COUNCILLOR INQUIRIES

 

School Drop-Off Construction Program (E. Gibbons)

 

 

 

During the Council deliberation on the 2012 - 2014 Capital Budget, the School Drop-Off Construction Program was not approved. This Program was a partnership with the Edmonton Public Schools, Edmonton Catholic Schools and the City to address pick-up and drop-off activities at schools. It had been active since the early 1990s. The Program enabled the City to contribute a part of the funding and staff resources to support the planning, design and construction of improvements to pick-up and drop-off sites. Usually each school board identified the one school per year in their system that needed this work.

I would like to inquire as to the possibility of reintroducing this Program to Council and if the School Boards are still open to a partnership.
