Plans, new name for Athol school

A draft preliminary floor plan for the proposed addition and renovations at Athol Central Public School, with an estimated budget of $781,000, was approved, contingent on Ministry of Education funding. Estimated costs cover enhancements for programs, accommodation and the site, as well as fees and contingencies.
The Hastings and Prince Edward District Board members approved recommendations to close South Marysburgh School and declare it surplus effective June 2011. Athol Central becomes a JK to Grade 8 school effective September 2011.  The integration and transition process began in September 2010 with the formation of the Integration Committee.
