The purpose of the administrative boundary change between St. Kateri Tekakwitha and St. Timothy is to alleviate growth pressures at St. Kateri Tekakwitha. Currently, St. Kateri Tekakwitha has nine portables on site, and St. Timothy has no portables. Within these two school boundaries, there are approximately 1658-2985 low density residential units planned with the majority of units falling within St. Kateri’s existing school boundary. The long term solution for this area is the new Doon South school, which is subject to Ministry funding and land acquisition.
The table below shows the enrolment projections for both schools:
As a partial interim solution, the school board’s Executive Council approved moving the area outlined in red on the map below from St. Kateri to St. Timothy effective immediately. This boundary generally follows Blair Creek Drive to Stauffer Woods Trail. This area currently falls within St. Kateri’s boundary and contains 660-860 low density residential units, which equates to approximately 66-86 future students. St. Timothy is under capacity, and has the ability to add up to six portables without any modifications to the school site.
