Petition Closed
Petitioning Education Minister Mike Bernier and 12 others



On June 20, 2016, the Vancouver School Board listed our local community school on their preliminary list of 12 schools they may close. This proposed closure is in an effort to comply with the Provincial Government’s unrealistic and educationally unfounded mandate of pushing all schools to 95% capacity. A. R. Lord is a diverse school with a culture of acceptance that allows our children to thrive. A. R. Lord unites this East Vancouver community. Send a message to the Vancouver Board of Education to keep A. R. Lord open. Please sign this petition to help save our wonderful neighbourhood school.

We, the undersigned, are petitioning the Vancouver Board of Education to keep Dr. A. R. Lord Elementary open and to find alternatives to school closure. .

  • Education Minister
    Mike Bernier
