open, how/what programs could the school attract?
Mountain biking
What would the community lose if the school were to close?
Very little. Students would be better serviced with the possibilities that can be made with
restructuring other present facilities. There would be a loss of a 5 stop elevator and a centrally
located facility that where the people can make use of public facilities.

Considerations:
How would a school closure impact the social fabric of the community in the long term?
A re-location would have minimal impact to the social fabric of the community as students will
remain in the community. The loss is in our school name and identity.
What is the role of parents in keeping the school open?
Parents are supportive of a re-location of the school community.
-
What is the school council’s view of the school and its role/commitment to keeping the
school open? School council is supportive of a re-location to a better facility.
-
What type of activities have parents/parent council been involved in to support the school
in the past (i.e. fundraising)? P.E.A.C.E. (playground equipment), Book Fairs, Special Food
Days, Christmas Fundraising, Literacy Night, Classroom volunteers, Pediculosis team, Out
of Learning excursions.
What is the potential for increased community use of the school? If possible, provide details.
The suggestion is to sell the building to the local municipality for a new town office. (e.g. Public
Library, community facilities, municipal offices, recreational facilities for the children)
Summary: - What is the value of the school to the community?
The location of the property is central in town. The school is currently located on property that
would be considered prime real estate.

community in the position of attracting young doctors, other professionals and
young families with children.
Y
Does the presence of the school affect real estate values?

Considerations:
What would be the effect of consolidation, closure or program relocation on the local economy:
diversification, sustainability of employment opportunities, effect on local businesses?
A relocation would not affect the businesses. A closure would be devastating. A consolidation
would not have an effect on the community businesses.
Are there spin-off economic benefits of having the school? The majority of the staff live in the
community in which they work. By living in the community in which you work, you support the
local community.

What would happen to these spin-offs if there was consolidation, closure or program relocation?
None as staff would still live within the community.
What would be the impact of consolidation closure or program relocation on the employment
situation of school staff?
With consolidation – could see reductions in services that are duplicated.
With program relocation – potential for enhanced programming.
Summary: - What is the value of the school to the local economy?
Within this town, HPEDSB is a corporation and a very large employer that offers excellent
salaries to the 24 employees at Bancroft P.S. which in turn supports the local economy.
Having a school in the community has the potential of attracting young doctors and other
professionals to serve families in the community.

BIRD’S CREEK PUBLIC SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK Introduction
On October 31, 2006, the Ministry of Education released the Pupil Accommodation Guidelines
(previously referred to as school closure guidelines). The guidelines direct Ontario school boards
on the pupil accommodation review process to be undertaken to determine the future of a
particular school or group of schools. In response to these guidelines the Hastings Prince
Edward School Board revised Policy A-3 Student Enrolment/School Capacity (September 22,
2007) to ensure compliance with the expectations and intent of this guideline.
As part of the accommodation review process, a generic School Valuation Framework is
required to assess each of the following considerations for each school or group of schools
being reviewed:
•
Value to the student
•
Value to the school board
•
Value to the community
•
Value to the local economy
The review process will be led by the Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) appointed by
the Board and includes members from the school community and the broader community. The
Accommodation Review Committee may customize the School Valuation Framework to consider
additional factors appropriate to the group of schools (the Accommodation Review Area) under
review.
The North Hastings Area Review Committee
All schools in the North Hastings School Group are included in the North Hastings
Accommodation Review:
•
Bancroft Public School
•
Bird’s Creek Public School
•
Coe Hill School
•
Hermon Public School
•
Maynooth Public School

Value of the School to the Student
The students of Bird’s Creek Public School are well served by this school and it is a valuable
asset for their education. The school currently provides the students with a range of programs
to ensure an appropriate education for the students.
The facility is excellent, providing a large playground area (5.0 acres, one of the largest in the
area) that is covered by mostly grass, with some tarmac area, and provides 2 baseball and 3
soccer fields as well as a basketball court and playground area equipped with swings and
suitable play structures (play structure is new). The school also has an excellent gymnasium
with suspended hardwood floors and a good stage for school presentations. There are also two
change rooms to go along with the well equipped gymnasium. The school is also a “Safe
School” with locks and a buzzer system that has been newly installed. It is one of the newest
school buildings in North Hastings and is very well maintained..
The school has nice classrooms that are well equipped for student learning and the JK/SK area
is large and has its own washrooms suited for small children. The school has a well stocked
library which houses a large quantity of books due to such programs as Silver Birch and Blue
Spruce. As well the Library is home to the schools new computer resource lab that contains
approximately 24 new computers.
Bird’s Creek Public School also provides programs for students at risk by providing educational
assistants that work directly with students, and along with the teachers, to support these
students in becoming successful in their academic endeavours. The school also links with North
Hastings High School to provide placements for Co-op students, many of which are former
Bird’s Creek students returning to the school where they began their education. The school
also regularly participates in many extra curricular activities. These include such things as
Interschool Athletic events, Celebration of Dance, Chess, Public Speaking contests, Science Fair,
Chess Tournaments Earthcare, Terry Fox Run, Jump Rope for Heart, World Vision, Legion
Remembrance Day Services, Fundraising events and Special Arts programs such a painting
classes and Music Monday.
The children of the Bird’s Creek area are very fortunate to have such a great school. The
children of the area really value this school and have great pride in attending Bird’s Creek Public
School. Many parents also value the school and the school has made the Bird’s Creek area a
very desirable location for families with young children.
The school is also very lucky to have great community support. Christmas concerts held in the
gymnasium are always filled to capacity with family and community members. Track meets and
play days always include numerous volunteers. The school’s annual Fun Fair and Magazine
Sales are a resounding success due to the many community members which are volunteers and
monetary supporters for the school. Contributions from the community have given the school
new playground equipment and play structure as well as sports equipment.
Due to these contributions the school also has two new Elmo projectors, students are able to
attend arts performances, programs such as Silver Birch and Blue Spruce are supported and
every student is able to go on a year-end school trip.

