US Travel Ban to be discussed at next Kootenay Columbia School Board meeting

The Kootenay Columbia School District will be discussing US President Donald Trump's controversial Travel Ban at their next meeting.

Chair Terry Ferworn says several school districts, especially on the coast, have been calling for a travel ban, and no US travel until things improve...and that would effect students here, with our proximity to the border.

She says they can make an independent decision if they're not given guidance by the BC School Trustees Association or the Ministry of Education.

As a district, she says they would be very unhappy to have students detained at the border, due to the latest policy.
