Trustees to Vote on Whether to Open New School
Prince George, B.C. – Prince George School trustees will vote on a recommendation to reopen Springwood Elementary School in the Hart at their monthly public board meeting tonight.
As 250News reported on Saturday, the recommendation has been put forth by superintendent of schools Marilyn Marquis-Forster and secretary treasurer Allan Reed.
The idea traces back to the BCTF’s Supreme Court of Canada victory over class size and composition last November. Taking the 2002 class size language into account, the District says it is estimated to require 10 additional classrooms at Glenview, Heather Park and Hart Highlands elementary schools.
Later today trustees will answer questions about the proposed opening. Springwood Elementary was closed in 2010.