BIRD’S CREEK PUBLIC SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK Although consolidation may be able to provide students with access to some additional
specialized programs, it may also increase the likelihood that students may experience split
grades as that is currently not the case at Bird’s Creek. Consolidation or closure of other
schools in the area, such as North Hastings Senior Elementary being consolidated with the
North Hastings High School may result in some families finding the school system in North
Hastings undesirable and cause them to leave the area or search out other options for the
education of their children.
Bird’s Creek Public School is of great value to its students and their families. It is an excellent
school and is an important part of the community.

Summary: - What is the value of the school to the school board?
Bird’s Creek P.S. is a feeder school to North Hastings Senior elementary School. It was built in
1951. A gymnasium, office, staffroom, large entrance/music room and an additional classroom
were added in 1990. There are 7 classrooms each containing a single grade. There are two
large public washrooms each containing a handicapped cubicle. The student washrooms have
change facilities and showers. There is also a lift bed for handicapped children that need to be
raised to be diapered. A 24 unit computer lab has been added in the past 3 years. One
classroom underwent renovations this summer. The boiler system was replaced and all lights
retrofitted in the past five years. A UV light and chlorinator were installed in the past couple of
years. A ‘buzz in’ security system is in place. The building is in excellent condition and requires
only regular, ongoing maintenance.
The school ground is about 4 acres and is in excellent shape. It requires some fence
reparations. It contains a new play structure, 3 soccer fields, 3 ball diamonds, a basketball
court, 2 tether ball courts, picnic tables, shaded areas, and a paved area for skipping and other
related activities.
We are at 80% capacity although all classrooms are filled or almost filled according to the caps
set by the Ministry of Education. All program requirements are met or exceeded by the existing
facilities. Projected utilization is expected to stay stable in the upcoming years.
Bird’s Creek is a developing area. Large retail businesses are choosing to locate in this school
district. A new development has been cleared and housing lots are being sold. New homes are
constantly being constructed. Real estate values keep climbing in this desired area.
In conclusion, Bird’s Creek P.S. is a modern facility that is in excellent condition and meets the
needs of all students. It is equipped to serve the needs of students for years to come.

If the school were to remain open, how/what programs could the school attract? More arts
programming. It could advertise community use of space.
What would the community lose if the school were to close? Residents have bought homes in
the community so that their children can attend Bird’s Creek School. Closure would cause
people not to locate here if they had to send their children to a grade 7 to 12 school. Enrolment
would be adversely affected by changes. People might homeschool, transfer to the Catholic
Board or relocate. The community is a different place when there are lots of kids around. There
would be no working families left. We would have difficulty attracting doctors. To increase
community use of schools, we could advertise availability of space with costs at local rental
levels.

BIRD’S CREEK PUBLIC SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK Considerations:
What would be the effect of consolidation, closure or program relocation on the local economy:
diversification, sustainability of employment opportunities, effect on local businesses?
Are there spin-off economic benefits of having the school? What would happen to these spinoffs if there was consolidation, closure or program relocation?
What would be the impact of consolidation closure or program relocation on the employment
situation of school staff?
Summary: - What is the value of the school to the local economy?
The value of Bird’s Creek Public School to the local economy is regarded as very important.
The school is a key attraction to the municipality in drawing and keeping investment. As the
school is highly regarded by young families, the local community has thrived in housing
developments. With expanding development comes further investment in land as well as in
business start ups and expansions.
The school is at the top of the list for consideration by families when choosing an area to
purchase a new home. According to local real estate agents, the Bird’s Creek School area is
very popular for housing purchases. Along with the attraction come the increase in property
values and this remains true as it has for the past many years. Housing sales and purchases
have increased each year and continue to rise.
Local businesses and the school benefit by working together. There is a partnership that works
in two ways. First, businesses offer additional funding for the school and parent council to offer
programs as well as teacher/students needs not normally provided by board funding. Secondly,
it provides local businesses the opportunity for community involvement, networking and
advertising.
The realistic potential for growth in the Bird’s Creek area appears to be very positive. There are
new housing starts as well as business growth in new ventures and in expansion. This
expansion provides a good probability for continued enrolment and a possible increase in
enrolment in the coming years.
As there are no immediate plans for closure of Bird’s Creek, our ARC committee would like to
address the plan for the entire North Hastings school community. One major concern to
members of our team is the transfer of students from the Senior Elementary school (grades 7 &
8) to the High School. This move would have a drastic and negative effect on not only the
students but teaching staff, families, businesses and the school board itself. There is negative
talk regarding this move among parents which have them wondering if they will leave the area
to find a better school system, to starting home schooling or enrolling in the local Catholic
School. If this happens there will be a further decline to enrollment as well as a lack of interest
in the public school system on a whole and an economic down turn to the entire community of
North Hastings.

