Imagine Our Schools Meeting – Tuesday Jan 29, 7pm

The Imagine Our School consultants will unveil the first draft of their plan Tuesday at Citadel High…
A lot of people have asked me what I think. I have no strong opinion. As a member of the SAC “focus group” I saw advanced information last week with all the other SACs.

The proposals, which were for either 6 P-9 schools, or 8 P-6 and only two 550 student JHS 7-9 schools, were, at base, unrealistic, as the bottom line for me is I have yet to see a costed, affordable and achievable plan.

Like the HRSB plan before it, this is a plan to build, and the proposals seem to be very ambitious, probably far more ambitious than we ever can realistically expect to be funded by the Province.

I urge you to come to this meeting to see what is proposed and be prepared to argue your heart out if you don’t like what you see.

“Imagine Our Schools is a long-range planning process focused on engaging the public in a constructive conversation about the future of our schools. Key meetings to outline and discuss options for schools will take place on the following dates:

January 29, 2008
Halifax Peninsula Community Meeting
Citadel High Family of Schools
Location: Citadel High School – Cafeteria (1855 Trollope Street, Halifax)
7 pm to 9 pm

Options have been prepared by our consultants based upon public input thus far. For more information regarding Imagine Our Schools, click here”
