Lambton Kent District School Board Trustees reviewed an approximately $18 million re-envisioned design for Chatham-Kent Secondary School to modernize the learning spaces, as well as increase opportunities for collaboration and engagement. The re-envisioning exercise includes a five-year, phase-in construction process that will include a new cafeteria; learning commons; theatre; fitness room; outdoor courtyard for special needs students; and renovated classrooms and staff areas. Improvements also include a refreshed facade to modernize and improve natural lighting; installation of mechanical upgrades, as well as a transformation of the bussing and parking areas to improve traffic flow.
The LKDSB will apply its Capital Improvement Funding to complete the project. It is anticipated the project will begin in Spring 2019.
