Lake Country students and parents have an opportunity to weigh in on the future of education.

School District No. 23 is in the process of updating the district’s Long-term Facility Plan.

To educate the public and gain feedback on the long-term vision, community meetings are getting underway.

The first takes place at Lake Country’s George Elliot Secondary gym Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.

The plan will be driven by educational program requirements, community and enrolment demographics, school operating capacities, as well as the current condition of facilities.

“The facility plan will provide a comprehensive rationale and business case for key local decisions related to future school grade configurations, specific school additions and renovations, replacement of aging schools, and requirement for new schools,” according to the district.

It will form the basis for all major capital investment decisions by the Ministry of Education.
