Vancouver School Board has agreed to lease the Henderson Annex school building to the Conseil Scolarie Francophone de la Colombie-Britannique.
VSB formally closed Henderson Annex at a board meeting on April 24, 2017, in accordance with the School Act. The decision followed a closure process that began in April, 2016, when the school had no enrolled students.
The French language school board approached VSB about using Henderson Annex to provide education to elementary students and relieve enrolment pressures at Ã‰cole Rose Des Vents.
VSB official trustee Dianne Turner approved the Henderson Annex lease proposal at a VSB board meeting on May 3, 2017.
"Once again, Vancouver School Board has secured rental income that will support our schools while also helping another public school district," said Turner after the meeting.
