Lakehead Public Schools Renewal

Jim McCuaig Education Centre

The Lakehead District School Board is committed to the success and well-being of every student.

An initial staff report was presented by administration to the Lakehead District School Board Trustees on February 9 with details on proposed North Side and South Side Renewal Plans, as well as a proposed Renewal Plan for Hyde Park/Kingsway Park.

The plan presents a vision for the future that is focused on renewing and reinvigorating the Lakehead Public Schools system through school consolidations, renovations and new facility construction.

The proposed school renewal plan is based solidly on:

  • Academic excellence, personal success and well-being for every student;
  • Safe, equitable and inclusive school communities;
  • Cutting-edge technology in every classroom;
  • Significant investments in learning environments and facilities.
