SUMMERLAND - The province is spending $1.1 million to upgrade the aging Summerland Secondary School.
The renovation will include an upgrade of the school’s exterior and the roof will be replaced, according to a media release announcing the capital funding.
The Okanagan Skaha School District will kick in $100,000 towards the project.
The school board voted in March to close Trout Creek Elementary, reconfigure Summerland Secondary to accommodate students from Grades 8 to 12 and reconfigure Giant’s Head Elementary due to a lack of provincial operational funding.
