A Barton-Hill Park high school transition meeting is set for Wednesday.
It’s the second meeting of the South Transition Advisory Committee, which is comprised of representatives from school council, students, parents, staff, transportation and the community. The meeting is March 19 at 4:30 p.m. at Barton Secondary School, 75 Palmer Rd.
In 2012, after a 15-month closure review, trustees voted to shutter Barton and Hill Park in 2015, when a new high school would be opening in the Rymal-Upper Sherman area. With enrolment falling faster than expected, Hill Park is now closing in June, while Barton will stay open until 2016, at which point students will move to the new school.
