Learners Preparing for the Challenges of Tomorrow
School Catchment

In the spring of 2012, School District 47 commissioned a review of their Elementary School Boundaries. The principles surrounding the review were to:

    • Maintain a viable enrolment at all elementary schools.

    • Reduce or eliminate the number of free-standing portable classrooms at schools.

    • Strive for an improved alignment of elementary boundaries and transportation objectives.

    • Endeavour to achieve boundaries that align visually with significant roads and / or physical features.

    • Encourage students to go to their home school.

    • Minimize the transition or disruption of families living in the affected areas from the "old" boundaries to the "new" boundaries

Bus boundaries can be found below. To view an image of our bus catchment areas please visit the busing map page.
