Caught in the Anne Roberts Young school catchment changes and unsure where to register your children? There's an app for that now on the school district's website.
The district's online school catchment locator has been updated with the new catchment boundaries that include the new Anne Roberts Young Elementary School.
School trustees approved catchment changes Monday to fill the new school with students this fall, and lessen overcrowding at Bert Ambrose, Alwin Holland, Robert Ogilvie, and Duncan Cran schools.
Click here to use the locator. Residents will need to enter their address and city to find out where to register.
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.
The two-storey, $31.1-million 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.
