NSD hosting public meeting at Dr. Mary Jackson School

Posted on March 14

Northland School Division invites residents to a public meeting on tomorrow (Thursday, March 15, 2018) at Dr. Mary Jackson School in Keg River. On January 26, 2018, the Board of Trustees approved a notice of motion regarding the possible closing of Dr. Mary Jackson School. 

NSD’s school closure policy (Policy 15 - School Closure), the School Act and Closure of Schools Regulation outlines a process for possible school closures; which includes hosting a public meeting. The public meeting will help NSD understand the reasons why parents are sending their children to other schools and give parents and community members the opportunity to discuss alternative programs and the preferred future for Dr. Mary Jackson School. NSD will also be presenting the Dr. Mary Jackson School Viability Report; which was presented at the Regular Board Meeting on January 26, 2018.

The Board of Trustees will vote on the motion no later than the Regular Board Meeting May 25, 2018.
