This item was dealt with under Resolution 98-951

 

Moved by Councillor Prentice,

Seconded by Councillor Palleschi;

Whereas the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board and the Peel District School Board operate a total of approximately 1450 portable classrooms in the Region of Peel;

And whereas, because of concerns surrounding the presence of mould (specifically stachybotrys atra) in some of these portables, both Boards have engaged environmental consulting firms and developed protocols for the inspection, testing, repair and ongoing maintenance of these classrooms;

And whereas, the Chief Medical Officer of Health for the Province of Ontario has stated that mould is a result of "inappropriately long use, inadequate maintenance and poor repair of temporary school buildings";

And whereas, lack of provincial funding through the years has necessitated the inappropriate long use of portables;

And whereas, the funds provided to the School Boards in Peel is grossly inadequate to address the present situation of mould in portable classrooms and as well as grossly inadequate to enable the School Boards to continue to maintain and repair school buildings;

And whereas, Regional Council is concerned that this lack of available funds will contribute to future problems;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Region of Peel request the Province of Ontario to provide specific additional funding to School Boards to alleviate the present problems being experienced by the mould issue in portables as well as ensuring that adequate funding is available for ongoing maintenance needs.
