Strengthening or surviving education in Ontario’s rural communities

April 21, 2017 at 12:39 pm Leave a comment

The Ministry’s discussion paper, Supporting Students and Communities: A Discussion Paper to Strengthen Education in Ontario’s Rural and Remote Communities [pdf] is expected “to  guide our digital and in-person discussions based on the following questions:

  1. What are the opportunities for school boards to share space in your area? How can the provincial government and school boards support that?
  2. How can we ensure that the impact of schools on local communities is given full consideration?
  3. How can we best recognize the unique funding needs of rural and remote areas?”

The guide includes sections on: the sustainable use of school space in rural communities; the school as a community hub; sharing spaces; school closures; supporting quality education across the province.
