Two local schools are expanding. The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) got the green light from the province to move forward with the major infrastructure projects. 

North Grenville District High School is getting a $7.2 million addition, which will create space for 221 more students. Kemptville Public School is getting a $2.7 million expansion to create 49 new child care spaces. 

MPP Steve Clark made the announcement today. 

He noted the nearly $10 million the government is providing for these critical projects in one of Eastern Ontario’s fastest-growing communities demonstrates the province’s commitment to supporting students, parents and educators. Clark says the government wants students to have the best learning environment possible.     

John McAllister, Chair of the UCDSB, says the board is thrilled about the funding. He explained more child care spaces and an ONLearning Centre at Kemptville Public School will allow the school to enhance relationships with parents and deepen connections with the community.
