September 18, 2018 – Please note that at this time the Near North District School Board has not made any changes with respect to the previously approved Board motion to proceed with the construction of a new elementary school on the W. J. Fricker site. An application to proceed with the construction of a new elementary school was submitted to the Ministry of Education in accordance with the required “Capital Construction Approval Process”. The Ministry has approved the scope of the project based upon programming and space requirements submitted by staff. The Board is currently preparing Request for Proposal documentation required in order to secure an architect to proceed with design and construction drawings.
As with all projects of this nature it is imperative that the board review all 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.
