In January 2018, the Ministry of Education approved capital funding for three public elementary schools in Simcoe County. The school board’s policy says they may enter into facility partnerships when building new schools, undertaking significant renovations and when considering the use of unused space in schools. Now, they’re inviting interested parties to submit expressions of interest relating to potential partnership opportunities for North Bradford elementary school, Oro-Medonte elementary school, and Wasaga Beach elementary school.
Offering space in schools to partners can reduce facility operating costs, improve services and supports to students, as well as strengthen relationships between the school board, community partners and the public. Facility partnerships encourage and maximize the use of public infrastructure through increased flexibility and utilization, along with providing a foundation for improved service delivery for communities.
Expressions of interest should be submitted by Aug. 10. Email [email protected] for details.
