Trustees Approve New LDSS Plans
- construction to begin this spring-
Another step has been taken toward the construction of a new Leamington District Secondary School.
The GECDSB Board of Trustees (at their January 19th public meeting) approved the design and the $32 million budget for the project, which is expected to be ready for students in September, 2017.
The school will be built on a 19 acre piece of land on Oak St., west of Sherk St. It will include 27 classrooms, 6 science rooms, a library, triple gym, theatre arts room, cafeteria, 2 culinary arts rooms, and transportation and construction technical areas.
The design and budget must be approved by the Ministry of Education. After a general contractor is identified following the tender process, construction is expected to begin in April or May.
