ADSB Approves Recommendations for Blind River Public School and Sir James Dunn P.S. in Wawa, ON

Blind River Public School

Based on the Initial Staff Report, School Information Profile feedback, public input and the Senior Administration Final Report, the Algoma District School Board approved the recommendation brought forward by Senior Administration that Blind River Public School be closed and that the JK-8 school population, staff and program currently housed at Blind River Public School be relocated to a JK-12 facility.

The recommendation was contingent upon the Algoma District School Board applying for and receiving Ministry of Education Capital Funding and that staff would first investigate the option of securing a new JK-12 facility before making a decision to relocate as a JK-12 facility on the site of W.C. Eaket. Capital funding would also still be required for a retro-fit solution and discussions with the municipality would need to take place in the interest of establishing a mutually beneficial partnership for further use of outdoor space. In the event that sufficient funding was not approved, students would remain at their current sites pending further consultation in regard to future options.
