A secondary Kingston West Boundary Review meeting will be held the week of February 6 at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School – time and date to be confirmed.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Boundary Review​

The Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board promotes the efficient use of school facilities and resources through the maintenance of attendance boundaries which encompass the neighborhoods in which attending students live.
School attendance boundaries may require adjustment from time-to-time to ensure that the Board is meeting the needs of all our students. School boundaries may be influenced by many factors, such as:
  • ​Construction of a new school;
  • Demographic changes;
  • Municipal boundaries;
  • Neighborhood developments;
  • Natural geographic and transportation boundaries;
  • Bus transportation; and/or
  • Location and size of other school facilities.
The feedback link will remain open until Thursday, February 9, 2023 at 4:00 p.m.

​Kingston West Boundary Review 
​​On December 13, 2022, the Board of Trustees authorized staff to conduct a School Attendance Boundary Review for the Kingston West review area, including French Immersion attendance boundaries for Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School and Ecole Catholique Cathedrale, based upon an initial administrative boundary proposal. Staff are now beginning consultations with stakeholders and the Kingston West community based upon the recommended proposal as follows:
  • ​The division of the existing Mother Teresa Catholic School boundary to reassign students residing north of Princess Street and west of Bayridge Drive within the Mother Teresa Catholic School boundary to the new Kingston West Catholic Elementary School, located at 386 Holden Street.
  • The reassignment of the French Immersion boundaries that coincide with the Regular Track attendance boundaries of Archbishop O’Sullivan Catholic School, Mother Teresa Catholic School, St. John XXIII Catholic School, and St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Catholic School, from Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School to the new Kingston West Catholic Elementary School, located at 386 Holden Street.
  • The annexation of a small portion of the St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Catholic School boundary into the Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School boundary to reduce enrolment pressures at St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Catholic School due to future possible development within the annexed area.
  • Busing implications of the changes would be determined in accordance with Board policy -  Transportation of Students - S-2022-10-6
The Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board is committed to an open and transparent process that allows for public input through a variety of means. A Public Meeting has been scheduled, as noted below, to present proposals under consideration and to offer our parents and guardians the opportunity to ask questions and provide input.  The Board will compile and consider stakeholder input to bring to a future 2022-2023 Regular Board Meeting.

Why is the Boundary Change Review Happening at this Time?

ALCDSB is currently constructing a brand-new school in the Woodhaven Subdivision on Holden Street, off Cataraqui Woods Drive. Prior to the completion of the construction and the opening of the school to students, the Board needs to establish the attendance boundaries for this school.
