Capital Funding Announcement
 
The Greater Essex County District School Board has received capital funding grants to build two new schools.
 
We have received $15.23 million to build a permanent home for 645 students at Giles Campus French Immersion Public School.  This comes as a result of the 2011 Program and Accommodation Review recommendations for South Windsor that created a site for French Immersion students living north of E.C. Row Expressway. The students are currently learning at the former W.D. Lowe Secondary School.
 
We have also received $15.3 million to build a new D.M. Eagle Public School for 651 students following the Program and Accommodation Review recommendations made for the North Shore in 2013. Both schools will also be built with 4 child care rooms.
 
Minister of Education Liz Sandals announced this morning in Toronto a number of capital funding project grants for 30 new schools and 26 additions and renovations across the province.
