GETTING TO SCHOOL

Yellow bus service is the preferred transportation method for eligible elementary students attending their designated school who live outside of the walk boundary.

Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) is the preferred transportation method for junior high students.

HOW WE MADE THE DECISION

The Division tried to make decisions that: 

  • allow as many students as possible to attend a school close to home
  • honoured the community’s feedback from our engagement process
  • can allow students outside of the attendance area to enrol if there’s space in planned classes
