Save Rideau High School!

Whereas Rideau High School is a vital part of our community that runs amazing programs that enrich the lives of students and the neighbourhood, including childcare, refugee supports, and First Nations, Metis and Inuit programming;

Whereas enrollment at the school is actually expected to grow over the next several years as new housing is built in the area;

Whereas the Board has not pursued the potential for additional, program specific funding sources from senior levels of government, and has not considered viable proposals to lease space to community partner services;

Whereas School Board staff did not include any feeder schools that could be negatively affected by a decision to close Rideau;

We the undersigned call on the Ottawa Carleton District School Board to fully explore all possible options before holding a final vote on the closure of Rideau High School.
