The Ministry of Education announced today that the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) will receive $6.26 million in capital funding for major additions and renovations at Cameron Street Public School and Mountain View Elementary School in Collingwood. On Oct. 20 the Ministry also announced funding for a three-room child care addition at Chris Hadfield Public School in Bradford. These projects were capital priority business cases submitted by the SCDSB to the Ministry of Education in July 2016.
The additions at the Collingwood schools will help address enrolment pressures currently experienced in the area as a result of population growth. The child care addition in Bradford will provide 49 new licensed child care spaces.
