Government of Ontario

Stop School Closures

To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:

Whereas internal documents show the Ontario government has closed nearly 300 schools since 2011 and;

Whereas there are currently 300 more schools currently under review for closure and;

Whereas local schools play important roles in supporting neighborhoods and acting as community hubs, but internal documents show that value isn’t taken into consideration by the Ontario government;

We, the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows: that there be an immediate moratorium on any further school closures until the process for calculating school utilization rates and the Pupil Accommodation Review Guidelines are both amended.

Will you sign?
