School Board staff meet with parents to discuss relocation options for New Glasgow students
Media Release-Monday, June 11, 2012 – Truro, NS –Chignecto-Central Regional School Board (CCRSB) staff met with parents at a public meeting tonight, in New Glasgow, to discuss the relocation options for students while the new Primary to Grade 8 school is built.
“This was a very detailed process,” says Clarke. “Our staff looked at a number of different, possible locations and, measuring them against the criteria, we arrived at the two options that we presented parents with tonight: moving students to Temperance Street or East Pictou Middle School. Once we have gathered feedback from parents on these two options, staff will make a final decision on the relocation.”
Parents of New Glasgow Junior High, Temperance Street, Acadia Street and A.G. Baillie Memorial School students are encouraged to send their comments and feedback to the School Board at suggestionsNGJH@ccrsb.ca by midnight, Wednesday, June 13. Once the feedback is received, staff will then make a final decision about the relocation options.
