On Tuesday, January 7th, beginning at 6:00pm, Grindrod Elementary will be the host site for the first of several district and board lead consultation meetings regarding the district’s Long Range Facilities Plan. All community members are welcome to attend. This presentation will focus primarily on the Enderby/Grindrod long range facility proposals so it will be particularly important for families involved with the Grindrod, MV Beattie and AL Fortune schools. We encourage the community’s input as we work together to create the best long range facilities plan possible.
Below you will find an excerpt from the SD 83 website outlining the consultation process as well as a link to the Long Range Facilities Plan 2020-2029. We hope to see you at Grindrod Elementary on Tuesday, January 7th.
District Communication Exerpt:
The Board of Education adopted the draft 2020-29 long range facilities plan and will now begin the work of looking at all options, consulting, and then determining which of the options will actually become part of its final plan. The Board is open to discussions on options contained in the report as well as any other options potentially arising during the consultation process.
The Board decided that a series of regional consultation meetings on the long range facility plan will soon be organized and advertised so the public can have input into the development of the final plan. Written submissions to the Board are also being encouraged.
The Board also had a discussion around what ideal grade configuration might be, keeping in mind the realities of the district’s facilities and locations.
