8 ARC Review Process Administration will provide a Terms of Reference describing the ARC’s mandate, review process, and Reference Criteria; ARC will review School Information Profiles provided by Administration and modify, if necessary; ARC will review each school to understand how well each school meets the accommodation objectives and the Reference Criteria, according to the following framework: - Value to the student - Value to the LDCSB - Value to the community - Value to the local economy

9 ARC Review Process The final School Information Profiles and the Reference Criteria will provide the basis for discussion and analysis of accommodation options. The ARC may create alternative accommodation options in addition to those provided by Administration in the Preliminary Administrative Report.

10 Purpose of Preliminary Administrative Report To provide an analysis of enrolments (current and future), capacity review, academic and educational services at review area schools (Part I); To present accommodation options (Part II); To provide an Administrative analysis of all options (Part III), and, To assist stakeholders in providing input to the ARC (Part IV).

11 Key Accommodation Review Issues 1. St. Joseph’s has significantly low enrolment (i.e. current and projected enrolment is less than 100 ADE) and is operating significantly below its permanent capacity, and, 2. St. David and St. Jude’s have a surplus in pupil places (both current and projected), and are located within a reasonable distance from St. Joseph’s.

24 Analysis of Accommodation Impact All options will affect approximately 48 St. Joseph’s students in All options are viable from an accommodation perspective given sufficient excess capacity exists at St. David and St. Jude’s. Option 2 would minimize the impact of closure by consolidating all St. Joseph’s students at St. Jude’s, and would not result in splitting St. David as an elementary feeder school to Regina Mundi College as Options 1 and 3 would.

25 Analysis of Financial Impact All options will result in the need for 2 additional buses, at an estimated annual cost of approximately $70,000. No costs are anticipated for portable relocations/operations since sufficient surplus capacity exists at St. David and St. Jude’s. In 2011/2012, there was a shortfall at St. Joseph’s ($5,378) when comparing revenues and expenditures for school administration and operations. This gap in funding at St. Joseph’s is expected to grow as enrolment declines throughout the forecast period.