Speaking for Bird’s Creek ARC
Hello, I am Christine Walker a Community Representative for Bird’s Creek Public School. Our
team paired off to research and answer the very important questions posed to all of us in the
Valuation Framework. The following is the result of our combined efforts.
Welcome to Bird’s Creek Public School!
Bird’s Creek Public School is a feeder school to North Hastings Senior Elementary School. It was
built in 1951 on 5 acres of land. There are 145 students currently enrolled making Bird’s Creek
Public School’s Current Utilization 80.1% The school is one of the newest school buildings in
North Hastings and is very well maintained.
In 1990, a gym, office, staff room, entrance/multipurpose room and an additional classroom
were added. One classroom underwent renovations this summer. The school has nice
classrooms that are equipped for student learning. The JK/SK classroom is large and has its
own washroom suited for small children. Presently there are 7 classrooms each containing a
single grade. The school’s gymnasium is excellent with suspended hardwood floors and good
stage for school presentations. The school library is well stocked with a new computer
resource lab that contains 28 new computers. The school has two large public washrooms each
containing a handicapped cubicle. The student washrooms have change facilities, showers and
a lift bed for the care of handicapped children. Bird’s Creek Public School is a “Safe School”
with locks and a newly installed buzzer system. Other improvements in the last 5 years include
replacement of the boiler system, retrofitting of all lights, a UV light and chlorinator. The
building is in excellent condition requiring only regular, ongoing maintenance.
Outside, the school grounds are in excellent condition as well and contain a new play structure,
swings, 3 soccer fields, 3 ball diamonds, a basketball court, 2 tether ball courts, 3 picnic tables,
shaded areas and a paved area for skipping or other related activities.
The student’s of Bird’s Creek Public School are well served by this school and it is a valuable
asset for their education. The school currently provides the students with a range of programs
to ensure an appropriate education for the students.
Revised November 30, 2008
HPEDSB
BIRD’S CREEK PUBLIC SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK This is proven by the Education Quality and Accountability Office’s testing results which show
Bird’s Creek students scoring well above both provincial and board results in all areas. When
funding allows, Bird’s Creek Public School also offers programs for students at risk, providing
educational assistants that work directly with students, and along with the teachers, to support
these students in becoming successful in their academic endeavours. We are very proud of our
students and teachers.
Bird’s Creek Public School participates in many extra-curricular activities. These include such
things as Interschool Athletic events, Celebration of Dance, Chess Club, Chess Tournaments,
Public Speaking contests, Science Fair, EarthCare, Terry Fox Run, Jump Rope for Heart, World
Vision, the Legion Remembrance Day Services, Fundraising events, Art Contests and Special
Arts programs such as painting classes and Music Monday. The school also links with North
Hastings High School to provide placements for Co-op students, many of which are former
Bird’s Creek students returning to the school where they began their education. Further, Bird’s
Creek Public School offers another venue for North Hastings High School students to earn their
mandatory volunteer hours.
Bird’s Creek Public School offers a safe nurturing environment for its students. The children of
the Bird’s Creek area are very fortunate to have such a great school. The children of the area
really value this school and have great pride in attending Bird’s Creek Public School. Likewise,
the parents value the school and the school has made the Bird’s Creek area a very desirable
location for families with young children.
Bird’s Creek Public School is one of the mainstays of our local economy. It provides
employment directly for 15 people and indirectly for many more. The school is also a wonderful
forum for local businesses to network, advertise and show their community spirit. The school’s
superb reputation continues to attract families, which in turn attracts new businesses that
provide more jobs in the Bird’s Creek area.
Bird’s Creek Public School is very lucky to have great community support. The school is within
walking distance to the community skating rink. Christmas concerts held in the gymnasium are
always filled to capacity with family and community members. Track meets and play days
always include numerous volunteers. Parents and local businesses donate time and food to
provide nutritious snacks for the students. Bird’s Creek Public School and its students are
fortunate to have a volunteer teacher librarian. The school’s annual Fun Fair and Magazine
Sales are a resounding success due to the many community members who are volunteers as
well as monetary supporters. Contributions from the community and local businesses have
given the school new playground equipment, a play structure, sports equipment and 2 new
Elmo projectors. These monies enable students to participate in Silver Birch and Blue Spruce
programs where students read books and vote on their favorites. Also due to these
contributions every student is able to attend arts performances and go on a year end field trip.
Even though Bird’s Creek Public School is a wonderful school it is not without its problems and
wish list.
Revised November 30, 2008
HPEDSB
BIRD’S CREEK PUBLIC SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK Although the school is at 80.1% capacity, all the classrooms are filled according to the caps set
by the Ministry of Education. In this situation, how is there room for growth? Bird’s Creek
Public School is in excellent condition, however, the perimeter fence is in need of minor repair
and a larger gate is needed to enable handicapped people to enter the playground when the
school is closed. Also the parking lot needs improvement to alleviate the congestion, which
presently is a great safety concern, when the children arrive and depart in school buses and
cars. The schools problems are few, but its wish list is a little longer. Further improvements
would include: a quiet private space for speech/language instruction, testing and service
provider visits, a sound and lighting system for the stage and an upgraded kitchen for food
preparation,
Although consolidation may provide students with access to some additional specialized
programs, it may also increase the likelihood that students may experience split grades which is
currently not the case at Bird’s Creek Public School. Consolidation or closure of other schools in
the area, such as North Hastings Senior Elementary being consolidated with North Hastings
High School, may result in some families finding the school system in North Hastings
undesirable. causing them to leave the area or search out other options. Some options that
have been voiced are home schooling, enrollment in the Catholic school and starting a separate
school. The concern is that this consolidation scenario will be detrimental to the children.
Some of the concerns are that there may be an increase in violence, smoking, truancy, dropout
rate, pregnancy, alcohol abuse and drug abuse. We would like to recommend having a
presentation by a student and/or a video tour of a grade 7 - 12 school. This may allay some
of these concerns.
To end on a positive note, Bird’s Creek Public School is an integral part of our community and
local economy. This school is also an asset to the school board. This facility is in excellent
condition meeting the needs of all students and is equipped to serve the needs of students for
years to come. But most importantly, Bird’s Creek Public School is of great value to its
students.
Finally, we would like to invite you to tour Bird’s Creek Public School on September 24 at 5:30.
Thank you very much.

