Petition to halt the Closure of Holy Cross Jr High
Holy Cross JHS is an important neighbourhood school with programs, community partnerships and extra-curricular activities designed to meet the particular needs of the inner city students who attend it. The appointed, unelected English School Board trustees have proposed to close down Holy Cross Junior High School. This board has arbitrarily and without consultation reduced the Holy Cross JHS catchment area. Students will have to be bussed to a far more distant school.
The NDP Caucus invites you to download and sign this petition which asks that Holy Cross Junior High School remain open and that government immediately arrange for a democratically-elected English School Board.
