Hanover | by Robyn Garvey  

Residents encouraged to attend ARC meeting to discuss Hanover and Chesley schools.

The Bluewater public school board is hosting another public accommodation review meeting tonight in Hanover.

It begins at 7 PM at John Diefenbaker Secondary School -- and it will look at the fate of Hanover and Chesley schools.

Over the last three public meetings -- emotions have run high about the possible closure of Chesley District High School.

Tonight's meeting will discuss various options.

They include closing Chesley District High and bussing students to a new Hanover high school.

There is also a plan to convert Chesley District into a J-K to Grade 12 school and building a new grade 4 to 12 high school in Hanover.

Hanover ARC representative Dave Hocking says nothing has been decided yet and there are still number of options on the table.

He says tonight's meeting will provide students, parents and community members with another opportunity to voice their questions, concerns and suggestions.

Fellow ARC member Larry Lantz encourages the public to become involved and informed by attending tonight's meeting.

After tonight's meeting -- there will be another public meeting in Chesley on April 14th, and a final one May 9th in Hanover.

A report on the matter will go to the School Board in June and a final decision is expected in October.
