Working group school brief

Ladysmith Extended Consultation Working Group to publish new report Wednesday afternoon

Ladysmith Extended Consultation Working Group will publish its new report tomorrow afternoon.

The report, to be submitted to the School District 68 board, will outline a new option that has been created from a recent round of public feedback.

Shauna De Bodt from SD68 confirmed the report will be up on the school district’s website Wednesday afternoon.

The working group is looking at school reconfiguration specific to Ladysmith, with SD68 set to announce their official decision December 19.

Parents from Ecole Davis Road Elementary School have been making particular noise in recent times as both of the working group’s previous options would have seen Davis Road close at some point in the next couple of years.

Another topic is the idea of sending Grade 7’s to Ladysmith Secondary School in the future which has members of the public split on the benefits of this move.
