ATTENDANCE AREA BOUNDARY 

APPROVED ATTENDANCE AREA 

The Superintendent has approved the following attendance area for Constable Daniel Woodall School:

  • The following neighbourhoods are designated to Constable Daniel Woodall School: Windermere Estates North and Windermere Estates Southeast (see attendance area map for clarification).
    • Students in the Constable Daniel Woodall School primary attendance area who are currently attending McKee School can stay there, if they wish, but they will no longer be eligible for yellow bus service.
  • The Windermere Estates Southwest neighbourhood remains designated to McKee School.
    • Yellow bus service will continue to be available to students who live in Windermere Estates Southwest and attend McKee School.
  • Constable Daniel Woodall School will have a secondary attendance area for the Windermere Estates Southwest neighbourhood. This means, once all students from the primary attendance area have been accepted at Constable Daniel Woodall School, students in the secondary attendance area are given first priority to fill available spaces. 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 will have an open attendance boundary, which means any student may pre-enrol at the school. A random selection process will be used if there is not enough space to accommodate all interested students.
  • Yellow bus service will be provided to eligible elementary students in the Windermere Estates Southeast neighbourhood.

For questions about yellow bus service, contact Student Transportation at 780-429-8585.

HOW WE MADE THE DECISION

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.

MANAGING GROWTH

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.
