All three school closure bylaws were defeated. The Kinnikinnick and Sechelt elementary bylaws were defeated unanimously, while the Davis Bay closure bylaw was defeated 2-4. The Davis Bay bylaw generated the most debate, with Trustees weighing the pros and cons of its closure.
After the bylaws were defeated, the following motion was made, and passed unanimously:
“That effective for the 2010-11 school year, the K-7 program and staff of Sechelt Elementary be amalgamated into Kinnikinick Elementary pending renovations, repairs and the pursuit of a Neighbourhood of Learning at the Sechelt Elementary site.”
