School renaming passed

Despite opposition from a group of parents, the Peel District School Board has stood firm in its decision to rename Hartsdale Avenue Public School after longtime trustee and Board chair Janet McDougald.

The new name was publicly received by trustees, without debate, at a Board meeting held last night.  During a private meeting earlier this fall, trustees decided to rename the south Mississauga school after McDougald, who's been a trustee for 23 years and Board chair for the past 14 consecutive terms. The decision was announced Dec. 1 during the Board's inaugural meeting for the new school year.

Some parents have called on McDougald to decline the honour.  She's responded that she will not do so, adding she's received many calls of support.
During Tuesday's meeting, Helen O'Malley, whose son attends the school, pleaded with the Board to reconsider its decision.
She said the focus should be on the children.

"When the trustees made their decision, were and are the trustees aware of what the students endured over the past three years?" she asked the Board.
O'Malley said the students have experienced "constant change, uncertainty and delays" while the community has gone through the disruption of a school closing process in which three area schools were amalgamated.

She added the one thing the students could count on was the school's name.  Much thought and hard work was put into coming up with a new mascot/team name, the Hartsdale Huskies, O'Malley noted.

"The heart has been ripped from the kids and the Hartsdale Huskies," she said, adding trustees have behaved in self-serving fashion.  
McDougald responded that the Huskies name will remain, as will the school colours.

Meanwhile, Michael Lucid, a concerned resident, told McDougald there's a clear conflict of interest.
"If you want to fathom how these people here voting to name a school for you is not a conflict of interest, I'd love to hear from you," he said, addressing the Board chair.

McDougald said she'll agree to disagree, but noted that, legally, there is no conflict of interest.

Renaming school is not important?.

Dear editor. Peel board says the name of the Hartsdale school is not important.The citizens say it is important. So why not listen to the citizens since its not an important matter for the board. Say one thing and do another. Civics should be taught in school. Someday the government will listen to its' employer and use common sense.

Now on, let us have a new meaning for the term "McDougald". My definition is " McDougald (n): a disgusting act, person or thing; a pathetic individual longing for cheap publicity; a person having low moral and no integrity; scum bag (slang).

"...adding trustees have behaved in self-serving fashion."

Isn't that why Mike Harris smacked these fools down back in the 90's? Is it time for another smack-down? If McDougald cannot see the problem with this she is nothing but a self-aggrandizing narcissist. Time to pack it in lady. You've lost the proper perspective.

"legally, there is no conflict of interest."

Glad to see her offer legalities over decency, humility, and common sense.
