Could G.P. Vanier Secondary School be replaced?
According to the proposed 2013 Five Year Capital Plan, it should be — at a cost of about $44.5 million.
In a Project Identification Report, four options were considered for the school — a seismic upgrade only, a renovation and seismic upgrade, a 1,250 partial replacement (retain shops), or a 1,250 capacity replacement school.
The replacement school option was chosen as the best one by School District 71 staff.
The Board of Education was expected to discuss the matter at its board meeting Tuesday and vote on whether to send the proposed 2013 Five Year Capital Plan on to the Ministry of Education.
