Frequently Asked Questions
Why is a redirection necessary?
At this time, the opening of Milton SW #12 has been postponed to September 2024, as construction has yet to commence, and the Board awaits final approvals to begin construction.
The current five (5) Milton #12 ps holding schools are witnessing pressures that will preclude them from accommodating ongoing growth generated from the future catchment area. Therefore using Rattlesnake Point will allow for these students to be housed at one community as opposed to several.
What is the construction status of Milton SW #12?
The Board is awaiting final approvals to award the tender for the construction of the Milton #12 ps. Once approvals are granted, the Board has the necessary approvals to begin construction immediately afterwards.
