Waterloo Elementary considers offering  Secondary 1

The resolution prompted a discussion among the commissioners. “I question where this might lead us,” one commissioner said, pointing to the hard work done by high schools to create a positive learning environment for Secondary 1 students, and wondering if there were a double standard between the schools of eastern and western sectors of the ETSB. “It’s a concern that should be looked at,” the commissioner added.
