Recommendation expected Thursday night in Pictou County school review process

A fourth public meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday night at Pictou Academy as part of the school review process in northwestern Pictou County.

The Chignecto-Central Regional School Board says the School Options Committee will present its final recommendation to attendees.

The schools being reviewed are Pictou Elementary, Dr. Thomas McCulloch Junior High, and Pictou Academy.

Northumberland Regional High School is also included as a potential receiving school.

Pictou Elementary is a P3 school, with the lease expiring in 2020, and a recommendation from the school board to the province is due by April 30th.

The Department of Education will have the final say on what happens.
