Saskatoon Catholic school board votes to accept Warman amalgamation

SASKATOON - Trustees with the Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools board have voted unanimously to accept the Warman board's request to amalgamate.

Warman began the process of getting a Catholic school board in 2013, spearheaded by current board chair Josie Hodgkinson.

The Warman board's trustees voted in favour of amalgamation in May.

Hodgkinson says the reasons were the large workload that would come with running their own board and they wanted experienced administrators on hand, rather than having trustees forced to learn on the job.

Saskatoon board chairwoman Diane Boyko says the next step will be to inform the province's Ministry of Education of the vote so that they can get the division boundaries re-drawn.

Then the priority will be getting information out to Warman's ratepayers concerning things like busing schedules.

Boyko said the parents who got the Warman board rolling deserve full marks for their efforts.

"They didn't have Catholic education and they basically built it from the ground up," she said.

Warman will be represented on the Saskatoon board by trustee Wayne Stus, who represents rural areas in the division including Martensville and Humboldt.
