3 School District No. 73 (Kamloops/Thompson) Beattie School of the Arts – Pineridge Campus District challenges: Funding is tied to per FTE student enrolment and with declining enrolment, core funding is on the decline. Reduced core funding creates budget shortfalls annually. Increasingly difficult to offer a full range of curricular and extra-curricular program options. Increasingly difficult to effectively staff smaller secondary schools/programs. District is operating too much space for the current and projected enrolment and the district is not funded for space.

12 School District No. 73 (Kamloops/Thompson) Beattie School of the Arts – Pineridge Campus Board Decision – December 14, 2009 The Board of Education approved a motion at the December 14 th Public Board meeting that the Beattie School of the Arts, Grades 8-12, be relocated to the John Peterson campus of South Kamloops Secondary School for the school term, and that the Board inform the Beattie School community of its intention to consider closing Beattie School of the Arts (Pineridge campus) by the end of the school year.

13 School District No. 73 (Kamloops/Thompson) Beattie School of the Arts – Pineridge Campus Benefits of Moving Beattie School of the Arts (Pineridge) to the John Peterson Building: Potential to stop the loss of students at senior grade levels. Enhanced program for Senior students, i.e. greater course selection. Enhanced facility, i.e. labs, dance studio, drama, etc. Potential when space permits to establish a K-12 Fine Arts School at John Peterson. Greater timetable flexibility and choices for Senior students. Greater efficiencies in staffing.

14 School District No. 73 (Kamloops/Thompson) Beattie School of the Arts – Pineridge Campus Benefits of Moving Beattie School of the Arts (Pineridge) to the John Peterson Building: (Continued) Closer proximity to Sagebrush Theatre (as opposed to performing in an elementary gym). Better lunch options for students as we would share the food offered by SKSS cafeteria. JP campus is a more accessible location in the city (i.e. better bus route). Students have the opportunity to increase their peer group. May have the ability to access more opportunities outside of timetable. Performances booked at the Sagebrush could more easily accommodate McGill students as guests.

17 School District No. 73 (Kamloops/Thompson) Beattie School of the Arts – Pineridge Campus Disadvantages … Sharing of space may create conflicts amongst students and staff. Loss of “identity” with Beattie School of the Arts. Larger school population may be problematic for some students. No longer have the ability to pull students together as easily for impromptu sharing sessions (Recognition Assemblies). Will have difficulty securing time in the gym for school- wide assemblies. For students who live close to Pineridge, they will have to travel farther to school.
