The public school board in Windsor-Essex is once again looking at closing schools – but has plans to replace them in the near-term.

Trustees with the Greater Essex County District School Board have made the decision to close Eastwood and Parkview Public Schools pending approval by the Ministry of Education.

Trustees are making a business case for a new Kindergarten to Grade 8 School in east Windsor that would consolidate the two school communities.

Trustees met in a special session tonight to decide the outcome of the east Windsor/Forest Glade program and accommodation review.

Trustees also passed a motion to alter the boundaries of Forest Glade Public School, as of September, 2017.

This mainly pertains to students who need to be bused to school.
