Public school board trustees have voted in favour of replacing three Regina schools, including the historic Connaught school.
Dozens of concerned citizens attended Tuesday night’s meeting to stop Connaught from being torn down.
But in the end, the board voted 5-2 in favour of replacing Connaught, which was built in 1912.
Motions to rebuild Glen Elm and Imperial/McDermid schools were unanimously passed.
Some in attendance criticized the move to replace Connaught, saying there should be a second opinion on construction and more communication with the community before moving forward.
Despite the decision, those trying to save Connaught aren't giving up hope. A meeting is scheduled this weekend to discuss what steps need to be taken to save the school.
