New school, new changes
Sep 26, 2013 / 10:00 am
School District 23 will hold a series of meetings in West Kelowna over the next month to discuss issues such as elementary school catchment boundaries and possible expansion of the French Immersion program into middle schools.
Community consultations will be held at Rose Valley Elementary (Sept 30 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.) and Shannon Lake Elementary (Oct 1 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.) to gather input on proposed catchment areas and boundaries for the new Mar Jok Elementary School through the adjustment of catchment areas around both Shannon Lake and Rose Valley elementary schools.
SD23 will also hold a community consultation at Mount Boucherie Secondary Oct 10 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to gather input on potential adjustments to catchment areas across the entire westside area.
The Board of Education hopes to collect input from parents and community members on the establishment and/or adjustment of catchment areas around all elementary schools.
The district is also looking for input on the possibility of establishing a middle school French Immersion program on the westside.
A meeting pertaining to that will be held at Glenrosa Middle School Oct 15 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.
Parents and community members are welcome to participate in any of these meetings to assist the Board of Education of SD23 in making the best decisions possible with respect to education for all students on the westside.
