Rocky View Schools will be hosting a second public consultation and online engagement session to assist in formally deciding the grade configuration and attendance area for a new school, opening in September 2024 in Langdon.
In May, the school division presented an option for an accommodation plan which would impact the grade configurations of Sarah Thompson School, Langdon School, and Indus School.
The proposed accommodation plan would also have an impact on the attendance boundaries for select rural areas currently attending Chestermere High School.
Following feedback received through the consultation process, the school board has prepared two additional options.
Parents, guardians and community members are being invited to learn more about the additional plans under consideration and to provide their input at a public meeting, Oct. 17.
The meeting will take place at Langdon School, beginning with a presentation by Rocky View Schools administration, followed by a feedback session.
Feedback to the school board may also be provided online starting Oct. 17, through www.RVSEngage.com. The school board will be closing their window to receive feedback on Nov. 13, at 9 a.m.
Going forward, the board plans to use information received from the public to help determine an accommodation plan for the new school.
Stakeholders will be given an opportunity to present to the school board at its public meeting, Nov. 16, starting at 10 a.m. Requests to present are required to be submitted no later than 12 p.m. on Nov. 9.
Rocky View Schools will be considering the accommodation plan for the new school in Langdon at a public meeting, Dec. 14 – this date being subject to change. The school board has stated that a notice will be issued to all stakeholders regarding any decision following the public meeting.
More information regarding the new school and how to be involved with the decision-making process is available online.
