At the open special meeting on March 29 at the SD8 district office, the Board of Trustees and Board of Education presented the facilities review draft plan.

At this meeting it was determined that the board chose to throw out the scenario in which Crawford Bay senior students (Grades 10-12) would travel to LVR in Nelson for their grad program years, leaving CBESS as a K-9 school.

The community spoke with a strong voice against this scenario and the board heard us.

Well done to the hard-working board who has put in countless hours towards the development of this plan, a crucial step in off-setting deferred maintenance costs and meeting the challenge of declining enrollment across the district.
