Help bring an enriched public high school to Côte Saint-Luc

Bringing a Public High School Back to Côte Saint-Luc: Brief presented to the English Montreal School Board on the Relocation of Royal Vale School's Secondary Sector to the Giovanni Palatucci Facility
Supplemental brief
Supplemental brief

The English Montreal School Board is voting on a proposal on January 11, 2012 to relocate Royal Vale High School to the former Wagar building on Parkhaven Avenue. Côte Saint-Luc strongly supports this proposal. With its large and predominately English-speaking population, Côte Saint-Luc is a natural location for such a school with its enriched math and science classes and French immersion program. 

As you may have read in the newspaper, some Royal Vale parents oppose the plan. Fortunately, another group of parents and their supporters have emerged and provided a compelling case for how their children will be better served by a new location. It is very important to show our support for these parents. You can do so by taking two actions set out in the paragraph below. 

In order to help ensure that the EMSB brings a public high school to Côte Saint-Luc, please:

  1. Sign the online petition at www.ipetitions.com/petition/royalvale (if this petition website is offline, please use http://petitionbureau.org/cslhighschool as a backup.)
  2. Send an e-mail to the EMSB commissioners explaining that you agree with their proposal. 
  3. Support the City of Côte Saint-Luc by attending the EMSB consultation meeting on Tuesday, December 6 at 6000 Fielding Avenue (corner Côte Saint-Luc Road). Please be there no later than 7:15 pm as Côte Saint-Luc will be presenting a brief in favour of the proposal at 7:30 pm.

The City of Côte Saint-Luc is deeply committed to bringing an English-language mainstream public high school to our city. It is a major priority for us. We will work in close partnership with the EMSB to make it an attractive option for parents in the west end. But it is only through your showing your support by signing the petition and emailing the commissioners that we will succeed.
