Board Concludes Community Consultation Process

At the Special Meeting of the Board of Education, the community consultation regarding the Willoughby and Langley Secondary communities was concluded. Just under 100 people attended the meeting and seven delegations addressed the Board prior to any debate and voting. A motion to permanently close Langley Secondary School was opposed by the Board. A second motion was passed to direct staff to submit a business case to the Ministry of Education related to 'Option 4', the 'right-sizing' or rebuilding of portions of the current LSS. The Board has also directed staff to to indicate to the Ministry of Education that the preferred option on the Willoughby slope is for a new secondary school as a part of the business case.

"There is no guarantee that they will approve or move forward with the recommendation that we give them", said Board Chair Rob McFarlane in reference to the Ministry of Education, and "..it may be process that takes time", said Secretary Treasurer David Green earlier in the meeting.
