Save our bell times

This petition had 156 supporters

At the regularly scheduled Board meetings on January 23, 2017, the Durham District School Board (DDSB) and the Durham Catholic District School Board (DCDSB) approved a joint region wide community consultation to adjust school bell times to ensure maximum transportation efficiency, and to reduce transportation costs, while maximizing the transportation service to students.

As a result of these consultations, it has been proposed that Eagle Ridge Public School experience a bell time change by moving the student start time 30 minutes later and ending the school day 30 minutes later (9:00am to 3:40pm from the current 8:30am to 3:10pm).

In addition, it has been proposed that Pickering High School also experience a change in bell times with a start and end time 15 minutes earlier.

As a resident of the North Ajax (Ward 1), Church Street community who will be impacted by the proposed bell time adjustments, I strongly disagree with the proposal to adjust the start and end time of Eagle Ridge Public School and/or Pickering High School.
