School Naming Survey

- new high school in Amherstburg -

In accordance with the GECDSB School Naming Policy and Regulation, a survey has been created to gather ideas from the community for the name of the new high school under construction in Amherstburg.

This school will combine the current General Amherst HS and Western SS communities at one site in Amherstburg.

Respondents are being asked for input on what concepts should be considered in the selection of a name for the school (e.g. geography, history…). They may also provide a specific suggestion. A committee is being formed to provide a short list of possible names to the GECDSB Board of Trustees, who will make the final decision at a regular monthly public meeting.

The survey is available on the GECDSB website - click here for the direct link.
