If you’re a member of this community you may have already heard what has been happening at Broadview Public School. You can stay informed on this important issue by following the Build a Better Broadview group on Facebook, and on Twitter. Their website is here too.

The WCA supports the actions of Build a Better Broadview as we believe that schools should be a healthy environment for learning, and we look forward to seeing some positive changes from the provincial government and the OCDSB as we move forward on this issue.

Churchill Alternative School review

11 11 2009

We’ve received some information from one of the public schools in our region and thought it might be of interest to Westboro residents.

The Ottawa Carleton District School Board is in the process of reviewing the Alternative Program, the purpose of which is described as “coming to a decision regarding the Alternative Program” by February 2010.

Churchill parents and other supporters of the Alternative education model have a number of concerns with respect the larger purpose of the review as well as how the review is being conducted. To learn more about the issues please review the attached PDF.  Please forward to interested friends and neighbors.
