Reject KPR 10 Year Draft Plan sign now

Dear Trustee:

We, the undersigned, respectfully request that you reject the 10 Year Capital Plan Draft as presented to the community. This plan does not address the needs, concerns and problems of the two high schools serving Cobourg and the surrounding area. One cannot separate the elementary capital funding from secondary funding. Economies and savings at the secondary level can be invested in the elementary level, allowing community-based elementary schools a better chance of surviving.

It is logical that such a far-reaching plan would include secondary education in the community. The Cobourg Community Dialogue: Programming for the Future of May 2004, (Item 9.2 of May 27 2004 Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board meeting minutes) explicitly states the concerns, priorities and solutions to the problem of declining enrolment and the inability to provide the best programming possible for our children. In particular, Cobourg Community Dialogue identified the following themes (among others):

- The proposal of one large facility at secondary is strongly supported by the majority of respondents
- The secondary students should not be split between the existing schools
- The CDCI East facility is of good quality and should be considered for retrofit
- There is no need for changes in the elementary schools as the major problem appears to be secondary programming
- The elementary township students should attend schools in the township


The Cobourg Community Dialogue should be the framework upon which any future plans are drafted, as it involved large-scale community involvement in its creation. To ignore this report is to stoop to the level of politicking.

You have the power to reject this plan and to send the administration back to the table. It is our hope that given enough community support you will do the right thing, and that is to demand the administration widen the scope of the plan to include a complete assessment of all its schools, both elementary and secondary, in the entire KPR board before marking schools for closure.

Thank you for taking the time to consider our request.
