New home possible for alternate school

The Golden Alternate School may have a new home in the future.

The Golden Alternate School may have a new home in the future.

The news of the possible move has come down now that the Golden/Field RCMP detachment is preparing for its own move into a new building.

The current home of the detachment is in a building owned by the local school district.

Paul Carriere, Superintendent of Schools for the district, said the district is looking at the possibility of making the move but said nothing is confirmed at the present moment.

“We are looking at the building but there has not been an assessment on the building done yet,” he said.

Even though nothing is set in stone yet Carriere did explain that rather than renting a building it did make sense to move the school back into a building the district already owns.

Once the assessment is complete, the district will then make a decision on how best to proceed. Carriere explained that even if a move were going to be made, it would not likely happen until the fall of 2013
