Information on the Accommodation Review for the Lakefield District Secondary & Intermediate Schools
Accommodation Review: Lakefield District Secondary School and Lakefield Intermediate School.
The Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board has approved the establishment of a joint Board/community accommodation review committee to consider the future of Lakefield District Secondary School and Lakefield Intermediate School.
This committee will hold a number of public meetings to discuss the student accommodation needs at these schools. Throughout this process, the review committee will share information from the community that will inform the final administrative recommendations on the future of the schools.
In its initial report to the Board, administration is recommending that Lakefield District Secondary School be closed, and that students attend Thomas A. Stewart Secondary School beginning in September 2016. Current Grade 7 students at Lakefield Intermediate would remain at the school until June 2017.
At the conclusion of the Accommodation Review process, the Board of Trustees will consider administration’s final recommendations before making any decision on the future of the schools. This is expected in February or March of 2016.
The Board, and the Lakefield District Secondary School – Lakefield Intermediate School Accommodation Review Committee, invites parents and community members to attend, and to make presentations at the following committee meetings:
Monday, November 9, 2015 (6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Lakefield DSS)
Monday, December 7, 2015 (6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Lakefield DSS)
Wednesday, January 20, 2016 (6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Lakefield DSS)
In addition to these public input meetings, the committee will also hold working group meetings. Although these meetings will be open to the public to attend, they will be for committee work and discussion only.
We thought it important to share with you the accompanying information regarding the review process and what it means for these two schools.
