Altadore School Accommodation

Decision

The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) advises that due to the continued enrolment growth at Altadore School a designation change will be implemented for the north west portion of the current Altadore School attendance area.

Effective April 24, 2019 all new registrations from the re-designated area will be accepted at Richmond School (see Parent Letter and Designation Notice). New registrations already submitted to Altadore School from the re-designated area will be sent to Richmond School including all new Kindergarten registrations received for the 2019-20 school year.

Public Meetings To Date   

On Jan. 16, we shared two scenarios for addressing high enrolment at Altadore School with parents and community members. Through this in-person session and the online survey, many parents said they wanted more time to understand the situation and the options that are available to address issue. We responded to that feedback by providing parents and the community with more time. 

On March 12, we held a second meeting to review the two original options being considered and present a third option – status quo. This option would mean that students currently designated to Altadore School continue to attend the school.

For more information and to provide further input on the options presented, see the links below.

The CBE will communicate a decision about which option will be implemented for the 2019-20 school year by April 30, 2019.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

We have posted responses to frequently asked questions from the January meeting on this page. We appreciated your patience as we took time to provide answers that are clear and comprehensive.

Background

Over the past few years, student enrolment at Altadore School has been increasing and the school is projected to be over-capacity for the next several years. A plan is needed to address student enrolment at the school, ensuring effective use of space to support student learning.

The CBE's Approach to Community Engagement

Last modified on

Dialogue is the Calgary Board of Education’s approach to community engagement. It is a mutually respectful exchange of ideas that acknowledges and celebrates the diversity within the CBE community. It represents our ongoing commitment to involve people in decisions that affect them.

We know we make better decisions when we listen and work together to solve problems and find solutions. When we do, our students are better equipped to become successful citizens who contribute their ideas, passion and energy to society.

There can be no dialogue without you. Find out more about Dialogue as well as current and past system engagement initiatives on the CBE’s website​.​​​​​​
