VIDEO: Ontario Education Minister to move on New Tecumseth School

November 5, 2020 – Ontario’s Minister of Education is committed to moving forward with a new Separate school for the Treetops subdivision in New Tecumseth.

It’s been more than two-and-a-half years since the province approved the plan, but the Simcoe-Muskoka Catholic School Board is still waiting for a green light to tender the project.

Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson questioned Education Minister Stephen Lecce about the delays.

“Parents, students, staff and Trustees are beyond frustrated,” said Mr. Wilson. “COVID-19 has only heightened their exasperation.”  

“Will the Minister put an end to these delays?” Wilson asked Mr. Lecce. “Will he review this sorry situation and see that the necessary Approval to Proceed to tender is finalized?”