Introduction
On October 31, 2006, the Ministry of Education released the Pupil Accommodation Guidelines
(previously referred to as school closure guidelines). The guidelines direct Ontario school boards
on the pupil accommodation review process to be undertaken to determine the future of a
particular school or group of schools. In response to these guidelines the Hastings Prince
Edward School Board revised Policy A-3 Student Enrolment/School Capacity (September 22,
2007) to ensure compliance with the expectations and intent of this guideline.
As part of the accommodation review process, a generic School Valuation Framework is
required to assess each of the following considerations for each school or group of schools
being reviewed:
•
Value to the student
•
Value to the school board
•
Value to the community
•
Value to the local economy
The review process will be led by the Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) appointed by
the Board and includes members from the school community and the broader community. The
Accommodation Review Committee may customize the School Valuation Framework to consider
additional factors appropriate to the group of schools (the Accommodation Review Area) under
review.

Summary: - What is the value of the school to the student?
Our school helps our children maintain a sense of community, identity and connection to one
and other. Our school is deeply imbedded in our community and is therefore an extension of
our student’s social and familial life. Although closure or consolidation may provide our
students with varied or expanded educational opportunities, the implications of integration into
a larger school setting would have a negative impact on the social and familial aspects that our
school provides to our children.

Considerations:
What is the relationship of the school to its family of schools?
Our school is twinned with Bancroft Public School for administration purposes and for ‘specialty’
programs such as extended French instruction. We use the same buses as some of the other
schools, which results in an indirect partnership for cost saving/sharing. Staff from our school
partner with staff from other schools for staff development and training purposes.

There are several initiatives in progress right now, which could have a positive impact on the
potential for growth in our area over the next several years with others in the early discussion
stages. The current projects include the Wollaston Township Downtown Revitalization Project,
the 110 Unit subdivision in the development stages in Limerick Township, and the relatively low
housing prices in our area which are attractive to families seeking to leave the city to raise their
children in a country environment.

