Nanaimo Schools To Close

School Board Closes
Four Nanaimo Schools

After over 80 days of public consultation Nanaimo School Board Trustees voted to close four Nanaimo Schools.

To be closed in 2012 are NDSS and Woodlands, both secondary schools and Mount Benson and Dufferin Crescent both elementary schools will be closed this June.
Rutherford elementary and Woodbank will remain open.

School district staff had recommended closing the six schools over a four year period to deal with 1800 empty seats and aging buildings within the system. The plan would save $1.7 million annually.
