School Vote Tonight

Regional | by John Divinski  

Bluewater Trustees will vote on future of schools in Hanover, Chesley and Dundalk.

As a rule, regular meetings of the Bluewater District School Board, attract little attention.

However tonight, with trustees slated to voted on Accommodation Review Committee recommendations, the meeting room is expected to be jammed.

So much so that officials have made arrangements to handle the overflow crowd in other rooms where they will be able to watch the proceedings via webcasting.

Each ARC committee has two recommendations apiece for trustees to consider.

Betting money has trustees voting in favour of a JK to Grade 12 school in both Chesley and Hanover, along with the closure of Dawnview school in Hanover.

Both MP Larry Miller and MPP Bill Walker have endorsed the idea of JK to Grade 12 schools in Chesley and Hanover.

In Kincardine the ARC committee preference is to keep all three elementary schools open with Elgin Market becoming French Immersion, however the board would lose 62 thousand dollars.

If they closed one of the schools, the bottom line would be 25 thousand dollars in the black.

Tonight's meeting starts at 7 PM at the board offices in Chesley.
