DDSB Approves Modified Accommodation Review for Beaverton and Thorah Central Public Schools in Brock Township

February 23, 2017

At the February 21, 2017 Board Meeting, the Durham District School Board (DDSB) Trustees approved the following accommodation solution for two Township of Brock Elementary Schools: Beaverton PS and Thorah Central PS.

The approved accommodation solution includes the following:

  • The closure and consolidation of Beaverton PS and Thorah Central PS into a new school on the Beaverton PS property, pending Ministry of Education approval and funding based on the Board's business case outlining the project.
  • Beaverton PS and Thorah Central PS will continue to adhere to current boundaries until such time as a new school is completed on the Beaverton PS site and a new school year commences.
  • Beaverton PS and Thorah Central PS will close and consolidate into a new school on the Beaverton PS site once the school is completed and open.

The recommendations also include transitional funding, pending Ministry of Education approval and funding.

"A new, consolidated school for the Beaverton PS and Thorah Central PS communities will  offer students more opportunities in educational programming and extracurricular activities," outlined Trustee Elinor Hansen, Brock and Uxbridge Townships.

Further details of the Board of Trustees’ approved Modified Accommodation Review for Brock Township can be found on the DDSB website, Accommodation Review – Beaverton/Thorah Central Elementary.
