Stratford Central Secondary School is getting a renovation – and that means it will have to close its doors for a full school year.
The Avon Maitland District School Board says the school will not be open during the 2019-20 school year. Students will instead be sent to Stratford Northwestern Secondary School, and possibly other schools as well.
According to the school board, the province has agreed to fund the $5.1-million renovation.
Construction work is expected to begin in the summer of 2019.
