- Partnerships encourage active transportation -
A tripartite agreement among the Greater Essex County District School Board, the Town of Tecumseh and Essex County will help students at Tecumseh Vista Academy be more active.
The partners have shared the cost of building a walking trail that connects the school to McAuliffe Park and the McAuliffe Woods conservation area. This improves access for students to the town recreation facilities. Since the school opened in 2011, buses have had to transport students to use the ball diamonds, soccer field or tennis courts, which are in sight, across two farms fields. The trail also provides a safe way for some students to now walk to school.
The town, the county and the school board will celebrate the completion of the trail on Monday, January 19th with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11:00 a.m. at the head of the trail, near the school.
