Decision Day Approaches For Quesnel Schools Potentially On Chopping Block

 A decision on how many schools will be closed in Quesnel, if any, will be made on Wednesday, January 20th at Chuck Mobley Theatre at Correlieu Secondary School.

The decision will be the major part of the Quesnel Board of Education’s regular meeting on that night starting at 7 o’clock.

Board Chair Tony Goulet says the public is welcome to attend and they changed the venue because they are anticipating a larger than normal audience.

Goulet says he can’t stress enough how difficult a decision this is and he says it has been an extremely busy and emotional time for Trustees.

He says once a decision is made, and if a school closure is announced, it will then kick off another process.

Goulet says they will then go to their policies and procedures bylaws which calls for a 60-day public consultation process.

He says that will include more community meetings.

A final decision on any potential school closures for 2016-2017 would then be made at their March 30th School Board meeting.
