West Kelowna Storefront School finds temporary home

The building which has housed an RCMP station, former Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart's campaign office and Premier Christy Clark's campaign office during the spring by-election, will be the temporary home for West Kelowna's Storefront School.

West Kelowna council unanimously approved the issuance of a temporary use permit to allow the school to operate in the location for three years.

School District 23 previously operated the Storefront School out of a portion of Westbank Lions Community Centre, which was damaged by fire Sept. 1.

"I've spoken with school staff and their concern is that those kids (who use) the alternate school, are not in school—they don't want to go to Kelowna," said Mayor Doug Findlater.

"This seems to be a low impact location."
