Francojeunesse Families Protest School Rezoning

The Conseil des écoles publiques de l'Est de l'Ontario (CEPEO) has recently proposed to alter several school catchment zones that would directly affect many residents of Old Ottawa South, in particular, residents whose children currently attend the CEPEO's Francojeunesse school in Sandy Hill.

Currently, the catchment zone for Francojeunesse includes all of Old Ottawa South and Old Ottawa East, among other neighbourhoods. Under the new rezoning proposal put forward by the CEPEO at the end of October 2016, a new school would be opened in 2017 at 175 Beech (near Preston Street in Little Italy) and the roughly 30 Francojeunesse students who live in Old Ottawa South and west of Bank Street would be asked —or possibly required— to transfer from Francojeunesse to the new school.
