Petition to help the government be able to put more funds towards public education!

Get the petition and start collecting signatures (Very EASY for this topic!). The wording requirements are very particular which is why this petition is worded the way that it is. This wording has been approved. The power is in the number of signatures collected!

Any resident of Alberta over the age of 18 can sign. Be sure that they include their postal code with their address. (They do have to actually sign a hard copy in order to have it count in the Legislative Assembly of Alberta.)

School parents are able to lobby. Employees of the school board cannot be part of your lobbying, but parents can certainly circulate the petition among themselves and the community.

Petitions can be collected at the AGM on Feb 18, or email president@capsc.ca and we'll come pick it up even if you have only 5 signatures. We need them by the end of February. Every little bit helps our kids and our schools!

You should also know that the Provincial Government has a survey to find out how you want to fill the funding gap in Alberta. Tell them! https://extranet.gov.ab.ca/opinio6/s?s=24556
