Board commits to transparent communication with community about Parry Sound JK-12 build
Following through on its commitment to provide accurate, transparent and timely communications to stakeholders, Near North District School Board (NNDSB) will be publishing information about the new school on the JK-12 Parry Sound build section of the capital planning page of the board website. Anyone interested in the build will find Board reports and minutes, the build committee’s terms of reference, media releases and the compilation of questions and answers from the community feedback survey.
The purpose of the page, which will be updated regularly, is to hold news, details and questions/answers about the build in one place.
NNDSB has held three information sessions for various stakeholders. There have been presentations to the Town of Parry Sound council, a session with the architect for the public and a session for staff who will be affected by the project.
Following the community presentation about the new build, the community was invited to share questions and concerns in an online form, which closed Thursday afternoon. The information is being compiled by theme (to avoid repeated questions) and questions and answers will be posted online by July 16, 2021.
This is just one more way this board is demonstrating its commitment to excellence in communication and excellence to relationships – two of the four priorities in the Multi-Year Strategic Plan (MYSP). The community has been waiting many years for the Parry Sound build to happen and this board is motivated to see students in a new school capable of providing a 21st century education.
