As the walls are coming up at new elementary schools in South Surrey and Clayton, the process of establishing new catchment boundaries has begun – and we want students and parents to have a say.

In South Surrey, Site 180 (17325 2nd Ave.) and Site 206 (16666 23rd Ave.) are scheduled to open in 2021 and will have space for 1,177 students, easing overcrowding at nearby elementary schools. In Clayton, Maddaugh Road (19405 76th Ave.) is scheduled to open in September 2021 while Regent Road (18711 74th Ave.) has been through the design process, and once it goes through the tender process, an anticipated opening date will be announced.

The goal in developing new catchment boundaries is to ensure student numbers are balanced between nearby elementary schools. In Clayton, these include Clayton, Hazelgrove and Katzie elementary schools. In South Surrey, these include East Kensington, Hall's Prairie, Morgan, Pacific Heights, Rosemary Heights and Sunnyside elementary schools.

The district has created three options for the Clayton consultation and five options for the South Surrey consultation. All options aim to finding that balance, while also taking into consideration future residential growth and Choice Program locations.

These consultations will be an opportunity to define the culture and character of new school communities. Parent and student input are an important part of this process.

The catchment boundary options for Clayton and South Surrey can be reviewed HERE online and in downloadable Information Packages. There are maps illustrating the proposals, with accompanying charts that provide further details about each option.

Input is being sought via online surveys on the consultation website: Clayton survey | South Surrey survey

The surveys are also available in written form at the individual schools, or can be printed from the consultation pages and returned to your school. Feedback can also be submitted by email to consultations@surreyschools.ca.

Two series' of community forums are scheduled to share information with the Clayton and South Surrey communities about the potential boundary changes. Each forum runs from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.:
