We chose an attendance area that would allow as many students as possible to attend a school close to home, and we did our best to keep families and communities together. We were careful to make sure the school doesn’t fill up too quickly while communities are still growing. This is a lesson we learned from opening other schools in new areas. Including the entire Windermere neighbourhood could overwhelm the school as soon as the fourth year of operation.
Every student who pre-enrols will get to attend their designated school. Students from secondary attendance areas are given first priority to fill available spaces once all students from the primary attendance area have been accepted. If the number of students who want to attend from the secondary attendance area exceeds the available space, they will be chosen by random selection.
Constable Daniel Woodall School has an open attendance boundary, which means that, if there’s still room once students from the primary and secondary attendance areas are accepted,students from outside the attendance areas will be chosen by random selection.
The school will carefully manage enrolment to make sure there’s room for new students who move into the school’s primary attendance area, and we hope this will minimize the need to change attendance areas in the future.
For questions about the attendance area decision, contact the Planning department at 780-429-8539.

The new school in Windermere will be named after Constable Daniel Woodall, a member of the Edmonton Police Service who worked in the Hate Crime Unit when he was killed in the line of duty in 2015.
