Change is Coming - Public Meetings for Elementary Catchment Changes

School District 60 is looking forward to the opening of Margaret Ma Murray Community School, located in the northwest quadrant of Fort St John, in September, 2018.  Building this school has been an exciting, collaborative project that will enhance the educational offerings of the district as well as provide some relief for current space constrictions in a growing school district.

Part of the planning process requires the redrawing of some elementary school catchment area boundaries in order to populate the new school.  These changes will potentially affect families with children currently attending  CM Finch, Ecole Central School of the Arts, Charlie Lake Elementary School and Bert Ambrose Elementary School.  

It is very important that trustees gather public input on all of the issues and variables to be taken into consideration as the planning process proceeds.  In order to gather information, three public meetings have been scheduled as follows:

Monday, October 30th at 7pm at Ecole Central Elementary School of the Arts
10215 99th Avenue

Thursday, November 9th at 7pm at CM Finch Elementary School
10904 106th Street

Tuesday, November 28th at 7pm at School District 60 Board Office
10112 105 Ave

Written submissions will also be accepted by the Board up to December 22nd, 2017.  They can be dropped off at the School Board Office.  Your trustees very much look forward to hearing from you.
