Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board meeting for September 23, 2013

It’s decision day for King George School as HWDSB Trustees ratify their decision to demolish the historic school and neighbouring Parkview Elementary School for a new high school complex as part of the Board’s “Plan B” after Hamilton City Council voted against partnering on a joint high school and recreation centre across the road at the Scott Park site.

Live coverage starts at 6:30pm

Tonight’s main agenda item is the ratification of the Board’s 6-5 vote to demolish King George as part of a plan to build a new high school in the location. All it takes is one trustee who was in favour to change their mind and the Board’s looking for a “Plan C”.

We should get some idea of how the Board will response to City Council’s movement towards a heritage designation for the building.
