3520 | Disposal of Land and Improvements Policy

Date Approved: September 09 2014
Date Reviewed/Amended: October 10 2017

The Board is responsible for the disposal (including by sale, leases, or the granting of a charge) of real property and may dispose of land or improvements, such as buildings affixed to land, subject to the orders of the Minister of Education.

The primary purpose of Board-owned property is to deliver and support educational programs to students served by the Board.  If the Board no longer requires property for educational purposes, it must seek the approval of the Minister prior to disposing of the property by sale and transfer or by a lease of 10 years of more, unless the Board is selling or leasing land or buildings to another Board (including the Conseil Scolaire Francophone) or to an independent school for educational purposes.

The Board must engage in broad consultation and in enhanced planning regarding underutilized school buildings and other property owned by the Board prior to property disposition.

After considering future educational needs of the school district, the Board may deem property to be no longer required for educational purposes. This policy and accompanying regulation outline the terms and conditions that the Minister will consider in the approval of the Board’s request to dispose of real property, including the sale, exchange, or lease of 10 years or more of land or improvements, or both.
