Capital Plan
At the Business Committee of the Whole Meeting held on June 2, 2020, the Bluewater District School Board 2019-2024 5-Year Facility Planning Strategy, which was prepared by Bluewater District School Board staff with input from Watson & Associates Economist Ltd. and Simcoe County District School Board Planning Department, was presented. The strategy is a board-wide analysis with a focus on identifying areas and facilities that present certain factors or triggers in relation to pupil spaces, school condition, board finances and programming considerations.

At the Business Committee of the Whole Meeting held on May 6, 2014, the capital planning report, which was prepared by the firm Watson & Associates was presented to address the excess space and resultant financial impact on board facilities.  Jack Ammendolia from Watson & Associates spoke to the common problem of excess space in schools across Ontario school boards and provided a presentation outlining the methodology used, findings and recommendations, including projected utilization rates and potential savings if the recommendations were implemented.  

In July 2016, Watson & Associates completed an update to the 2014 report. The presentation and executive summary are provided below which were presented to the Board of Trustees in September 2016.
