Riverside Catholic Elementary Schools - Status Quo

269 Signatures Goal: 1,000

We are petitioning WECDSB Administration & Trustees, Ontario Ombudsman Andre Marin, Minister of Education Liz Sandals, MPP Teresa Piruzza and MPP Percy Hatfield

Immediately stop the discussion, development and decisions regarding the Riverside Accommodation Review process, (which intends to immediately close St. Maria Goretti, transfer 7&8 students from Goretti, St. Rose, St. Jules and St. John Vianney to Brennan high school to create a 7-12 model, and to split the JK-6 Goretti students between St. Rose and St. John Vianney with the pending closure of St. Jules and eventual closure of St. Rose) to maintain the Status Quo and reconsider all factors including all facilities, programs,enrollment and boundaries, in a process that should involve parents, the Board, teachers, business partners, City administration and the greater community affected by the recommended changes.

Over 1500 children will be sacrificed by being shuffled among a variety of schools in order to prop up an old, under-utilized Brennan high school. In addition, there is a high possibility that these children will be moved more than once to solve the Board's problems with declining enrollment. Taking the action proposed in this petition will find a better solution for the problem of Brennan high school's dropping enrollment without disrupting the lives of many hundreds of elementary children and their families - the current recommendation by the Director of Education is NOT in the best interest of any of these children.
