Another ARC story

I'm always interested in seeing how accommodation review committees are covered and their ensuring recommendations to trustees across the province.
See this different example from the Simcoe County District School Board, a board featured previously here but this ARC deals with schools in the City of Orillia. The committee recommended closing two older schools located within 800 metres of each other and building a new school facility that would replace the two former buildings. It did so without recommending which site the new school should be built on-- Orillia District Collegiate and Vocational Institute or Park Street Collegiate Institute. The committee recommended relevant upgrades to the third school in the ARC, Twin Lakes. Trustees are scheduled to hear from the public at the board's Midhurst office in the coming months with a decision this June.
