|Adopted: May 25, 2010
Policy No. 800.6
STATEMENT OF POLICY
The Niagara Catholic District School Board recognizes its primary responsibility to support the achievement and safety of students, and its authority to make decisions regarding its school facilities and the use of its facilities that are consistent with its Mission, Vision and Values.
The Niagara Catholic District School Board also recognizes its responsibility to provide, operate and maintain school facilities as effectively and efficiently as possible, while taking into account the best education of students, as well as recognizing the value of Catholic schools in fostering a spirit of cooperation between the home, the school and the church.
Where opportunities exist to form partnerships that complement Catholic Education or the union of home, school and church, the Niagara Catholic District School Board may enter into licence or joint use agreements for unused space in open and operating facilities during school hours, or may co-build a new school or addition with such partners.
The Director of Education will issue Administrative Guidelines in support of this policy.
