Creighton parents and taxpayers will soon have a chance to weigh in on one of the most consequential educational issues ever to face the local area. The Creighton School Division has announced public meetings to discuss the potential high school program at Creighton Community School. Parents of Creighton school students will be invited to attend a meeting at the school on Tuesday, December 9. All voters of the Creighton School Division will then be welcome to attend a second meeting at the school the following day, Wednesday, December 10. Today's Reminder carries an advertisement with full details. The meetings will come days after the Creighton School Board's planned meeting with the Flin Flon School Board, slated for December 4. The Creighton School Board will announce by January 15 whether grades 10, 11 and 12 will be added to Creighton school. Copies of the report concluding that it is feasible to add the grades are available at the school. A recent phone survey conducted by The Reminder suggested that 60 per cent of Creighton and Denare Beach residents support the proposed high school. Of 45 residents phoned at random, 27 were in favour of the concept.
