We, the undersigned, are residents of the Allenby Junior Public School ("AJPS") community. The Toronto District School Board ("TDSB") has started a formal consultation process to find solutions to accommodate Full-Day Kindergarten ("FDK") and the future growth of student population. The TDSB's proposed solutions include the re-alignment of catchment boundaries (i.e. school boundaries), bussing students and changing school pathways (i.e. eligible middle school and high school for the current AJPS community).
We oppose any further discussions or actions by the TDSB that could potentially divide our neighbourhood. As a united community, we also strongly oppose any re-alignment of boundaries resulting in any of our residents being displaced from the AJPS catchment:
We are a unique neighbourhood of tight-knit families and friends.
Our children have grown up together, play together in the local parks and have formed deep friendships.
Our families look out for each other and are strong supporters of the local schools resulting in many volunteers and strong fundraising efforts.
All of our residents, including those without school-age children, chose this neighbourhood and immensely value it for these very qualities.
We respectfully request that the AJPS community be left intact on the grounds that an expansion of the school building and/or the re-configuration of space currently used are effective solutions to the issues raised by the TDSB. We also request that the re-alignment of catchment boundaries and the alternation of school pathways are no longer tabled as potential options.
