Work pregresses on modernization of two Fort Macleod schools

Work is continuing in preparation of construction to begin on the modernization of W.A. Day and F.P. Walshe schools in Fort Macleod.
Livingstone Range School Board was updated Oct. 14 by associate superintendent of business services Jeff Perry.
“We have had multiple meetings regarding that facility,” Perry said.
Those meeting have included meetings on the finance report; progress of hazard abatement; government requirements for approving 60 per cent; and working toward 90 per cent completion of the drawings.
There have been discussions on tendering. In November the remainder of the sub-contractors will be informed to commence work in late January or early February.
The modular unit for the temporary library site at W.A. Day school has also arrived.
“The high school is going really well,” Perry said.
“Indications from the administrative team – all is well,” Perry later added of both schools. “They have the space they need for what they need to do.”
Trustee John McKee asked if the principals have looked at the plans to make sure what is proposed is functional.
Perry responded the principals have been included.
“The two administrators have been fully informed throughout the time,” Perry said, noting they have sat in on the meetings. “They gave a lot of input.”
“The principals set the guiding principles,” superintendent Dave Driscoll said.
“The principals have been well-informed for sure,” Driscoll later added. “It’s a good process.”
Closed session
The board began its meeting by going into closed session for its pre-audit meeting with Darren Adamson of Young Parkyn McNab chartered accountants, and also to meet with Macleod MP John Barlow.
