Theodore Litigation Update – March 25, 2020

March 25, 2020

Dear parents and caregivers:

On March 25, 2020, the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal ruled in favour of the appeal of the Theodore case in a unanimous decision.

This decision overturns the 2017 ruling that sought to limit public funding for students who choose to attend Catholic schools in Saskatchewan but lack a Catholic baptismal certificate.

Background information on the Theodore case can be found at www.opencatholiceducation.ca.

I am sure you are as relieved and grateful for this decision as I am. Even though the Government of Saskatchewan has assured us they would do whatever is necessary to protect your choice for your child’s education, this ruling confirms what we have said and believed all along: as parents, you know what is best for your children and you should be able to choose Catholic, faith-based education if that is what you want—no matter your reason, faith background or tradition.

I speak for our entire Board of Education when I say thank you for entrusting us with your child’s education. Despite some uncertainty for some of you, you made a choice. We are both humbled and encouraged that so many of you continue to want Catholic education for your family.

I also thank all of the donors who generously gave to fund the appeal. Because of you, all eight Catholic boards in the province were able to keep education funds in the classroom and not divert them to cover costly courtroom expenses.

A significant amount of time and money has been spent on this court case, and we are hopeful that we can all refocus our energy and resources on our students and families to build upon the exemplary model of education we have in this province. However, Good Spirit (Public) School Division does have an option to ask the Supreme Court of Canada to consider the case.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask me or one of my fellow trustees.

Blessings to you all!

Sincerely,Dwight Guy, Board of Education ChairChrist the Teacher Catholic School Division
