School District 60 trustees approved student catchment boundaries for the the new Anne Roberts Young Elementary School on Monday afternoon.
Trustees approved the last of seven options drafted during consultations over the last several months, known as Scenario G.
The new school will help alleviate the classroom crunch at Bert Ambrose, Alwin Holland, Robert Ogilvie, and Duncan Cran schools.
The new catchments will give Anne Roberts Young a first cohort of an estimated 285 students when it opens in September 2020.
The changes will have the most impact at Alwin Holland, which is at 144% of capacity with 383 students this year. The new catchment will move nearly 180 students to Anne Roberts Young.
Bert Ambrose, at 116% capacity with 309 students, is expected to see around 80 students shift to Anne Roberts Young; while around 60 students will be moved from Robert Ogilvie, also at 116% capacity with 309 students.
A school locator map is expected to be made available through the district’s website as soon as it becomes available
The two-storey, $31.1-million Anne Roberts Young school is being built on 112 Avenue across from the hospital, and will include seats for 505 students, as well as a neighbourhood learning centre, a daycare, and multi-purpose spaces for community use.
Broyden Bennett was named its first principal last week.
