Heartbreaking to anyone who’s attended public school, or high school in the area.
The Upper Canada District School Board has announced a proposed mass school closure that could result in 16 schools done by the end of this school year.
It is a proposal – no final decision has been made yet. So there could be hope?
During tomorrow night’s board meeting in Brockville, trustees with the Upper Canada School Board(UCDSB) will go over a massive report that highlights possible school closures that could in turn help increase provincial funding.
