School district facilities plan to be released Tuesday

Where should new schools go, should there be more reconfiguration to K-5 at elementary schools, and what kind of programs should be offered at schools? Answers to these topics will be revealed in the much-anticipated long-term facilities plan for Langley School District.

The public is invited to attend a special meeting of the Board of Education which will reveal the district’s Long Term Facilities Plan on Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 7 p.m.

The plan will help formulate the board’s five-year capital plan submission to the Ministry of Education for funding for new schools. The board said it hasn’t decided the format of the special meeting yet, so it isn’t known if they will be taking comments from the audience on the plan.

The board had already seen the report at a Sept. 20 in-camera meeting, and sent it back to the consultant with several recommendations.

Once those recommendations are implemented, the report will be ready for the public to see.

It was in the spring that the district held numerous community consultations, asking the public, mainly parents, what they would like to see at their schools and where improvements could be made. They asked if there should be more middle schools, and where they should be located. Those roundtable discussions were documented and that information, along with feedback through e-mails and letters, was included to form the report.

The meeting takes place at the board office, 4875 222 St.
