The Grande Yellowhead Public School Division revised their 3-Year Capital Plan at a board meeting in Edson last night.
The 3-year Capital Plan was initially approved by the Board of Trustees in March and prioritized the full modernization of Grand Trunk High School and Evansview School in Evansburg, as well as Wildwood School in Wildwood.
At a special board meeting last night, the Trustees approved a revision to the plan to amalgamate all three schools into Evansburg, with a full modernization of Grand Trunk High School into a 500 student capacity facility from kindergarten to Grade 12.
Some of the factors considered in the decision were programming options, impact on community, past and projected enrollments, demographics, site constraints and transportation among others.
The decision comes after a number of community engagement sessions over the last few months. The Board will now forward the revised 3 Year Capital Plan to Alberta Education for their consideration.
