Keep community schools in Ward 4
As a Ward 4 resident, I strongly support my community school, and disapprove of relocating our children outside of the community to attend school. Community schools promote inclusivity, strong neighbourhoods and a sense of belonging in our children. Accordingly, I oppose the following Notice of Motion proposed by our Ward 4 Trustee, Kathryn Bateman Olmstead, which, if passed, would see students from community schools in our Ward relocated to schools outside of their community. Wording of extract of Trustee Bateman-Olmstead's Notice of Motion: "Be it resolved that the Halton District School Board realign the English-track boundaries for English-track schools north of Upper Middle Road, dealing with Emily Carr and West Oak Public School directing students to lower enrolled schools south of Upper Middle."
