If everything goes as planned the new school to combine and replace Eastwood and Parkview public schools should be open during the 2020-21 school year. After evaluating all the available sites within the combined catchement area of the two schools, the Parkview Public School property has been selected as the best location for the new building.
The Ontario Ministry of Education has granted the GECDSB $13.2 million for a school of 501 student spaces along with 4 dedicated childcare rooms. Construction will begin once the design and site plans have been approved and a general contractor has been retained.
Students at Eastwood and Parkview will remain at their current schools until the new, as yet unnamed, building is opened.
