Note: We have no intention of this blog becoming political at all. However, we are building a community and in that spirit we are disseminating information that impact our community. We hope that everyone understands.
If you plan for your children to attend Magee High School in Grade 8, and your child is a cross boundary student (or is friends with cross boundary students), please note that the VSB is moving to enforce a current policy that out-of-catchment students be selected by lottery if there is insufficient space to accommodate all cross boundary applicants.
A petition for parents to sign has been prepared to voice our concerns on this policy, requesting the board to reconsider this position with respect to Montessori Maple Grove students, as it is a city wide program and the school builds strong relationships between students here and at Magee.
If you would like to add your name to this petition, please go to the library on Friday morning at drop off. We need as many signatures as possible. Thank you!
