SD 70 school closure inept

SD 70 in Alberni appears to favour placing VAST students in Wood Elementary and moving the elementary school students elsewhere.

To the Editor,

Due to an annual budgetary shortfall of over $400,000, School District 70 plans to end VAST’s lease for a saving of $110,000 and close a school for a saving of $300,000.

The district appears to favour placing VAST students in Wood Elementary and moving the elementary school students elsewhere. Change of use, however, isn’t a school closure and won’t save $300,000.

So in all likelihood, another school will have to be closed. Gill? John Howitt?

So far, obfuscation of the issues is all we’ve heard from the district. Ineptness also comes to mind.
