Routley decision back on board table

It looks like Routley parents are going to get an answer sooner rather than later about whether they will get a school in their neighbourhood.

A special meeting of the Langley Board of Education has been called for Feb. 7 at 7 p.m. The only item currently on the agenda is for trustees to reconsider voting on the Routley land swap, confirmed Langley School District spokesperson Sandy Wakeling.

Township Council is also looking at voting on the land swap at its Feb. 6 meeting.

Originally, council had deferred any decision, deciding instead to wait for a Board of Education decision.

At the last school board meeting, trustees voted to put off any decision until they met with Township council to discuss “a possible resolution.”

On the Feb. 7 agenda, trustees are recommended to receive a report supporting the land exchange of the Routley school site for a site in the Yorkson area.
