Members have been asking about the program being run by the Catholic School Board at the St. Martin’s School site on Salisbury Ave. Many have expressed concern over the increased numbers of students and their behaviour in the neigbourhood.
A.P.P.L.E. stands for: Alternative Pupil Placement for Limited Expelled Students and is a Toronto Catholic District School Board program run through Monsignor Fraser College for students who are on a limited expulsion. This program provides a flexible and individualized alternative setting for youth 16 years of age and older who are at risk and are experiencing halted success with the regular secondary school system.
The president, Joseph Curatola, has told us that they are closely monitoring the situation. Anyone in the neighbourhood with questions or concerns is free to contact either him or his collegue, Dave Morin. You may contact them directly at:
