Millarville School - Reconfiguration

In May 2018, Millarville Community School submitted a request to the Board of Trustees to consider grade reconfiguration at Millarville Community School from K-8 to a K-9 configuration.  In early May 2018, School Council initiated a survey of parents in the Millarville community.  A total of 102 response were received from a community of approximately 120 families.  96% of families expressed their desire to keep their child at MCS for grade 9, their primary reasons cited were: keeping their child in a consistent environment during the junior high years (grade 7-9) and making a more natural transition to high school.  This request resulted in a report that was prepared by administration as per Policy 15.  Board members studied and discussed the information provided in this report.

The Board passed a “Notice of Motion” to change the grade configuration at Millarville School to K-9 from the current K-8 structure.  The board will follow its Policy 15 – School Closure / Reconfiguration and convene a public consultation process that will conclude with a final decision being made at the first regular board meeting in November 2019.
