LDSB to review school needs

Kingston, ON, Canada / CKWS TV

The Limestone School Board is reviewing the fate of a number of schools.

Trustees hired a consulting firm to study future enrolment trends, and the condition of aging schools.

The long-term accommodation plan will be the focus of a public meeting on September 28.

The plan identifies the ‘possible’ closure and consolidation of several elementary schools over the next 15 years.

Schools such Rideau, Amherst Island, Yarker and Winston Churchill are on the list.

Trustees will have to set up a P.A.R.C process each time they want to review the future of one, or more schools.

Paula Murray: “There are families of school that are listed to be reviewed in this year. We don’t have that report yet that was recommended from Ameresco. It will be, when that senior staff report is delivered to the board of trustees we will receive that. Then we will begin the process of the PARC.”
