History of local school districts on new website

The Kootenay Columbia Educational Heritage Society has launched a new website that describes the history of education in our area.

The Kootenay Columbia Educational Heritage Society has launched a new website that describes the history of education in School District No. 20 (Kootenay Columbia), formerly School Districts No. 9 (Castlegar) and 11 (Trail).   The website can be viewed at www.schooldistrict20history.org.

The website also has information on the formation of School District No. 20 itself and how education was delivered in the Province for over a century.

The Kootenay Columbia Educational Heritage Society was established in 2005 to collect and preserve the history of education in School District No. 20.
