REASONS FOR THE PROPOSED CHANGE

  • Edgemont is rapidly growing, and we need to ease enrolment pressures at designated schools.
  • The area is very large and accommodating the entire Edgemont neighbourhood at one elementary and junior high school is not possible.
  • The number of school-age children living in the area is also going to continue to grow as the area continues to be developed. We need to spread out the designations for the area to several District schools in order to accommodate the amount of students living in the area, now and in the future.

CHOOSING TO REMAIN AT YOUR CURRENT SCHOOL

Once a student enrols at a school, they can continue to attend that school. This means students attending Michael A. Kostek, S. Bruce Smith and Jasper Place schools can choose to stay. Siblings of these students would also be able to attend, if families choose to stay at their current school.

YELLOW BUS SERVICE

If the redesignation is approved, only eligible students who attend their designated school receive yellow bus service.

TIMELINES 

If the proposed redesignation is approved, the change would be in effect for the 2018-19 school year.

We'll make a final decision on the proposed redesignation in January, before pre-enrolment begins. We’ll share information with families once a decision is made.
