Ministry Denies Funding For New School

The Ministry of Education is saying no to funding to build a new school in Emo to replace Donald Young School because the project doesn't  meet its criteria.

Rainy River District School Board Chair Mike Lewis says it doesn't mean the Board should give up trying secure the necessary funding.

One of the Ministry's criteria is for buildings that consolidate schools, something the board had voted against in February after conducting reviews of Donald Young, Sturgeon Creek and Crossroads Schools.
