SCHOOL BOARD BOUNDARY REVIEW...Know about it, Comment about it

SCHOOL BOARD BOUNDARY REVIEW

Did you get to this meeting? Did you even know about this meeting? Not many can answer yes to either question. With all that is going on regarding our children's education, we really need to keep up on this and speak out.
This is a quote from a very involved and concerned friend of mine who was there...

So current and future parents. Concerned community members, we need to act now. Please write Derek Mombourquette, the Premiere, and the Minister of education. We must be heard."

  1. There is no consideration for where the school board will put the pre-k program. When they close Brookland both Cusak and Shipyard will be at capacity. (Shipyard will have a whole three empty spaces before they are over capacity. I hope no one has triplets)
  2. Our kids deserve a French immersion program in their community. As it is kids who live in South Bar will have to travel to Malcolm
  3. A school of 735 students is too many. As it is the school is so crowded it takes 15 min to switch classrooms because you are only allowed to travel one direction in the halls

I could go on, and I will. Please know your facts. Read the report on the board web site.


So here is what you need to pay attention to...
