Schools in Mature Communities – EPSB December Update

The Edmonton Public School Board has begun a process to look at consolidating, renovating and possibly constructing new schools within Edmonton’s mature communities. The Glenwood community is part of the “Westlawn” working group, looking at options for the following schools:

  • Westlawn
  • Afton
  • Glendale
  • Sherwood

About the working group:

The District asked representatives of important stakeholder groups to participate on a working committee. This committee will provide feedback as we develop several options for a community-driven strategy for the Westlawn area. The working committee includes:

  • school principals
  • District staff
  • parents (one or two from each school)
  • community representatives (one from each community league)

The committees will meet between October 2016 and February 2017 to develop a plan. In spring 2017, the plan will be presented at a public meeting for feedback from the community.

Westlawn Working Group Update


The committee reviewed data to get a better understanding of the students and the community the schools serve. Committee members looked at the data and identified trends or information relevant to our process, as well as other ideas not provided in the data. This information will be used in our next meeting, December 15, 2016, to form new concepts to share with the community in March 2017.

Thank you to everyone that took the time to complete the site evaluation/building considerations survey. The survey is now closed. This information will be used to form new concepts to share with the community in March 2017.
