Balancing Enrolment at Schools in the Community of Panorama Hills
Over the past few years, student enrolment at Captain Nichola Goddard 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 Area office, CBE Property, Planning and Transportation, Communication and Engagement Services and principals at Panorama Hills, Buffalo Rubbing Stone, and Captain Nichola Goddard schools have worked together to explore possible options. This exploration resulted in a recommended plan shared at a parent meeting Nov. 21, 2018 at Captain Nichola Goddard School. View the Nov. 21 presentation.
We are making modifications to the plan to respond to feedback and to adjust for transportation implications in the far west of the community. The modified plan will be shared on school websites by Dec. 19. At that time, we will also launch an online survey to gather your feedback on the modified plan. The survey will remain open until Jan. 9, 2019.
Decision-makers will review feedback from the online survey and confirm the decision by Jan. 11, 2019. The timing of the decision is to provide kindergarten families with information prior to the start of kindergarten registration on Jan. 14, 2019.
