The Richmond Board of Education is currently undertaking a seismic upgrade and partial replacement at Mitchell Elementary. The Board is considering retaining the south wing of the school, which was scheduled for demolition as part of the seismic project, in order to relocate the Rideau Park Adult Learning Centre to a proposed Mitchell Adult Learning Centre.

Richmond Continuing Education (RCE) programs and staff are currently spread out over seven locations. The Rideau Park Adult Learning Centre is the central facility for RCE and has been determined to be too small to service all of the growing needs of the program. It is restricted to weekday use from 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. due to its location within a residential neighbourhood. It is also not located on a major bus route.

The Mitchell Adult Learning Centre would be physically separated and fenced off from Mitchell Elementary. Adult learners would not have physical access to Mitchell Elementary or the school grounds. The Adult Learning Centre would be accessible from Cambie Road and would be in close proximity to a major bus route. As such, the new location would be suitable to accommodate learning for all adults, including those who may require daytime, evening or weekend instruction.

The board will also be hosting a virtual public information meeting on May 11, 2021, at 5:30 p.m. Attendees will be given the opportunity to provide input and ask questions.

列治文学务委员会目前正在对Mitchell小学的建筑进行防震升级及部分设施置换。学务委员会正在考虑保留曾在该校防震项目中计划拆除的南翼,以便将Rideau Park成人教育中心迁至拟议的Mitchell成人教育中心。

列治文继续教育(RCE)项目和员工目前分布在七个地点。 Rideau Park成人教育中心是RCE的中心设施,但经确认,该中心太小而无法服务于日益增长的所有项目需求。由于位于居民区内,其使用时间只能限于工作日的上午9:00至下午6:30。该中心亦不在公交车主干线上。

Mitchell成人教育中心将与Mitchell小学实际分离和隔开。成人学习者将无法进入Mitchell小学或校园。从Cambie Road 可到达成人教育中心,且邻近一条公交主干线。 因此,这个新地点将适应和满足所有成年人的学习需求,包括可能需要在白天,晚上或周末上课的人士。

学务委员会还将于2021511日下午5:30在网上召开一次公开说明会,与会者将有机会提供意见和提出问题。请提前在https://bit.ly/3vudSG2网页上注册。注册后,您将收到一封确认邮件,邮件中包含了参加会议的信息。
