School Holding Zones

In circumstances where there is an area of pending residential development within an existing Attendance Area, it may be advisable for Thames Valley District School Board to consider interim alternative pupil accommodation arrangements for that area, until such time as long-term pupil accommodation arrangements are in place.

Interim pupil accommodation for areas of pending residential development, or other enrolment pressures, may be accomplished through the establishment of Holding Zones and Holding Schools.


Holding Zone: an area defined by a geographic boundary, within an Attendance Area (usually with high concentrations of new or imminent development), for which the Trustees have approved that students residing in it are to attend a specified School based on available capacity, until such time as long-term accommodation and related revised Attendance Areas can be established.

Holding School: a school designated by the Trustees to accommodate students from one or more Holding Zones.
