The Thames Valley District School Board has voted to close 5 schools, all of them rural. Trustees have decided to shut the doors on schools in New Sarum, Springfield, Sparta, South Dorchester and Westminster. Sparta will close in June of next year and reopen the following year as a French immersion school. Trustees cited the provincial funding formula as the reason to close the facilities. Trustees opposed to the closings spoke of the importance of the buildings as focal points in small rural communities, but the majority chose to focus on the numbers.
