As part of our effort to offer different perspectives on the site selection process, the Cooperator will be producing a series of interviews with people who are working on defining what that process ought to look like. The first interview in this series took place on November 12, 2018 with Kent Smith, chair of the Musquodoboit Harbour & Area Chamber of Commerce & Civic Association. The Chamber has published a detailed report arguing that the new high school should be sited in Musquodoboit Harbour in order to provide students with access to all the services already available, from the rink to the hospital to the library. This video is 8 minutes long.
The Cooperator will be hosting this resource page to pull together information from all sources on the school site selection process to replace Eastern Shore District High School. We will be including information from the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, the Halifax Regional Education Center, the defunct Halifax Regional School Board, the Cooperator’s stories on the issue, and reports from grassroots groups and non-governmental organizations in the current catchment basin.
