Mini capital update

The latest in capital-related coverage that's crossed the desk.
  • The Hanover Post on a new option presented to a review in the Chesley / Hanover area;
  • The St. Catharines Standard on the District School Board of Niagara's continuing need to look at enrolment and capacity;
  • The Dunnville Chronicle on how a school-closure decision rests in the hands of trustees; and,
  • The Simcoe Reformer on a pending discussion and potential review of Norfolk County's five high schools.
All of which, in response to the occasional comment here and elsewhere, goes to show that the school-review and school-closure decisions won't be suspended during the pending provincial election campaign. Without a dramatic turnaround in fertility and birth rates these are conversations that will continue to happen, particularly as the stock of school buildings continues to age.
