Good afternoon CUPE Staff
Here is the link to the report that was recommend to the board. Please take the time to review the whole report. The recommendations are listed on page 12. There will be an additional meeting Tuesday November 28th @ 7pm in the Houston Secondary School library, please come and attend. There will be a Q&A period.
Here are the recommendations as quoted directly from the Facilities Review Report
The following reason have been provided for considering the reconfiguration of Houston schools:
1. declining enrollment and minimal capacity utilization;
2. important to spread resources equitably throughout district;
3. future reductions in revenue funding or budgetary restraints;
4. insufficient capital support available for facilities.
It is therefore recommended that School District 54 Board of Education direct senior administration to explore and pursue the option of requesting financial support from the Ministry for a fixed modular annex in Houston.
It is also recommended that the School District 54 Board of Education direct senior administration to apply for funding from the 2018/19 Rural Education Enhancement Fund in regards to a potential school reconfiguration / closure.
Any further questions can be answered by Adam, myself or your Admin.