the Coe Hill Fairgrounds however special permission and fee for use is required.
Yes
Page 19 of 24 Revised October 1/08 HPEDSB
COE HILL SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK 3.0 Value to the Community
What other facilities/playing fields in the vicinity are used by community groups? The legion is
also available to host some indoor events for the community however space is limited. The Coe
Hill Agricultural Society Fairgrounds are also in town however special permits, insurance and
use fees are required to use the grounds. There is also a Township maintained public beach on
Wollaston Lake however; there are no recreational facilities or field areas at the site.
Is the school facility used to meet community and social service needs (i.e. child
care, etc.)? If yes, provide details.
The gym is used by child care providers, community health agencies,
municipal/provincial/federal government agencies and social services clubs to
provide basic services and supports which would not otherwise be available in the
community.
Yes
Best Start programming is provided in the school and is funded by various
ministries through partnerships among ministries and community agencies.
The Public Library is on the school site and is used by students and community
members alike throughout the year.
Does the school have historic value in the broader community?
Comments: The original schoolhouse remains on the school property and
currently houses the only second hand store in the village.
Wollaston Township also has a unique partnership with the Board for the
Community Centre. The Township paid 50% of the construction costs for the
erection of the Community Centre/School Gymnasium and 100% of the costs for
the addition of the kitchen, washroom and storage facilities at the Centre.
Yes
If the school were to remain open, how/what programs could the school attract?
An extensive effort to recruit volunteers and co-ordinators to reinstate extra curricular
programming would be required to implement additional programs. Children’s programming
and summer camp type programming would be ideal to address a significant service gap in our
community. An after-school program would also be beneficial.
Page 20 of 24 Revised October 1/08 HPEDSB
COE HILL SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK 3.0 Value to the Community
What would the community lose if the school were to close?
Coe Hill School is the first link for many of our youth to the broader community. Our rural
geography allows our school to provide social activities and programming which would not
typically be available to many of our youth and community members without the school and
community centre available to house these activities.
The population of Coe Hill is aging and the community is being recognized more often as a
retirement village. However, to sustain the community’s existence in the future, services and
supports need to be available to younger families who also continue to come to the area. If the
school (and programs facilitated at the school) were eliminated, many of these younger families
may leave the community for access purposes and new families would not be likely to consider
Coe Hill to establish a permanent residence.
Wollaston Township is participating in an intensive downtown revitalization project in an effort
to attract more business and families to the community. The loss of the school would have a
negative impact on this venture.
Considerations:
How would a school closure impact the social fabric of the community in the long term?
The loss of the school within the community would have a profound impact on the community.
Some young families would leave the community and others would choose not to move to the
community at all. Over time, these changes would have a negative impact on the economic
stability of the community and would negatively affect the community’s ability to provide
continued supports and services within community boundaries.
What is the role of parents in keeping the school open?
A strong communication plan to encourage more parents to volunteer at the school and be an
active participant in their children’s education is crucial. More parents need to support their
children and the school staff and other volunteers to provide an enriched opportunity for all
children and families in the community.
What is the school council’s view of the school and its role/commitment to keeping the school
open?
Coe Hill School Council is committed to providing support to parents, volunteers and Board Staff
to ensure that the children in our community have the best possible chance of achieving their
maximum potential. Our small, but dedicated team of parent and community volunteers
provide opportunity for growth and enrichment both in the school and in the greater community
for our youth and their families through financial contributions, sharing of expertise and skills
with the school, organization of school and community events and provision of youth
programming.
Page 21 of 24 Revised October 1/08 HPEDSB
COE HILL SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK What type of activities have parents/parent council been involved in to support the school in the
past (i.e. fundraising)?
Fundraising – Parent council is the primary source of funding for trips and excursions for our
students away from the school. Bussing costs to sporting events and excursions to support
student learning outside the classroom are offset by school council’s efforts. School Council
raised money for the purchase of a new play structure and are working toward raising funds for
the purchase of a second structure for our youngest students. Fundraising activities have
included: bake sales, chocolate bar sales, raffles, Christmas store, fun days, cookbook sales,
etc.
Programming Support – Several parents volunteer in the school on a regular basis to provide
supports to staff and students. Parents assist with special events, health and nutrition
programs (snack programs), Christmas concert and in class projects.
Campbell Soup Label Collection – School council administers the soup label collection program
to provide additional resources of sports equipment and learning resources for the school.
Library Support – School council provides financial donations to agencies/groups/organizations,
which directly impact student learning, such as the library board.
What is the potential for increased community use of the school? If possible, provide details.
