Two Dundee schools – including fire-hit Braeview Academy – could be demolished under council plans.
Dundee City Council is considering shutting Braeview, which was hit by a serious blaze in September last year – and Craigie High School.
Both buildings could close and be replaced by a new combined secondary at the former St Saviour’s High site, subject to Scottish Government funding.
The option of reinstating Braeview Academy on its current site is still on the table, while there would also be continued planned maintenance on Craigie High.
Any future refurbishment of both schools on their present locations would depend on the council’s future capital programme and Scottish Government funding.
The suggestion is included in a reported titled ‘Collaborative Approach to Learning Estate Transformation across Tayside’, which also details proposals for a shared school campus for Dundee, Angus and Perth & Kinross councils in relation to the Western Gateway scheme at Dykes of Grey.
Children and families service convener Councillor Stewart Hunter said: “We are well aware that both Braeview Academy and Craigie High School do not meet these standards and this report shows how we could tackle those issues. There are also implications following the fire at Braeview that we need to consider.
“At this stage there is not a preferred option for these two secondary schools and that is why our conversation with the school communities would be so vital.”
The report will be considered by Dundee City Council on Monday January 28.
