Ministry increases support to rural and northern schools

June 29, 2017 at 3:35 pm Leave a comment

Announced on June 28, 2017, the Ministry “will support rural and Northern students and communities through a series of steps, including:

  • Overhauling the process that school boards use to review schools for potential closure. While the process is under review, school boards will not begin any new reviews [highlighting is mine] with the exception of those reviews which would support joint-use projects between school boards or for student safety.
  • Providing a new Rural and Northern Education Fund for this September to further enhance students’ learning experience in rural schools, with better programming such as French immersion, arts education and guidance counselling.
  • Providing increased funding for co-operation between school boards including planning and building ‎joint-use schools.
  • Continuing investments in broadband speed, special education supports and experiential learning opportunities for rural and Northern students.”