The recruitment of volunteers to reinstate programs for youth and community members is
possible if time and resources could be made available to support this recruitment. Girl Guides
of Canada and Scouts Canada programming were previously offered in the school facility. The
local Senior’s Group has used the gymnasium for carpet bowling in the past. The development
of further community activities for the young and older members of our community is possible
and desirable. This will require commitment from community members to offer these programs
and the support of the board and the township in making facilities available and accessible.
Summary: - What is the value of the school to the community?
Coe Hill School is a multi-function facility in our community, providing a full range of services to
our youth, families and community members by providing a broad spectrum of opportunities for
community growth and participation. The closure of the school would definitely have a
negative impact on the scope of programming opportunities available to our community. We
feel that the community would be defined as a retirement community if the school closes do to
the potential loss of young families.
Page 22 of 24 Revised October 1/08 COE HILL SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK HPEDSB
4.0
Value to the Local Economy
Does the school play an important role in attracting and/or keeping investment in the
community?
Explain: Young families with children bring income to the community which is generally
of retirement age. The loss of the revenue generating community members could have
an impact on the continued existence of several small business in the community. In
addition, young families always consider the proximity to schools and other amenities
when deciding where to move with small children. The lack of a school would make Coe
Hill unappealing to many of these families.
Yes
Does the school play a key role in attracting families to the community?
Explain: Coe Hill is a significant distance from anywhere else. The community is self
sufficient with a grocer, gas station, bank, restaurants, post office, and school. The
closure of the school would require families to travel away from the community to obtain
education for their children. Due to the geographic distance to another education facility,
families with very small children probably would not choose to move to our community
and put their child on a bus for over an hour to get to school.
Yes
Wollaston Township is actively working to revive the community, through Downtown
Revitalization, and encourage growth in the community by attracting residents (including
those with young children) to the community. The school is used when marketing the
community to newcomers considering relocating to the community.
Does the presence of the school affect real estate values?
Explain: Both Limerick and Wollaston Township representatives feel that the exodus of
young families from our community, in the event of school closure, would have a
negative impact on property values and saleability of property within the townships.
Does the school offer co-operative education programs or adult learning programs?
Yes
No
Provide details:
Does the school offer training opportunities or partnerships with businesses?
No
Provide details:
Is there realistic potential for growth in the immediate area?
Comments: Wollaston Township has just embarked on an extensive and expensive
downtown revitalization project, which is likely to attract more business and residents to
our area once completed. Although the township is not able to provide clear benchmarks
or expectations of growth at this time, the potential for growth exists.
Yes
Limerick Township is working on completion of plans for a 110-lot subdivision (with a
possibility of an additional 22 lots) in the Township. Families who purchase these homes
would be within the geographic boundaries for admission to Coe Hill School.
Page 23 of 24 Revised October 1/08 HPEDSB
COE HILL SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK Considerations:
What would be the effect of consolidation, closure or program relocation on the local economy:
diversification, sustainability of employment opportunities, effect on local businesses?
The closure of the school would result in the loss of young families to the community. Over
time, this will translate into a loss of economic stimulation since most seniors are on a fixed low
income. Although the cottagers that visit the area from May to August of each year will
continue to visit the community, the permanent residents of the community will not have the
ability to sustain local businesses during the off season because of restricted incomes. This will
impact on the local economy resulting in the closure or downsizing of local business, loss of
employment and access to service in the community.
Are there spin-off economic benefits of having the school? What would happen to these spinoffs if there was consolidation, closure or program relocation?
Although our school hosts children from a large geographic area, each parent visits our
community at least a few times per year for a school function. When these parents come into
our community, they buy gas at our gas station or pick up milk at the local store. These small
but consistent purchases are important to the continued existence of these businesses in our
community. If the school were to close, many of these parents would not travel into Coe Hill
and these purchases would be lost to other villages resulting in a negative economic impact.
What would be the impact of consolidation closure or program relocation on the employment
situation of school staff?
There are no local teacher’s or administrative staff members working in our school at this time.
They all travel from other communities to work in our school. The staff in our school (at least
initially) came to work in our school because an opportunity to teach was available there and
wasn’t available elsewhere. The closure of our school would require our teaching,
administration and custodial staff to seek employment in other communities, which have not
previously been able to meet their employment needs.
Summary: - What is the value of the school to the local economy?
Coe Hill School plays a valuable role in our local economy. The loss of the school would most
surely have a negative impact on the economic stability and future viability of the small
businesses that exist within the community.

