Mayor Bancroft calls school closures an attack on rural communities

The proposed school closures that have been proposed by the Upper Canada District School Board has been met by strong reaction from the affected communities.

The Board has said that Accommodation Review Committees (ARCs) will be formed to hear the concerns of parents and students from different schools, but how these committees will work has not yet been made clear.

“We are highly concerned as to how many schools are to be represented at one meeting and believe that due to the amount, they will be less productive,” reads a post on the Save Rothwell-Osnabruck Secondary School Facebook Page. “We have requested clarification to several Trustees who are still awaiting clarification from the Board.”
