Funding Approved for Herman Family of Schools
- McGregor & McCallum schools to close -
The Greater Essex County District School Board is very pleased that the Ministry of Education is investing in better schools for improved learning in Windsor and Essex County.
Funding announced today by Minister Liz Sandals will allow the GECDSB to fulfill the recommendations of the Herman Family of Schools Program and Accommodation Review approved by the Board of Trustees in November 2012.
The motion called for the closure of Percy P. McCallum P.S. and the transition of students to W.F. Herman S.S., which will become a K-12 school. Gordon McGregor P.S. will also be closed with that school community transitioning to the former McCallum building.
The money announced by the Minister will cover the cost of renovations at Herman needed to accommodate the elementary students. A design will be developed over the next 6 months before the project will go out for tender.
