School woes

Posted By on Thu, Feb 5, 2009 at 4:05 PM

That school choice thing has implications for private schools, too. Remember when the Cathedral School decided to go it alone, continuing its long independence, rather than join in the new lower school at Episcopal Collegiate School, set to open next year?

Budget problems loom.

It was the inevitable outcome of the sometimes bitter church battle that occurred in the establishment of Collegiate.

See note of a coming Trinity Cathedral parish meeting.

Dear Parishioners,

There will be a parish meeting this coming Sunday morning, 8 February
2009, following the 9:00 a.m. service.  The meeting will be held in
Morrison Hall and will convene at approximately 10:15 a.m.

The purpose of the meeting is to give you information about The
Cathedral School's anticipated budget deficit for the 2009-2010 school
year, based on projected student enrollment.  There will be
presentations and handouts.  However, time will be limited.  Therefore
we will call another parish meeting next week for more discussion and
input, after you have had time to review the information.  If you are
interested in the future of The Cathedral School, please plan to be

Thank you.

The Rev. Canon R. Ewing (Andy) Jackson
Interim Dean and Rector
