Summary of Review School Change Recommendations

Summary of Proposed Changes Affecting West Royalty School 
  1. Colonel Gray and Charlottetown Rural families of school will be amalgamated to become one family.
  2. Enrollment in a school within the amalgamated family will be determined by geographical zones.
  3. Intermediate and senior high school enrollment will be determined by geographical zone and not the elementary school that a student attended. 
    • Most of those in the proposed West Royalty zone would be zoned for Queen Charlotte, while a small portion would be zoned for Stone Park.
    • The geographical zones for the two high schools have not yet changed.  The recommendation is to review this at  future date.  The elementary or junior high school that is attended will not determine the high school that is is attended.  Enrollment for high school will be determined by geographical zone.  
  4. The geographical zone that will feed West Royalty School has changed slightly. 
    • An area near Brackley Beach (previously zoned for Parkdale) is now zoned for West Royalty. 
    • The area near Orchard Hill and Louis Point Park (previously dual-zoned for West Royalty/West Kent) is now zoned for Spring Park School. 
  5. Students that are currently attending West Royalty from outside this new zone may be required to attend the school for which they are properly zoned.  This may occur despite previous approval to attend a school out-of-zone.  (Note: Zoning policy and enforcement is awaiting clarification.)
  6. French Immersion (K to 6) program will be added to West Royalty Elementary School.
