The Board of School Division 51 has voted on the motion proposing a Middle School for Grand Forks and they voted against it. One board trustee voted for the proposal.

Previous meetings where this was discussed saw large audiences and based on this experience they apparently thought more people would attend this meeting as well. It was moved from their office across the street to Dr. D. A. Perley school gym but unfortunately not that many people showed up to hear the decision.

For more in depth video of these discussions watch the videos in this playlist at the youtube channel of gftv.ca. It contains the presentation of the parents from Christina Lake from last June as well as the full discussion from just before the deciding vote.
