School District #53 will keep Osoyoos Secondary School open for at least two years – with funds guaranteed by the province.
3pm to 4pm Thursday in Oliver. Vote 5 to 2 in favour of changing a motion.
Most people in the audience waited patiently for the vote – listening for key words in the discussion.
A theme – that the funding was not sustainable or predictable based on past experience. It would get the government in Victoria past the next election in May and a number of trustees would not be at the table in January of 2019.
All agreed including parents, councillors and members of the chamber of commerce – a better job is needed to shore up the education funding in BC so that school districts don’t have to go through the roller coaster drama every year.
For senior staff at the School Distict – a full summer of dismantling a plan for integrating high school students in SOSS in Oliver.
Vic Vieira – I have a kid going into grade 8 – I want him to go to school in Osoyoos. Yes I am very pleased.
