September 18, 2018 – Please note that the Near North District School Board has not made any further changes after the Board motion adopted in October 2013 to proceed with the construction of a JK-12 school on the existing Parry Sound High School site. A business case to was submitted to the Ministry of Education under the school consolidation capital program. In March 2015 the Ministry of Education approved the business case that was submitted for a JK-12 consolidation and funding eligibility was confirmed. The Board continues to work with affected stakeholders, community partners and various levels of government to ensure that the project proceeds in accordance with all legal and legislative requirements.
As with all projects of this nature it is imperative that the Board review all new developments and changes in circumstances as they arise. If a review of any such information results in a change it would be confirmed by way of Board motion and shared with affected parties and stakeholders through the approved communication process. The NNDSB is committed to moving forward with this project in a fiscally responsible manner that meets the needs of the students, parents and the community.
