Earlier this year, the SSRSB planned to move Queens Adult High School into Liverpool Regional High School from its present location at Gorham Memorial School, and classes would take place after regular school hours. In May, the school board was granted funding, for the 2012-13 school year, from the Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning (NSSLA). This funding will help with the expense of an off-site location for the Adult High School.
Changes announced in March to the middle-level and senior-level alternate schools will remain in place for the 2012-13 school year. Students in the middle-level transition program will attend South Queens Junior High School while students in the senior-level alternate program will attend Liverpool Regional High School.
“These programs are extremely important to us and to the community. We strive to provide the best education and the most program choice to meet the needs of all students, within our mandate and budget,” said, Nancy Pynch-Worhtylake, Superintendent of Schools.
The SSRSB must examine all efficiencies as more cuts to education are expected next year. As such, all alternate and adult education programs will be reviewed again for 2013-14.
