Although I can’t seem to find an official press release, word has it that the proposed closure of 11 schools in Regina will no longer proceed. Since the announcement of the proposed closures, several parent associations have been critical about the plans of the Regina Public School Board.

For many in Regina, this will come as welcome news. However, the issue that prompted the school closure plan (decreased enrollments) still exists, and officials will need to be creative in addressing any shortfalls.
Update: OK, I found the official press release.
