Upcoming Name Change of the Secondary School in Creston

At an Open Meeting of the Board of Education on Tuesday, June 15, 2021, the Board voted unanimously in favour of the following resolution:

THAT, effective immediately, the regular usage (i.e. non-legal usage) by the District of the name of the secondary school in Creston (including the signage at the school) no longer include “Prince Charles”, and, rather the school be referred to temporarily as “Creston Valley” Secondary School.

AND THAT Staff investigate the process for the name change of the school and report back to the Board forthwith.
