Category: Enrolment and Registration Protocol

Recommended motion (recommended by the Committee): TTB accept the recommendations of the Student Registration and Transfer Ad Hoc Committee.
Proposed new enrolment protocol for a school: 1. re-enrolling student 2. catchment sibling 3. new catchment child 4. non catchment sibling 5. non catchment child 6. non school district child . / One parent speaker: Changing schools can lead to psychosis.

There are four BAA courses coming forward in motions tonight. The School Act says we can develop these courses, but just because we can, should we perpetuate competition among schools? One of the courses is privately funded by a benefactor. This is not how I see public education being funded. There are no big infrastructure costs associated with any one of these courses coming forward, unlike for example, an automotive shop, which would be costly to replicate at every high school. If these courses are good enough for one school, they’re good enough for all schools. For these reasons, I will not support this motion or the three that follow.
