Welcome to W.J. Baird Public!

Principal: Mr. B. Vermeersch

We want to hear from you!
Public engagement is important in assisting Lambton Kent District School Board’s Senior Administration in making decisions about the future directions of the LKDSB. As part of the pupil accommodation process, the LKDSB is asking for public input on its proposed future phases through an online engagement process called Thoughtexchang.
 On March 20, the LKDSB is launching a Thoughtexchange to solicit input on the proposed plan for the 
Blenheim, Ridgetown, Tilbury, and South Chatham Area phase. Please note that this is not the start of a pupil accommodation review for the area. An Initial Staff Report has not been presented to Trustees. More information about the Thoughtexchange process is available at:
