C-100-AR: School Closures


  • Education Act, Section 62
  • Alberta Education Regulations 80/2019, Closure of Schools
  • C-100, School Closure
  • C-100-BR, School Closure

The administration will:

  1. review the viability of each school within the context of division accommodation planning and the annual Capital Plan
  2. create a plan of action with input from the school and its community where there are indications of declining viability;
  3. consider the possibility of school closure when declining viability persists, and enrolment becomes less than 40% of the net capacity, despite development efforts; and
  4. alert the board promptly of the possibility of a school closure.
