School District 73 - Kamloops/Thompson

Post by admin » Sun Sep 18, 2011 5:42 pm

According to a recent edition of the Kamloops This Week newspaper, School District 73 expected 14,000 students returning to class this fall. The Kamloops Thompson School District covers the City of Kamloops, and the municipalities of Chase, Barriere, Logan Lake, and Clearwater.

The district currently has 33 elementary, 10 senior secondary schools, 1 middle school, 2 alternate education programs and 1 distance education school. Enrolment in the schools has been decreasing and is predicted to continue until 2013 when it is projected to level off at around 13,000 students. Declining enrolment has brought significant challenges for the district to address. The district, in consultation with the community, has had some very difficult decisions to make, resulting in a reconfiguring of a number of schools this past year and the closure of 3 schools.

If you have any questions, or information that may help others with children that will be attending schools in this area, please feel free to add your comments.
