Comprehensive School. Currently the school is operating at 53 per cent utilization,” said South

East Cornerstone board chair Audrey Trombley.

“However, once discussions began it was apparent that all the partners had facility and operational needs within the city,” said Mayor Roy Ludwig. “Finding ways to address these needs together allows for the most efficient use of valuable fiscal as well as human resources.”

“This is a great opportunity to provide 21st century learning opportunities to students in Estevan and area,” said Holy Family board chair Bruno Tuchscherer.

“This is a win-win opportunity for all the partners involved as well

as the residents of Estevan,” said Police Chief Paul Ladouceur.

All the partners are inviting the public to attend an information meeting, hosted by the two school divisions, on Jan. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Estevan Comprehensive School.

The Mercury will have more details as they become available.
