Many thanks to Milton School Board Trustee Donna Danielli for sending me this information today.
As I go out knocking on doors speaking with Milton residents, one of the top concerns I hear is schools. When will we be getting more? When is the next one being built? When it is built will my children be transferred.
We found out in October of last year (see my post) there will be a new school constructed near Fourth Line and Derry Road for occupation (HOPEFULLY) for September 2013. With that announcement a lot of people were curious as to what will happen with their children. There is no doubt about the need for more schools in Milton as many councillors including myself attended an AMO Conference this year to meet with education officials at the provincial government about it.
One of the main concerns of those in our ward who were once attending Hawthorne Village PS and transferred to Tiger Jeet Singh PS is … will they have to move again? Many parents would NOT like to move again for a number of reasons, and as a parent I have to agree.
So Donna has let us know there will be a school boundary review coming up on January 17th, which as a parent I will be attending.
Here are the details. Many thanks Donna!
The Halton District School Board invites parents and members of the community to attend a public consultation meeting regarding school boundaries in southeast Milton.
The meeting will take place on Thursday, January 17, 2013 at Bruce Trail Public School (1199 Costigan Road, Milton), beginning at 7 p.m.
As a result of the opening of the new Milton #7 public school (625 Sauve Street) in September 2013, the Board is conducting a boundary review that will impact Bruce Trail PS, E.W. Foster PS, Hawthorne Village PS, Sam Sherratt PS, Tiger Jeet Singh PS and W.I. Dick PS. The purpose of this meeting is to provide information about the boundary review process, review boundary scenarios and give members of the public an opportunity to provide feedback.
The scenarios being presented at the meeting will be shared on the Board website at www.hdsb.ca, under the heading “Program and Accommodation”.
