The Public School Board has laid out the next steps in the review of General Amherst High School, Harrow District High School, Harrow Public School, Kingsville District High School and Western Secondary School.

Last spring, a review committee recommended two scenarios to the Director of Education for the group of county schools to deal with empty space.

The first would see Western Secondary School maintained as a special education school and expand programming, community hubs created in Amherstburg, Harrow and Kingsville, maintain Harrow District High School at present location until a new JK-12 school is built, build a new JK-12 school in Kingsville and maintain General Amherst High School.

The other would see the move of Western Secondary School and transition those students to General Amherst High School as a separate program in a newly built school in Amherstburg on a board and town approved site, the creation of community hubs in Amherstburg, Harrow and Kingsville, they will establish a JK-12 school in Harrow and build a new JK-12 school in Kingsville.

On Friday September 11th after 3pm, the director’s recommendations will be available on the board website. The director’s recommendations will then be presented to trustees at the regular meeting of the Board on September 15th at 7pm.

A final decision will then be made by trustees at a special meeting of the Board on October 13th at 7pm
