Stop Adult ESL Classes in Ontario Elementary Schools During School Hours

This petition made change with 335 supporters!


The York Catholic District School Board has proceeded to permit adult ESL programs to coexist within an Elementary School located in Richmond Hill, Ontario.  As of July, 2017, Corpus Christi Catholic Elementary School will commence a pilot project wherein it will house adult day ESL programs.  This project was implemented without the consent of any parents whose children attend this elementary school.  The parents of the children attending this school were only given notice after the decision to permit this change was granted and only 2 weeks prior to the end of the school year.  These adult day classes will run 5 days a week on a full-time basis during regular school hours.  Most parents at this school are opposed to such a change in school dynamics for safety reasons.  Schools are locked and monitored for the safety of our children and this board is now proposing to bring in up to 30 unscreened and unvetted adults into the school on a regular and revolving basis for ESL classes.  Most parents are proposing that these adults be moved to another location to facilitate their learning experiences and not co-mingle with children as young as 4 years of age within the same building.  No school boards in Ontario should allow children to coexist with unvetted and unscreened adults during their school curriculum.  Schools are a safe zone for our children and should remain that way.  Please sign this petition as we (the parents) will be forwarding this to the Minister of Education, the Media and other authorities in an effort to stop this and all future adult classes from taking place inside Ontario Elementary Schools.
