What is Sector Planning?
Inglewood Elementary School and Westmount Junior High School are among
20 schools under review in the Central Sector. The likely outcome of this process
is that certain schools will be targeted for closure with the aim of amalgamating
students into larger schools in the sector.
from http://sectorreview.bangthetable.com: “Sector Planning is about managing
student space. The Edmonton Public School Board, EPSB is looking at all schools
in the district to address areas of low enrolment, low class size, and surplus school
Sectors are geographic areas of the city, and the three sectors under review are
Central, South Central and West 1. Possible outcomes of a sector review include
status quo, consolidation or reconfiguration of schools in a sector, or closure.”
The consulting firm hired by EPSB has already collected community
questionnaires in April, and according to their website, they will be holding public
community forums in May and June. These were not yet scheduled as of our press
time. Dates that concern Inglewood School and Westmount School will be posted
at www.inglewoodcl.com as soon as they are available.
Please contact Lil @ 780-481-6519 or [email protected] if you are interested
in joining forces with Inglewood Community League to help advocate for our
neighbourhood through this important process.
