School District 27 public consultation meetings coming up

The School District 27’s consultation dialogue on its Initial Options Report will begin Tuesday night.

  • Oct. 1, 2012 1:00 p.m.

Municipalities, the regional district, and provincial and community organizations are invited to join the general public in School District 27’s consultation dialogue on its Initial Options Report proposals for closing and consolidating schools in the district to meet fiscal restraints.

The board asks participants to consider the report, think long term, think collaboration, and address questions such as what are the challenges of the initial options report, what are the benefits, and what could be done differently?

The first public consultation meeting for the north end of the district will be held at Williams Lake Secondary School gymnasium starting at 6:30 p.m. tonight, Tuesday, Oct. 2.

An “Out of the Box”  think tank will also be held for the public at the Columneetza gymnasium on Oct. 25 starting at 6:30 p.m.

Public consultation meetings will also be held at Oct. 16 at Alexis Creek School at 7 p.m.; Glendale elementary Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m.; Kwaleen elementary Nov. 20 at 6:30 p.m.; and Wildwood elementary Nov. 29 at 6:30 p.m.

Public consultation meetings are also scheduled for the 100 Mile House area.

Separate consultation meetings are also scheduled with teaching, administrative and support staff and for communities in the south end of the district.

Written presentations on the Initial Options Report will be accepted by the board at any time throughout the 90-day consultation process, as well as feedback through e-mail using the ThoughtStream process.
