Dave Rutherford, superintendent of facilities with the Hastings Prince Edward District School Board, said the policy would mean some additional steps boards would have to go through in terms of sharing information with the community.I can't see boards having any other response than this when asked what they think of the draft policy. As has been pointed out here in posts and comments previously, good school boards already conduct much of the consultation urged in the draft policy.
“If we were planning to build or renovate and existing facility, we would be required to communicate with community partners,” Rutherford said.
He said he and other board officials didn’t have any concerns with the proposed policy.
“It makes sense,” Rutherford said.
