Long-term facility plan forums seeking input from parents

School District 23 will host two community meetings to provide an opportunity for public input into the long-term facility plan.

  • Oct. 19, 2012 7:00 p.m.

School District 23 is in the process of updating its Long-Term Facility Plan.

The plan will be driven by educational program requirements, community and enrolment demographics, school operating capacities, as well as the current condition of facilities.

It will provide a comprehensive rationale and business case for key local decisions related to future school grade configurations, specific school additions and renovations, replacement of aging schools, and requirement for new schools.

It is also required by the B.C. Ministry of Education to support all future major capital investment decisions and approvals.

The school district will host two upcoming community meetings to provide an opportunity for public input into the facility plan:

•  Monday, Oct. 22, 6:30 p.m., Kelowna Area at Hollywood Rd. Education Services, room #1

• Thursday, Oct. 25, 6:30 p.m., Lake Country Zone at George Elliot Secondary community gym

This is the school district’s second round of public consultation meetings on the Long-Term Facility Plan.

For more information about the plan, check out the school district website www.sd23.bc.ca.
