Two local school boards have signed a memorandum of understanding with the city today.
The memorandum is based on the growing joint use of school sites as a part of a proposal in the city charter that allows the city to work with school boards in how to utilize space that has been designated as school use.
Mayor Naheed Nenshi is thrilled about this , and says this communication will be key to a successful future for the city and the school boards.
The memorandum allows the school boards and the city to easily work together hand in hand, without having to go through the province anymore when they want things to get done.
He adds this could have connections going forward with city and school development.
Nenshi says potential implications for this could be fire halls on school properties, or senior citizen housing above a ground level school.
