Pacific Coast School moving
People with aspirations to finish their secondary schooling in a less traditional fashion may have a better chance at doing so in 2011 with the relocation of Pacific Coast School into a larger space.
On January 5 there was a meeting between members of the board who went over the expenditure summary, and discussed a possible new location for Pacific Coast School and different options for it.
The board found a possible location, and approved bylaw No.2-2011, which is expected to lead to the signing of a lease for a space at the Ocean Centre Mall after the current lease expires. The lease of this space would last for five years, until June 30, 2010 with an option to renew it for a further term if the board is satisfied with the lease.
Pacific Coast School has proven to be a triumph with getting people who would not usually be successful in graduating to complete their schooling. Because of this, there has been a higher demand of people wishing to enter the school, with the school’s principal, Sandy Pond, estimating that there has been around a 30 per cent increase in enrolment in 2010. This caught the board’s interest and had them beginning to look into options for a larger premise in order to allow more students to attend.
Pacific Coast School offers a different style of programs than traditional schooling that successfully meets the need of learners and helps them succeed with graduation.
