The ARC committee is now looking at a number of two-school options, as opposed to the proposed one large school option. Five new two school alternatives have been put forward by committee members and other stakeholders, some suggestions include refurbishing West Ferris and building a new facility to house Chippewa and Widdifield.

The proposals put forward include different scenarios of where the site of the new school would be, either Chippewa or Widdifield, and also breaks down the programming and grade levels that would be offered. One example is a couple of the options include a suggestion that both schools incorporate students from grade 7 to grade 12, and that one be an arts-based school while the other focuses more on science and technology.
