At the SD20 Community Focus Group meeting held at RSS on March 3, attendees were put into groups, and were asked to answer three questions relating to the Facilities Report scenario 17B that they put forward (MacLean K-7, close Rossland Secondary, Jl Crowe 8 to 12, Castlegar Primary closed, Twin Rivers K-7, Late French Immersion to Robson, School Board Office to Trail Middle School, Online Learning and Blueberry Creek Community School to Castlegar Primary).
Rosslanders were very united and clear in their desire — turn RSS into a K-12 school and MacLean into a Neighbourhoods of Learning/Community centre, so that we can have long-term K-12 educational stability in our community.
The board has stated that they will also accept individual submissions of answers to the questions, which are due by the end of March. Even though it was very clear what Rossland wants, we must make it even clearer by having as many submissions as possible to the board. The more submissions, the more seriously they will take what we have to say. Attached is a Word document with the questions on it, that you can fill in and email to firstname.lastname@example.org, as well as the scenario that the questions refer to .
Again, these need to be in by Thursday! Please take 10 minutes to fill it out and send it in!
