2017 New School Attendance Areas Announced

Tue, 29 Nov, 2016

News item: 2017 New School Attendance Areas Announced

The attendance areas for 11 new schools set to open in 2017 have been announced. Our District held public information sessions last June to share potential options with families and the community, and we encouraged you to share your input through our online survey. We listened and incorporated public feedback, where possible, and we made decisions with your children’s best interests in mind.

When deciding the attendance areas, we tried to make sure the attendance areas:

  • allow as many students as possible attend a school close to their home
  • have manageable attendance areas so that as communities grow, schools can accommodate students without being full
  • allow students from outside the primary attendance areas to attend the new school, if there is available space, using our random selection process.

View the attendance area decisions for our 11 new schools:

  • Ivor Dent (replacement school in Lawton area) K-9
  • Michael Phair (Webber Greens) 7-9
