Extended consultations on the future of schools in Ladysmith are wrapping up, and hundreds are expected to pack Ladysmith Secondary to the hear the SD 68 Board make its decision.

A Ladysmith Working Group has been suggesting some options but, despite that effort, the Superintendent is recommending closures under the 10 Year Enhanced Facilities Plan.

Aaron stone is a member of LWG and co-chair of the Ecole Davis Road PAC.


The Superintendent’s recommendations are:

1)    The board of trustees will vote on permanently closing Ecole Davis Road in June 2014; consolidating the French and English programs there to Ladysmith Intermediate and Ladysmith Primary.

2)    Permanently closing North Oyster Elementary; coinciding with the opening of the renovated Cedar Elementary in 2015.

The meeting is Wednesday Dec. 18th at 6pm.  You can see the agenda here.
