The Red Deer Public School District is seeking input on five school boundary suggestions before making a final decision of where students will go to school once the new Timberlands school opens.

The district will hold an open house today at Eastview Middle School (4:30 to 7:30 p.m.) and Oct. 11 at Hunting Hills High School (6 to 8:30 p.m.) to collect feedback on the scenarios.

The five scenarios are based on three themes.

The first theme is an English program at the Timberlands school and rightsizing of other schools in the district. The second would see dual track French immersion offered at the Timberlands school and rightsizing the other schools. The third suggestion is a single track French immersion program offered at Mountview Elementary School and rightsizing of other schools.

The district will use an online engagement tool to gather feedback on the benefits and challenges of the five scenarios, based on the three themes.

The boundaries will be decided at the school board’s meeting on Dec. 12.

The kindergarten to Grade 5 school in Timberlands is expected to open in September 2014.
