According to TDSB data, schools in York South–Weston need about $150 million of repairs. TDSB schools require $3.7 billion in total.
- Elevators and lifts
- Roof coverings
CR Marchant is also in very bad shape. It requires about $7 million in repairs, though (happily?) only the foundation is urgent. For perspective, the province said the replacement cost of the whole school is $10.3 million. CR has long needed work.
York Humber High School needs $5.9 million in repairs.
Weston Memorial needs $4.7 million, including to the sanitary sewer, rainwater drainage, and water distribution systems.
Bala needs $4.6 million. Dennis Ave, $4.3. Pelmo’s a bargain with $3.6. It goes on.
The TDSB says that all the buildings are safe, just run down: “The health and safety of students, staff and community members are our top priority when planning school repairs. Our Facility Services staff works year-round to ensure our schools are safe”.
