Schools facilities planning

School District #23 is in the process of updating its Long-Term Facility Plan.

The Central Okanagan School District is in the process of updating its Long-Term Facility Plan.

The plan will be driven by educational program requirements, community and enrolment demographics, school operating capacities, as well as the current condition of facilities.

The facility plan will provide a comprehensive rationale and business case for key local decisions related to future school grade configurations, specific school additions and renovations, replacement of aging schools, and requirement for new schools.

The comprehensive Long-Term Facility Plan is required by the Ministry of Education to support all future major capital investment decisions and approvals.

The school district will be hosting three community meetings to provide an opportunity for public input into the Long-Term Facility Plan:

• Thursday, Oct. 18, 6:30 p.m. for the Westside Zone at Mount Boucherie Secondary, in the multipurpose room

• Monday, Oct. 22, 6:30 p.m. for the Kelowna Area at Hollywood Road Education Services, room 1

• Thursday, Oct. 25, 6:30 p.m. for the Lake Country Zone at George Elliot Secondary School in the Community Gym.

This is School District 23’s second round of public consultation meetings. Please join in to learn more and provide your thoughts to the Board of Education for the long-term vision of our district.
