Input sought on school boundary changes

School district officials are seeking input from parents and other residents on six proposed changes to elementary school catchment boundaries.

The changes are minor, would affect a small number of students – less than 50 students, the majority of whom are already attending the proposed new school – and are primarily housekeeping changes that reflect the closure of Mount Benson elementary school and the construction of the Nanaimo Parkway, as well as family choices.

The proposed changes would move a portion of the Pleasant Valley, Coal Tyee, Forest Park, Quarterway and Chase River catchment areas to another school catchment area.

Details are available online at www.sd68.bc.ca or parents can drop in to an open house on Monday Nov. 28 from 6-8 p.m. at the District Administration Centre, 395 Wakesiah Ave., to obtain more detailed information and provide feedback.

Feedback can also be submitted to communications@sd68.bc.ca.

If approved, the changes would take effect next September and students currently enrolled would not be expected to change schools.