HERMON PUBLIC SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK
Introduction
On October 31, 2006, the Ministry of Education released the Pupil Accommodation Guidelines
(previously referred to as school closure guidelines). The guidelines direct Ontario school boards
on the pupil accommodation review process to be undertaken to determine the future of a
particular school or group of schools. In response to these guidelines the Hastings Prince
Edward School Board revised Policy A-3 Student Enrolment/School Capacity (September 22,
2007) to ensure compliance with the expectations and intent of this guideline.
As part of the accommodation review process, a generic School Valuation Framework is
required to assess each of the following considerations for each school or group of schools
being reviewed:
•
Value to the student
•
Value to the school board
•
Value to the community
•
Value to the local economy
The review process will be led by the Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) appointed by
the Board and includes members from the school community and the broader community. The
Accommodation Review Committee may customize the School Valuation Framework to consider
additional factors appropriate to the group of schools (the Accommodation Review Area) under
review.
The North Hastings Area Review Committee
All schools in the North Hastings School Group are included in the North Hastings
Accommodation Review:
•
Bancroft Public School
•
Bird’s Creek Public School
•
Coe Hill School
•
Hermon Public School
•

Additional Comments:
Considerations:
Does the school currently provide the range of mandatory programs required to meet the
Ministry of Education policies and ensure program quality for all the students of the Board who
reside in the catchment area?
Hermon meets all the required program requirements by the Ministry of Education.
The quality of the programs is excellent, with the focus on the success of each and
every student in the school.
Does the school currently provide the range of optional programs required to ensure an
appropriate education and program quality for all the students?
As is the case with most of the schools in North Hastings, Hermon does not provide
optional programs such as a Special Education Regional Class. Hermon ensures an
appropriate education and program quality for all students with the Ontario
curriculum, which may be delivered in conjunction with an Individual Education
Plan.
Would consolidation, closure or program relocation provide students with access to varied
and/or better programs?
Hermon students would possibly be able to access class settings that do not involve
triple or double grades. This would not necessarily guarantee better programs as
our students learn in a positive, community influenced setting. Hermon students are
in a community that reinforces the importance of role models who exhibit the 8
character attributes promoted by HPEDSB.
Page 16 of 23 Revised November 30, 2008 HPEDSB
HERMON PUBLIC SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK
A relocation of the students would provide the students with a sense of departure
from their community and longer travel distances. The students would not have
access to a better program than what is offered in Hermon which meets Ministry
requirements, while at the same time the school ensures that each student’s
individuality is addressed in a non-judgemental setting.
Would consolidation, closure or program relocation reduce the probability that the students
would be in classes with two or more grades?
Hermon students would possibly be able to access class settings that do not involve
triple or double grades.
Would consolidation, closure or program relocation provide students with access to varied
and/or better extra curricular programs?
NO. Hermon has a plethora of extra curricular activities geared to the student’s
interests which are supported by the staff, the parent community and the Hermon
community. These activities allow the Hermon students to develop into wellrounded individuals.
A relocation of students may allow students to have larger numbers of students in
each age category for inter-school competitions.
Summary: - What is the value of the school to the student?
We are able to deliver the Ontario curriculum to all of our students. Hermon students benefit
from a large range of extracurricular activities, many of which benefit from the numerous
volunteers in our supportive Hermon school community. The students are exposed to a large
variety of opportunities which are provided to help ensure the social well being of the students.
The building is in excellent condition. It is an excellent design for an elementary school and has
developed into a facility that lends itself to community access as well. The layout of the school,
the large school grounds, the bus zone and spacious parking pose absolutely no safety
problems for staff or students.
The Hermon community revolves around the school and the students. There is overwhelming
support for everything that happens at the school. The students enjoy an enriched learning
setting that has been created by the students, staff, parents and the community of Hermon.

MAYNOOTH PUBLIC SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK
Introduction
On October 31, 2006, the Ministry of Education released the Pupil Accommodation Guidelines
(previously referred to as school closure guidelines). The guidelines direct Ontario school boards
on the pupil accommodation review process to be undertaken to determine the future of a
particular school or group of schools. In response to these guidelines the Hastings Prince
Edward School Board revised Policy A-3 Student Enrolment/School Capacity (September 22,
2007) to ensure compliance with the expectations and intent of this guideline.
As part of the accommodation review process, a generic School Valuation Framework is
required to assess each of the following considerations for each school or group of schools
being reviewed:
•
Value to the student
•
Value to the school board
•
Value to the community
•
Value to the local economy
The review process will be led by the Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) appointed by
the Board and includes members from the school community and the broader community. The
Accommodation Review Committee may customize the School Valuation Framework to consider
additional factors appropriate to the group of schools (the Accommodation Review Area) under
review.
The North Hastings Area Review Committee
All schools in the North Hastings School Group are included in the North Hastings
Accommodation Review:
•
Bancroft Public School
•
Bird’s Creek Public School
•
Coe Hill School
•
Hermon Public School
•
Maynooth Public School

Summary: - What is the value of the school to the student?
Maynooth Public School offers a safe learning environment for all students and is a Healthy
Active School Community. The facilities both inside and out are extremely well maintained and
conducive to a variety of curricular and extracurricular activities. The vast playground is
beautifully grassed with designated areas for various activities. Access to a gymnasium would
be beneficial to the students, however, the staff ensure that our school is represented at all
sports tournaments despite the limitations that our All Purpose Room poses on certain skill
development (e.g. volleyball). Character Education initiatives are well known by the students
and both students and staff strive to maintain a respectful, caring and nurturing learning
environment that our school has to offer. Maynooth Public School offers a Balanced School
Day schedule which provides for optimum learning and teaching time. Our computer lab has 30
computers with a wide range of programs and the lab is extensively used throughout the day
for cross curricular subjects. Our school is able to provide a full range of programs for all grade
levels. The In School Resource Teacher and Literacy Partner are available to support both
students and and staff as we work together to meet the needs of all learners. Maynooth Public
School continues to be a Best Start site. The Best Start program runs on the alternate
Kindergarten days and provides child care and programming for Kindergarten age students that
supports the Ministry of Education’s Kindergarten curriculum.

