Middlesex Elementary Panel Attendance Area Review

Middlesex North Elementary Attendance Area Review Update

June 27, 2024

Thames Valley’s Board of Trustees has approved boundary changes for Delaware Central and Parkview Public Schools, effective September 2025.  

On June 25, trustees accepted and approved the final report of the Middlesex Elementary Panel Attendance Area Review (MEAAR). The review sought to address enrolment pressure at Delaware Central Public School.  

As part of this review, it set new boundaries for both schools and changed the home school for some students in Komoka-Kilworth from Delaware Central Public School to Parkview Public School.  

Please see below for a list of approved motions.

October 25, 2023 - Board to seek public feedback on Middlesex Elementary Panel Attendance Area Review
On October 24, 2023, Thames Valley District School Board Trustees supported plans to seek public feedback on the Middlesex Elementary Panel Attendance Area Review (MEAAR) initial report.

The report includes options for balancing enrolment at Delaware Central Public School and Parkview Public School.

Next steps will involve forming an Attendance Area Review Committee (AARC) as well as school level sub-committees with parent/guardian representatives from each affected elementary school. The sub-committees will hold meetings with their school communities to gather public feedback about the options under consideration.

Boundary changes would only take effect following public consultation and Trustee approvals. The soonest the Board would implement any attendance area changes would be September 2025.

For more information, including interactive maps where families can search to see if their address is within the proposed attendance areas, please visit www.tvdsb.ca/mearr.
