School District #44 should never sell off its assets. People supposedly in the know say that all the upcoming densification will bring more families into the District. I believe this to be incorrect.However, assets must be retained or senior levels of government will take them away forever.
Keeping surplus properties justs wastes money.Sell them or lease them, but get back to focussing on education fast.
Keep the land don't sell off todevelopers. What is surplus?All the new condos being built,there are families purchasing orrenting, more children for theschool system.Turn vacant schools into schoolsfor special needs students.therewould be a mass exodus from private schools back to public schools.
Long term lease or parks. No one can be absolutely sure that we won't need these sites for school purposes 25, 50 or 100 years from now.
Found a link to the School Board's survey on the surplus school land. Land Survey Link
