Important Boundary Consultation Update
Dear Parents and Guardians,
As you are likely aware, the South Surrey-White Rock area of the Surrey School District is currently operating over capacity and based on projections from both the provincial government and the City of Surrey, enrolment will continue to grow in the neighborhood around Edgewood Elementary.
As such, the district has worked with the Ministry of Education to secure a new elementary school, which is currently under construction. Ta’talu Elementary will be located at 1970 165A St. This new school will provide a wonderful learning environment for students and will begin to address the capacity issues at Edgewood Elementary.
To gather community feedback, we will be engaging in a public consultation process to discuss future options with families and community members who currently attend Edgewood Elementary. Details on options being considered will be sent home with students on September 18th. This information will also be shared through our district website. Families will be able to share their thoughts and provide detailed feedback through a survey.
In addition, two evening community forums will be held. Each forum will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m. These sessions have been scheduled for the following dates:
• September 25, 2023 – At Edgewood Elementary in the school gym. Please RSVP your attendance, with the school, so that we can ensure we have prepared materials appropriately.
• September 28, 2023 – A link for an online forum will be provided.
The information presented at each forum will be identical.
The consultation period will conclude on October 27th. Community contributions and comments will be summarized in a report for the Surrey Board of Education and presented at the December public Board meeting.
Please watch for information being sent home on September 18th.
Neder Dhillon, Assistant Superintendent
