Conversations about the future of Cold Lake public schools is continuing.
Next Monday, the Cold Lake Configuration Committee will be hosting two online consultation sessions where they will present three options for the configuration of Cold Lake’s public schools, and look for input from parents and residents about which option meets the needs of the community.
In March, the committee identified three potential options for configuring Northern Lights Public Schools in Cold Lake. The committee was planning to hold staff and community consultations, but that was postponed when schools were closed last spring due to COVID-19.
These consultation sessions are the next step in the configuration process for Cold Lake public schools. The process began in June 2019 with parent and staff information sessions. At that time, NLPS identified that based on enrollment projections and the current configuration and capacity of its Cold Lake schools, several schools would be at or over capacity within 2-3 years.
The consultation sessions will be presented using Zoom. One will take place at 11 a.m. and the other will take place at 7 p.m. To ensure all participants have ample opportunity to contribute, we are capping participation in each session at 30 people. Additional sessions may be added if the interest in participating exceeds the session caps.
To register, please complete the Cold Lake Configuration Consultation Registration Form prior to noon on Friday, November 6, 2020. We will confirm session registration by sending participants a Zoom link for their session before Sunday, November 8, 2020.
To fully participate in the consultation session each participant should have their own device (computer, laptop, tablet or phone) with a microphone and camera.
In November 2019, the Cold Lake Configuration Committee was formed.
