New schools report coming from Ladysmith Working Group

A report outlining a new option for the future of Ladysmith and North Oyster schools is expected to come out Dec. 11.

Ladysmith Extended Consultation Working Group will publish its new report tomorrow afternoon (Dec. 11).

The report, to be submitted to the School District 68 board, will outline a new option for the future of Ladysmith and North Oyster schools 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 expected to make a decision during a Dec. 18 board meeting in Ladysmith.

Parents from École 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.
