Attendance Boundaries: New School in Davidson Creek - survey

Planning has begun for the attendance boundaries of the new K-6 school in the Davidson Creek area. A key component of this process is understanding what is important to our families and community as we begin developing possible attendance boundary options for the new school. While we are gathering input from our families and the community, we’ll also review population and demographic information and projected trends. As we look at the elementary attendance boundaries in the northeast quadrant of Sherwood Park, we’ll also look at the junior high boundaries in the same area to determine where students of the new school will attend once they move to Grade 7.

We want to hear from you starting November 4 to share your thoughts about what should be considered throughout the process. Your input will be used to help develop the elementary and junior high attendance-boundary options for the northeast quadrant of Sherwood Park that will eventually lead to the final proposed boundaries. The conversations will continue in the new year and we'll be asking for your feedback on the boundary options once developed. Your input is important throughout this process from start to finish, so we encourage you to get involved from the beginning.

The survey link is available on the Division website along with more information about the project and the various phases of the boundary update process.

PowerSchool Parent & Student Portals

The PowerSchool Parent and Student portals are now accessible at all EIPS schools using your mobile devices and connecting to the school guest wireless networks. The PowerSchool portal allows access to Flex scheduling as well as other PowerSchool information.

Included in this email is information on the Student portal as well as how to access your Powerschool information using your iPad or iPhone and the downloadable application. The Apple IOS and Android applications on first login can take up to 5 minutes to login.  This is due to a large amount of data being downloaded to the mobile device and not because of a slow wireless or Internet connection.

You can connect to the Parent or Student portal by going to https://powerschool.eips.ca/public and logging in with your assigned user ID and password.
