In most of Richmond declining neighbourhood enrolment has resulted in underutilization of school capacity. In some schools student populations are so small that the School District cannot offer the optimal range of programs. Trustees need to make a decision on which schools to close to ensure facilities are used in an effective and fiscally responsible way.
Trustees want to hear from you as they gather information to inform their decisions and make their way through this process. Please visit http://letstalksd38.ca(link is external) and register on the site to provide your input and receive regular updates.
Beginning today, the Board has scheduled a number of open houses from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at secondary schools across the city. The following open house dates have been confirmed:
Thursday, October 15, 2015 - Richmond Secondary, Theatre room
Tuesday, October 20, 2015 - Burnett Secondary, Multi-purpose room
Thursday, October 22, 2015 - McNair Secondary, Gym
Tuesday, October 27, 2015 - McMath Secondary, Gym
Thursday, October 29, 2015 - Cambie Secondary, Gym
We hope that you will attend one of these sessions and continue to provide your input.
