Elwood provided some history about the Review Process. On September 26, 2011 the school was advised of the school board’s intent to review. Shortly after the review committee was formed and they have been meeting monthly with the school board. They advised the school board that Pangman is a growing community with oil in the area, new Water Treatment Plant, Daycare, Community Kitchen, new residents and more.
The South East Cornerstone School Board have been out to tour our school. The feedback received was that they felt the school is in good condition.
There is an important meeting at The South East Cornerstone School Division office in Weyburn on Thursday, January 19, 2012 at 2 pm. The Review Committee will be doing presentations at this meeting and the School Board will be putting forth motions to vote on. The Review Committee hopes that the motion to end the school review process will be voted on. They have asked that as many people as possible from Pangman come out to attend this meeting.
If there is a motion to close Pangman School then the Review Committee said they have an option to apply for a School of Opportunity Status.
They hope that many residents of Pangman will come out for this important meeting in Weyburn on Thursday, January 19, 2012 at 2:00 pm at the School Board Office, 80A 18th St., Weyburn, Saskatchewan.
