School District Reorganization in the Mid-Island Region; Finance and Community Involvement. School Districts 65 (Cowichan), 66 (Lake Cowichan), 67 (Ladysmith), and 68 (Nanaimo).
This study examines the purpose of the school district structure and the manner in which it reflects the expectations of citizens for their school system. The document focusses on the community involvement and financial aspects of reorganization and examines (1) the basic pattern of school district reorganization in North America to find some common factors; and (2) the concepts of local control and accountability, as they relate to the notion of community involvement in school districts. Three main sets of criteria are used as organizing principles: educational, financial, and community involvement. The report concludes with some possible reorganization plans for the region under study. (Author/MLF)
