Rescinding school plan a sound move

the decision of current trustees to rescind the old facilities plan was financially sound.

To the Editor,

Despite what some candidates for school trustee say, the decision of current trustees to rescind the old facilities plan was financially sound.

Assuming that there was a buyer who could pay for NDSS and the district facilities that would have been sold along with NDSS (District Administration Centre, maintenance yards, bus yard, Rotary Bowl and Serauxman Stadium) the high school replacement part of the plan alone would have required our school district to borrow $15 million before the costs of replacing the district facilities were added in.
