Meeting About Possible Closure of Gordon Graydon School in Mississauga Coming Up


Published November 17, 2016 at 9:54 pm


For months, the fate of Gordon Graydon Memorial School in Mississauga has hung in the balance and a public meeting on the school’s future is scheduled for next week.

Back in April, Peel District School Board trustees approved a pupil accommodation review (PAR) for Gordon Graydon, Glenforest, Lorne Park, T.L. Kennedy and The Woodlands secondary schools.

The report recommended closing Gordon Graydon and relocating the international business and technology, vocational, graphic design management and autism spectrum disorder programs to Glenforest and T.L. Kennedy and relocating the enhanced learning program from Glenforest to Lorne Park and The Woodlands.

It also recommended that the Gordon Graydon site and building be repurposed as the new location for the board’s Continuing and Adult Education Mississauga Campus.

At this juncture, the closure is not certain. The meeting is part of a review process designed to allow the board to “work with its school communities to plan together for secondary schools south of the 401.”

The meeting will be held at Port Credit Secondary School in the cafeteria on Nov. 23 at 7:00 p.m.

The school is located at 70 Mineola Rd. E.
