Yonge-Eglinton Phase 2 Review

(April 2021)

A new Yonge-Eglinton Phase 2 Program Area Review Team has been established to continue looking at accommodation solutions to address overcrowding at Eglinton Jr PS, and will include consideration of the Bannockburn building to resolve ongoing accommodation pressures in the Yonge-Eglinton area. 

A previous review team was established in early 2019, but was paused in April 2019 after changes were announced by the Province affecting secondary school class sizes and funding. At the same time, a system-wide French Review and a Secondary Program Review were being undertaken. Directives coming out of those system reviews have now been incorporated into staff’s work to address the accommodation pressures impacting local schools in this area.

Update on Yonge-Eglinton PART Phase 2

(April 23, 2019)

Due to recent changes to funding and class sizes affecting secondary schools, the Yonge-Eglinton PART Phase 2 has been paused (all active reviews are also being paused).  The pause will allow TDSB staff consider secondary properties as opportunities to address accommodation pressures. To that end, the public meetings scheduled on May 6 and 9 have been cancelled and the Program Area Review Team will resume working meetings in September 2019.

Yonge-Eglinton Phase 2 Program Area Review

April 7, 2019

The public consultation phase of the Yonge-Eglinton Phase 2 Program Area Review is currently underway. Parent representatives from Bedford Park PS, Eglinton Jr PS, Glenview Sr PS, Hodgson MS, John Fisher Jr PS, and Northlea E & MS are attending a series of Program Area Review Team (PART) meetings with School Principals, Superintendent, Trustees, and TDSB Central Staff to consider accommodation solutions with the aim of reducing enrolment pressures at local schools.


The role of the PART is to review data, discuss impacts of proposed changes, and come up with recommendations that will be shared with the Board of Trustees. During this process, we are committed to keeping parents/guardians and community members informed, and to give you the opportunity to provide feedback, share ideas and to ask questions.



Public meetings will take place on Monday, May 6, 2019 and Thursday, May 9, 2019 at Hodgson Middle School (282 Davisville Avenue) from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm to  provide feedback and to ask questions. The same information will be presented at each of those two meetings.


Presentation material from each of the Program Area Review Team meetings as well as additional resources will be posted on the TDSB’s website:



Under ‘Current Program Area Reviews’, select:  Bedford Park PS, Eglinton Jr PS, Glenview Senior PS, Hodgson MS, John Fisher Jr PS, Northlea E and MS.
