During the June 5 Forest Area Family of Schools Transition Committee Meeting, Lambton Kent District School Board Superintendent Gary Girardi provided the committee with an update on the land acquisition process for the Kindergarten to Grade 12 school.
The land acquisition process is ongoing; however, the LKDSB remains committed to securing an appropriate site to consolidate students from Aberarder Central School, Bosanquet Central School, Kinnwood Central School and North Lambton Secondary School into a Kindergarten to Grade 12 school. The LKDSB is looking to acquire approximately 18-20 acres for the new school.
In January 2018, the Ministry of Education announced a $27.4 million investment to build the new school and create 24 new child care spaces. The Ministry of Education remains supportive as the LKDSB continues the process for land acquisition.
The LKDSB is committed to moving forward with the project as soon as possible and appreciates the community's ongoing support of the land acquisition and transition process.
The next Transition Committee Meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 2 at 6 p.m. at Kinnwood Central Public School. Members of the public are invited to attend the meeting.
