Langley School District plans meetings about Willoughby

The Langley School District has sent a letter to students on the Willoughby slope about two consultation meetings happening May 11.

The school communities will remain with current boundaries and configurations for September 2015, explained superintendent Suzanne Hoffman.

For September 2016, the district is looking for input from the community on "probable" changes, she said.

For September 2016, the district is exploring a K-6 configuration for elementary schools, a Grade 7/8 configuration for Yorkson Creek Middle School and to maintain Grades 9-12 at R.E. Mountain Secondary School.

"The district is very aware of the concerns that parents have with respect to the fluctuating circumstances around your children’s’ schools. There is a commitment, on the part of the district, to continue to work with the community in an open, honest and transparent manner in order to seek the best possible solutions," Hoffman said.

To gather input on these changes, the district is planning meetings on Monday, May 11 at Lynn Fripps Elementary, 21020 83rd Ave., with the first meeting at 1 p.m. and the second at 6:30 p.m.

At the meetings, people in the affected areas can find out information on the proposed plan and provide staff with feedback. Staff will also have information regarding current and projected enrolments as well as possible changes to some school catchments.
