INGLESIDE, Ontario – A packed community meeting at Rothwell-Osnabruck school on the night of Oct. 17 heard how the Upper Canada School Board (UCDSB) plans to send South Stormont students to what will be an overcrowded CCVS.
The meeting was organized by the Save Rothwell-Osnabruck School group to address the School Board’s Pupil Accommodation Review.
The Review would see 12 schools closed by July 2017 including Longue Sault Public School. Rothwell-Osnabruck school would be turned into a K-Grade 6 school and all of the high school students in South Stormont would be sent to CCVS.
Jennifer MacIsaac, one of the organizers of the meeting, said that the School Board had undermined and neglected South Stormont schools.
“The School Board set us up by taking away educational programming,” MacIsaac said.
