Due to the significant growth in the Bedford West and Bedford South areas, the Halifax Regional School Board has had to come up with short-term solutions for the schools in these areas.

According to Imagine Our Schools consultant Maureen O’Shaughnessy, the first priority is to deal with the overcrowding issue in order to accomodate all students.

The purpose of the “Imagine Our Schools” meeting was to review the findings of the background reports on two different families of schools in HRM (CP Allen and Halifax West). A group of five consultants observed the state of the different schools and their demographics. The idea is to have a 10-year facilities master plan.

Bedford South School in Papermill subdivision has added a portable in order to try to accomodate the overpopulation of that school.

The second priority is to deal with run-down conditions of some schools. A replacement school would be needed, and for this to happen enrollment has to be steady or increasing (as it is in the Sunnyside schools).

The third priority is given to program renewal, to specialty programs, lunchrooms, gymnasiums, etc.
