Edgemont Attendance Area Redesignation

ATTENDANCE AREA REDESIGNATION 

In December, we presented two options to the community. We considered your feedback from the meeting and online survey when making our decision, and we modified one of the options as a result of the input we received.

Effective for the 2018-19 school year, the Edgemont neighbourhood will be redesignated by the following areas: 

 AREA ELEMENTARY DESIGNATION  JUNIOR HIGH DESIGNATION    HIGH SCHOOL DESIGNATION
 Edgemont North  Winterburn School  Michael Phair School  Jasper Place School
 Edgemont Southeast  Michael A. Kostek School 
S. Bruce Smith School   Jasper Place School
 Edgemont Southwest  Thorncliffe School  Parkview School   Ross Sheppard School

REASONS FOR THE 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 number of students living in the area, now and in the future.

CHOOSING TO REMAIN AT MICHAEL A. KOSTEK SCHOOL 

Once a student enrols at a school, they can continue to attend that school. Siblings can also attend as long as the older sibling is currently enrolled at the school when the younger sibling registers.

TIMELINES

The change will be in effect for the 2018-19 school year.

YELLOW BUS SERVICE

Only eligible students who attend their designated school receive yellow bus service.

PRE-ENROLMENT FOR THE 2018-19 SCHOOL YEAR

Parents of students attending a District school can pre-enrol in SchoolZone between March 12 and April 16, 2018. Sign in to your parent account to select either Michael A. Kostek School or your new designated school, depending on where you choose to send your child.

Students are guaranteed entry to their designated school if they register (new students) or pre-enrol(current students) no later than April 16, 2018.
