Follow-Up to Community Information Meeting

Follow-Up to Community Information Meeting
Posted on 02/26/2020

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and administration of Aspen View Public Schools, I want to sincerely thank the parents and community members who attended the Thursday, February 20, 2020 “We’re Better … Together” Community Information Meeting regarding the establishment of a separate school district in Athabasca.

The presentation shared at the meeting is available here.

The intent of the meeting was to provide an overview of the process for the establishment. In reference to some of the questions asked at the Community Information Meeting that Aspen View is not able to answer, we are able to share the following information:

  • A number of people in attendance at the community information meeting indicated that they reside within the proposed Separate School Establishment area, but had not been contacted as part of the census conducted by the petitioners. On February 24, 2020, Aspen View Public Schools communicated a request that those individuals provide Aspen View with their residency information. That information has been forwarded to Alberta Education.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact:
