Joanna St. Jacques started this petition to Hamilton Wentworth District School Board of Trustees and Hamilton City Council (Director) and

Parkview Secondary School currently houses 230 students each with special needs. Parkview students and families believe through the information of independant experts as well as through their own personal experiences that the inclusive model of schooling will not achieve the same standard of education that the children currently receive.  Parkview students deserve trained teachers who know the programming and know how to meet their individual education needs. Any move will jeopardize this as teachers may change and will not have appropriate program training.  Parkview students should not be put at risk of losing teachers who can provide this special programing and education.  Parkview students and families would like to stay at the current location until such time as a new suitable location is found or indefinately given the risks posed to their well being, safety, and education sucess.  Parkview students need support from the community to help grow their voices and to make this happen. Please add your name to this petition. Thank you for supporting Parkview students and families and for adding your voice.
