MORAY Council will tackle sustainability challenges in the first phase of their engagement on the current school estate.
The engagement is the next stage in the government’s development of a school estate that supports equality and opportunities in the current economy.
It looks to examine the occupancy, condition and utilisation of the schools over the eight wards across Moray.
Moray Council oversees 48 primary schools and 8 secondary schools, nine of which will be covered during this phase, which will cover the Forres associated school group (ASG).
Chair of the Education, Children’s Services and Leisure Committee, Cllr Kathleen Robertson (Conservative, Forres), said: “All young people deserve to be educated in buildings which offer them the best educational opportunities.
"Input from our local community is vital in helping to shape our future schools.
“I would encourage everyone to get involved with the online engagement. All feedback and opinions are valued.”
Throughout this engagement, Moray Council is looking for feedback from the public.
An online survey is available where locals can have their say on what they want out of their schools in the future which will play a vital role in the engagement’s outcome.
An event open to the community to put their opinions across in person to the learning estate team will also take place at Forres Library on October 24.
Similar events will take place in other Moray areas in the next 18 months.
The public survey is now open and will close on November 30.
