The boundary review committee will announce the date of a public meeting at a future time and place to present an interim report and to receive input on the boundary proposal.

The boundary review process will be completed in the spring of 2014.

Questions regarding the boundary review should be directed to the Halifax Regional School Board at 464-2000 ext. 2277.
