HWDSB Underestimates Kindergarten Enrollment – Dawn Danko

Dear Friends in Ward 7:

The HWDSB Interim Budget Financial Report confirms that 161.5 more JK-3 students enrolled in 2013/14 than projected – and here is the reason: “primarily due to growth in full day kindergarten.”

Read my further analysis of the report below.

Sincerely,

Dawn Danko

Public School Trustee Candidate

HWDSB Enrollment Data Proves Incorrect

24 schools switched to full day kindergarten in 2013 – so that is an average of 7 additional JK students per school higher than the Board’s enrollment projections!

In small community schools, this bump in kindergarten students carried through the years would effect total enrollments by 15%.

Exactly what neighbourhoods across the Central Mountain have been telling HWDSB staff – enrollments at Queensdale, Linden and Eastmount Park are artificially low because they are the only three schools in the Central Mountain ARC that do not currently have full day kindergarten.

The Secondary School enrollment projections were also wrong by 207 students – raising more questions about the closure of Hill Park Secondary School.

We need Trustees that know how to manage our tax money. Dawn is a small business owner - she understands where to cut wasteful spending.

I was at the meeting at Sherwood High School on October 7 to check out the candidates for trustee for ward 7. I was impressed with Dawn Danko.  I had read what she had written in the Mountain News and saw the election signs in our neighbourhood, but otherwise knew nothing about her.  She was challenged twice during the meeting, but she didn’t back down from the issues.  She was able to explain her position in a concise, professional and confident manner.  I see her as someone who wouldn’t back down from difficult issues and would fight for what she is passionate about for the families and schools in ward 7.  She has my vote for trustee.

Dawn Danko will make an amazing Public School trustee.  I don't know of anyone else that knows as much mixing formal education with real world experience.

Please join me and vote Dawn Danko for Ward 7 Public School Trustee.
