We have broken ground for the new Leamington District Secondary School and construction is underway! It will be ready for students and staff in September, 2017.It's exciting for us to be able to embrace students' needs and expectations rather than conform them to meet the limitations of an older building.
LDSS will be the 10th new school our Board has built since 2006 and we have completed major renovations at 4 others. We have also received funding for 3 more new builds which are all currently in the planning stages: a new French Immersion school in Windsor's core to replace Giles Campus FIPS; a new dual-track (English/French Immersion) school will replace D.M. Eagle PS in the Tecumseh/Lakeshore area; and a new K-12 school in Kingsville.
It's quite probable that we will have 4 projects under construction at the same time, which is a credit to our professional staff and of course the Ministry of Education, which has identified and acted on our needs. We are literally building tomorrow together.
