Quesnel To Offer It’s Two Cents On Rural Education
Quesnel’s Board of Education is sending a letter to the Parliamentary Secretary who is heading up the rural education task force.
Board Chair Gloria Jackson says they want to make sure that Linda Larsen knows about some of the concerns that they have that she says are unique to the Quesnel School District…
“Those are in regards to funding protection, some staffing, transportation, programming and maintenance costs, capital and infrastructure that we have in our district, partnerships with local governments and community transition concerns.”
Jackson says as enrollment levels out they are losing funding protection dollars.
As for infrastructure, she says Quesnel Junior School is an aging facility and they want to know what to do in the future.
Jackson noted that they didn’t get a chance to talk to Larsen at the meeting on rural education in Prince George earlier this month.
