The Wild Rose School Division will be doing walkthroughs with Alberta Education after they have run into trouble with the modernization of David Thompson High School.
In a release it states that a value management session will take place with Alberta Infrastructure, WRSD Trustees, Administration, Clearwater County, as well as staff and parents from each of the three corridor schools to determine the best way forward to reduce the number of schools in the corridor from three to two.

Back in December Trustees hosted a public meeting at David Thompson High School to update the corridor community about the schools modernization project, where a sewage lagoon issue is preventing the project from moving forward.
An alternative plan was presented with the possible closure of DTHS and instead see all of the K-12 students in the corridor area being taught in the Condor and Leslieville schools. One of these schools would become a grade K-6 school while the other a grade 7-12 school.
The walkthroughs of the two schools will take place Feb. 1 and will be followed a few weeks later.
