Feb. 10, 2020 --

At its Regular Public Meeting held January 28, 2020, the Board of Education for School District No. 57 (Prince George) approved amendments to motions that were adopted at its Regular Public Meeting of December 3, 2019.

The amended motion for Spruceland Traditional Elementary School states:

"That the transition process, for September 2020 for grade 7 students who at January 28, 2020 are attending Spruceland Traditional Elementary School, entitles students, who at the time of transition have siblings enrolled in grades 8-12 in the regular program at Duchess Park Secondary School, to transition to the regular program offered at Duchess Park Secondary School for the 2020/21 school year."

The amended motion for Edgewood Elementary School states:

"That the transition process, for September 2020 for grade 7 students who at January 28, 2020 are attending Edgewood Elementary School, entitles students, who at the time of transition have siblings enrolled in grades 8-12 in the regular program at Duchess Park Secondary School, to transition to the regular program offered at Duchess Park Secondary School for the 2020/21 school year."

The December 3, 2019 motions stemmed from revisions to the catchment boundaries for D.P. Todd Secondary School and Duchess Park Secondary School commencing in the 2020/21 school year.

Decisions made by the Board of Education at its Regular Public Meeting of October 29, 2019 saw Spruceland Traditional Elementary School and Edgewood Elementary School removed from the Duchess Park Secondary School catchment and included in the D.P. Todd Secondary School catchment. The decisions were made in response to ongoing overcapacity at Duchess Park Secondary School. The January 28, 2020 amendments looked to provide clarity in regards to timelines.
