School Board To Consult Students on School Buildings
The Cape Breton Victoria-Regional School Board is now going to consult students as it looks at what to do with its school buildings.
The board has released a discussion paper called Looking Inward that says it has too much real estate and not enough students to fill it.
It outlines 32 possible scenarios that includes closing and amalgamating schools.
After recent community consultations the list of scenarios went up to 81.
The Board says it will now create seven student accommodation groups to look at how the scenarios would affect their schools.
The groups will also be made up of principals and members from school advisory councils.
They’ll report back to the board by the end of the school year.
