You Need to Act! Concern about Proposed New School in Canton
As a member of the HHA school community, there is reason for you to be concerned about the recent City Schools, recommendation to open a new 1,000 student prek-8 grade school in Canton. Our school community might be negatively impacted by a change to our attendance area and/or a change in our student enrollment. We don’t want to lose any of our families! Any reduction in enrollment could negatively impact our budget making it harder to provide a quality school for our students, and far less likely that we could expand our building as planned. The recommendation was made to the City School Board of Commissioners by the Office of New Initiatives (ONI) at North Avenue Tuesday, November 12th. Two public comment meetings have already taken place. Our message to the City Schools Board of Commissioners is clear: Do NOT vote for the recommendation for a new school in Canton without a detailed proposal and without more information. The Board can vote separately on whether or not to renew and/or relocate the Friendship Academy for Science and Technology (FAST).
