EPAR01 School closures reconsidered

New Sarum PS and Springfield PS to remain open

Tuesday, November 26, 2019 – New Sarum PS and Springfield PS will remain open after Thames Valley Trustees voted Tuesday to rescind motions previously approved by the Board in May 2017 to close the schools.
New Sarum and Springfield were among five schools Trustees originally decided to close after Administration conducted a significant Pupil Accommodation Review (EPAR-01) of 11 elementary schools in Elgin and Middlesex counties. EPAR-01 also recommended building new schools in Belmont and St. Thomas.
Associate Director Jeff Pratt noted that the 2019 Capital Priority business cases already submitted to the Ministry of Education to build the new schools will be revised and resubmitted.
