Chinook’s Edge seeking principal for Penhold school

Chinook’s Edge School Division is advertising for a principal to head the new school in Penhold, which is set to open in the fall of 2014.

Superintendent Kurt Sacher said it’s hoped the principal will be hired by March.

The Grade 7 to 12 school will be attached to the south side of the Penhold Regional Multiplex.

The rural students who go to River Glen School, which opened in 1960 in Red Deer, are scheduled to relocate to a new school in Penhold in 2014.

Red Deer Public School Division then hopes to use River Glen School for its Gateway School alternative program.

Last month, Red Deer city council defeated first reading of the Waskasoo Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan that would have allowed development of 16 houses along 45th Avenue and three more on a portion of 59th Street. This is on Chinook’s Edge land where the River Glen school also sits.

Council felt it wasn’t the right move without an area redevelopment plan that would reflect the vision of the property.

The city will continue to work with Chinook’s Edge on finding a solution for the land, Sacher said earlier.
