In June 2020 Byng Public School will close, and students will move to Clearview Meadows Elementary School beginning with the 2020-21 school year. This change is a result of motions passed by the SCDSB Board of Trustees during the Pupil Accommodation Review (ARC) completed in June 2016.
Many members of the community have questions about this transition. Answers to these questions are addressed in a Frequently Asked Questions document
. This document will be a living document, which is added to as new information becomes available.
In order to support this change, staff, students and community members at Byng and Clearview Meadows have and continue to plan transition activities. A Transition Committee consisting of students, parents and staff from both schools has also been established. Examples of events that have already taken place include:
- Joint events such as author visits, bike to school week and track and field
- International Walk to School Day
- Collaborative professional development and professional activity days including staff from both schools
