Welcome to the Earl of March Secondary School

Last updated December 11th, 2014


As an important member of our community, we want to learn about your experience with our schools and/or our District.  We have launched an online consultation process to help us better understand what you think we do well, where we can improve, and how we might better engage and support our stakeholders.  Your answers will help us to develop our future priorities.

Here’s how you can be a part of the conversation:

Step One - December 1st – December 14th

Around December 1st, you will have received an e-mail with the subject line: #EverySchool_EveryVoice, inviting you to participate. Click on the link in the e-mail to answer three open-ended questions. If you don’t get an e-mail you can register yourself on our website www.ocdsb.com

Step Two - January 9th – 18th

In January, you will receive an e-mail inviting you to help set priorities. The e-mail will contain a link so you can see the input received during Step 1. Pick what’s important to you. Everyone is welcome to participate – whether or not you shared your thoughts in December.

Step Three – February 2015

You will receive an e-mail about the results, which will also be posted on our website at www.ocdsb.com.

Need More Information?

Learn more from our introductory video or on the district website which includes some frequently asked questions. If you have more questions, please contact Paula Hall, Strategic Business Analyst at  or call 613-596-8211, ext. 8402.​

Public Meetings on Boundary Revisions and Elementary

Alternative Program Boundary Expansion

The public is invited to attend one of four joint meetings to be held across the District to seek input on minor attendance boundary revisions and the expansion of the Elementary Alternative Program boundaries.

Minor Attendance Boundary Revisions

In an effort to ensure school boundaries are consistent with new development areas, improve access to programming, provide better utilization of existing instructional space and address inconsistencies in neighbourhood alignments, staff is proposing a number of minor boundary adjustments to provide for effective accommodation of students in different parts of the District. Areas/Programs/Boundaries potentially impacted include the following:

  • Mer Bleue Expansion area (Orleans)
  • Cardinal Creek New development area (Orleans)
  • Central Park MFI 4-8 boundary revision
  • Valley Stream Secondary 9-12 boundary revision
  • West Carleton MFI 4-8 boundary revision
  • Riverside South New development areas (south of Armstrong Rd. and east of
    Limebank Rd.)
  • J.H. Putman/Broadview 7-8 EFI boundary revision (Carlingwood area only)
Detailed information regarding these proposed revisions can be found at:
