Board Highlights - April 28, 2020

April 29

The April 28, 2020 Board meeting was held electronically through Google Hangout Meet.  

Closure of Leslieville School K-7 Program

During the construction phase of the new schools planned in Condor and Leslieville, all students will be located in David Thompson High School.  It is more efficient to operate two distinct schools, instead of all three schools as eventually all K-6 students will be transferred to the new Condor Elementary School and all grade 7-12 students will be transferred to the new high school located in Leslieville.  Therefore the Board made a motion to close the Leslieville K-7 program as it will no longer be needed after the end of the 2019-2020 school year.

David Thompson Replacement High School Upgrades

The Friends of the Corridor have been raising funds to make enhancements to the new schools being built in Condor and Leslieville.  The board approved using these donated funds to improve the gym, kitchen and CTS facilities, covering any additional costs if the current estimates prove to be lower than actual costs.
