A happy day for the LMST community. I offer my congratulations to all who mobilized so effectively around creating and maintaining momentum with the site decision. The following are the next steps now that the site has been approved. I can confirm that Ste. Anne/Beaufort is the starting point for relocating students. Board staff are already at work looking at learning spaces and needs.
School Steering team being established;
Anticipate its formation before the end of October;
The next step in the process is for province to let RFP for design consulting services;
Upon notification of award of the consultant the School Steering team will convene;
School Steering Team meets to advise design team during design process;
Relocation of the students from the existing site for the start of the 2016 school year;
HRSB developing relocation plan for students in advance of construction;
HRSB will continue to communicate with community throughout the process.
I’m sure this is just the first of many messages to come. Please share with anyone you think might be interested. I’ve established and will add names to a dedicated LMST list as we proceed.Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to be added.
