Parents who want a public high school built for Stittsville have launched a new web site and Twitter account, and are planning to ramp up their lobbying efforts in the coming months. The web site is stittsvillepublichighschoolnow.com, the Twitter account is @sphs_now.
The group already had a Facebook page, with over 400 likes. Later this spring, the group will launch a survey to generate data that they can bring to the public school board and Ministry of Education, says Jenny Guth.
“We have heard a lot of anecdotal comments re: switching boards, , but no real data that we can track and show as credible,” she wrote in an email to StittsvilleCentral.ca.She says parent volunteers are planning to attend upcoming board meetings, including on May 5 when trustees are expected to discuss school accommodation and boundary changes.
A public high school for Stittsville is currently number two on the school board’s capital project priority list. (Related: More public pressure is needed to get a high school, says Scott)
