Strait Regional School board notes

The Strait Regional School board wants to keep three schools in Inverness County open, according to the CBC.

The board has voted to tell the Education Department it wants to keep the Bayview Education Centre in Port Hood and Dalbrae Academy in Mabou after the P-3 leases expire.  It also wants the Whycocomagh Education Centre to remain open.  Enrollments in the schools have been cut in half in recent years but the school options committee wants the classes to remain and options for renting out the space outside of school hours are explored.
