Avonmore – The Upper Canada District School Board is pleased to announce that the Ministry of Education of Ontario has confirmed its intention to provide funding for capital upgrades across the Board. Glengarry-Prescott-Russell MPP Grant Crack visited Roxmore Public School in Avonmore, Ontario this morning to share the Ministry’s intentions to provide the following support:
- Funding to build an addition at Roxmore PS in order to accommodate additional students from North Stormont PS
- Funding to consolidate Cornwall CVS and St. Lawrence SS into one secondary grades 7-12 school, to be located in Cornwall
- Funding to consolidate Toniata PS and Commonwealth PS (with Prince of Wales PS) into a new elementary school in South Brockville
“These upgrades provide our students with the necessary support they require to continue on their educational path in the best facilities available,” said Chair Jeff McMillan of the Upper Canada District School Board. “These capital upgrades will ensure that there are ample opportunities for as many students to achieve academic success as possible.”
The Upper Canada District School Board would like to thank the Ministry of Education for these investments into UCDSB schools, ensuring that they have the tools required to Prepare All Students for a Successful Life.
