SD 60 in early stages of development for two new schools

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – School District 60 is in the early stages of building two more schools, an elementary school in the northeast and a middle school in the northwest areas of the City.

The District recently purchased two pieces of land, the first is across from the Fort St. John  Hospital for the elementary school as well as the adjacent site next to ‘Ma’ Murray for the middle school.

“We are currently in the early stages of development for both of these purposed schools,” said Superintendent Dave Sloan. “It’s likely that the elementary school would be the project that is completed first as we are further along in the process on that one.”

The two new schools would help ease the District which is experiencing a surplus of students, as all schools are at capacity.

“We have yet to be approved by the Ministry of Education,” added Sloan. “There protocol is that in order for a new school to be built you have to meet a certain level of students and we have certainly passed that threshold as the new Margaret ‘Ma’ Murray school is already full.”

The District has yet to officially announce plans for the schools but Sloan expects those discussions to pick up once Margaret ‘Ma’ Murray is up and running come summer time.