Would consolidation, closure or program relocation involving the school realize operating
efficiencies for the school board?
The fiscal impacts of closing Maynooth would be minimal for general operations. With the rural
funding grant now in place revenues come close to matching expenses. The Board would save
around $20,000 a year. I f Maynooth were to close, the saving would come as a result of
savings in the current repair and renewal costs (which are not included in the operations. The
Board could save up to $926, 245 in current repair and renewal costs. This includes such things
as roof repairs, needed upgrades to floors, ceiling tiles, millwork, painting, electrical, plumbing,
septic upgrade, current gym fixtures, etc. It does not include the cost of upgrading the ‘gym’.

Summary: - What is the value of the school to the school board?
Maynooth Public School is a well maintained and functional site. Within approximately the last
5 years the following upgrades have been made:
¾ Energy saving ballasts in all classrooms
¾ New boiler system
¾ New windows in northern section of the school (other windows deemed in good repair)
¾ New roof (approximately ½ replaced was all that was required)
¾ New student washrooms
¾ New tile/carpet in computer lab/library and resource office
Aside from some aesthetic improvements (e.g. painting) and the school community’s
request for a gym to enhance the Physical Education program, Maynooth PS is in good
repair and could theoretically continue to exist without considerable capital expenditure
in terms of upgrades to the facility over the next few years.

Maynooth PS is a valued part of the Maynooth community. We have strong relations with a
number of community partners such as ANAF,the Hastings Highlands Public Library , Maynooth
Shell as well as other individuals and community groups. Our children are the community’s
children and the local residents and business owners feel a sense of pride in their home town
school.
Our school, in turn, looks how we can give back to the community and show that we
appreciate the support that we are given throughout the year (e.g. participation in Pitch In Day,
school wide food drives to support Maynooth and Area Food Bank). We have a healthy number
of dedicated volunteers who come to our school to support our students in many ways. We
have an active and supportive School Council who are actively involved in the ARC process,
attending meetings and providing input. The School Council’s fundraising efforts have resulted
in the purchase of the Romper Bus for our younger students to enjoy. As a school, we make
our students aware of the support we receive from our community partners. Maynooth PS has
deep roots within the community with a number of third generation family members attending
MPS. Being located on the main street of Maynooth, we are a visible presence to all passersby
and our playground is often accessed by community children after school hours and on
weekends. Maynooth PS has welcomed Co-op students from the local area providing them
with hands on experience. Several of our teachers have opened their classrooms to welcome
teachers in training from various universities.

NORTH HASTINGS SENIOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK Introduction
On October 31, 2006, the Ministry of Education released the Pupil Accommodation Guidelines
(previously referred to as school closure guidelines). The guidelines direct Ontario school boards
on the pupil accommodation review process to be undertaken to determine the future of a
particular school or group of schools. In response to these guidelines the Hastings Prince
Edward School Board revised Policy A-3 Student Enrolment/School Capacity (September 22,
2007) to ensure compliance with the expectations and intent of this guideline.
As part of the accommodation review process, a generic School Valuation Framework is
required to assess each of the following considerations for each school or group of schools
being reviewed:
•
Value to the student
•
Value to the school board
•
Value to the community
•
Value to the local economy
The review process will be led by the Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) appointed by
the Board and includes members from the school community and the broader community. The
Accommodation Review Committee may customize the School Valuation Framework to consider
additional factors appropriate to the group of schools (the Accommodation Review Area) under
review.
The North Hastings Area Review Committee
All schools in the North Hastings School Group are included in the North Hastings
Accommodation Review:
•
Bancroft Public School
•
Bird’s Creek Public School
•
Coe Hill School
•
Hermon Public School
•
Maynooth Public School
•

NORTH HASTINGS HIGH SCHOOL VALUATION FRAMEWORK Introduction
On October 31, 2006, the Ministry of Education released the Pupil Accommodation Guidelines
(previously referred to as school closure guidelines). The guidelines direct Ontario school boards
on the pupil accommodation review process to be undertaken to determine the future of a
particular school or group of schools. In response to these guidelines the Hastings Prince
Edward School Board revised Policy A-3 Student Enrolment/School Capacity (September 22,
2007) to ensure compliance with the expectations and intent of this guideline.
As part of the accommodation review process, a generic School Valuation Framework is
required to assess each of the following considerations for each school or group of schools
being reviewed:
•
Value to the student
•
Value to the school board
•
Value to the community
•
Value to the local economy
The review process will be led by the Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) appointed by
the Board and includes members from the school community and the broader community. The
Accommodation Review Committee may customize the School Valuation Framework to consider
additional factors appropriate to the group of schools (the Accommodation Review Area) under
review.
The North Hastings Area Review Committee
All schools in the North Hastings School Group are included in the North Hastings
Accommodation Review:
•
Bancroft Public School
•
Bird’s Creek Public School
•
Coe Hill School
•
Hermon Public School
•
Maynooth Public School
•
North Hastings Senior Elementary School
•
