Catchment Area Scenario Maps

Changes to catchment areas are required to populate Margaret ‘Ma’ Murray Community School (grades K-6), opening September 2018, as well as to provide space at neighbouring schools.

Three catchment area proposed scenarios have been shared during public meetings on October 30, 2017 and November 9th, 2017 (http://www.prn.bc.ca/?p=3312). A third public meeting will take place at the School Board Office on

Tuesday, November 28th at 7pm at 10112 105 Ave

Included below are the three proposed scenarios as PDF files with an urban view and a larger view of the area around Fort St John that will be impacted by catchment changes.

Common Features of Each Scenario

In each of the three presented scenarios the following are common features

  • Grandhaven will move into the Ma Murray catchment
  • Clairmont will move into the Ma Murray catchment
  • Old Fort will move into the Ma Murray catchment
  • Areas north of Fish Creek that currently are in the Bert Ambrose catchment will move into the Ma Murray catchment

Scenario A

In Scenario A the largest change occurs to the CM Finch Catchment.

Scenario A Urban (PDF)

Scenario B

In Scenario B the English catchment for Ecole Central Elementary changes to Ma Murray. Some areas of  Matthews Park will need to have further study to determine new catchment lines for Robert Ogilvie and Duncan Cran that mostly reflect variances already in place. The CM Finch catchment in Scenario B has a North-South orientation bordered mostly by 108 St, 100 St, 100 Ave, and the walking trail near the railway tracks.

Letter – Grad Program implementation schedule change

Please see the linked letter below from the Minister of Education, Rob Fleming, regarding changes to the implementation schedule for the new graduation program.

Re: Changes to the New Curriculum Implementation Schedule for Grades 10–12 (PDF)

The following excerpt is taken from the letter linked above.

When is it changing?

Grade 11–12 curriculum will be fully implemented in September 2019, one year later than previously planned.

The Grade 10 curriculum will be implemented as planned in September 2018.

The new Provincial Literacy Graduation Assessment will be moved to align with the new Grade 11 and 12 curriculum implementation, with the first assessment scheduled for January 2020.

As previously planned, the Provincial Numeracy Graduation Assessment will be taken for the first time in January 2018 as part of a staged roll-out, with another session in June 2018.

For more detailed information, please visit https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/graduation.

How will this change affect me?

Students currently in Grade 9 and younger will continue their learning with the new curriculum throughout their graduation years. Students in this group will participate in the 2018 Graduation Program, and take the new graduation assessments.

Students currently in Grade 10 may take the Provincial Numeracy Assessment starting in January 2018, and they will take the Provincial Literacy Assessment in January, June or August 2020.

Students currently in Grade 11 will continue on the current curriculum and will take the new Numeracy Assessment prior to graduation.

Students currently in Grade 12 will not be affected by these changes, and will continue to work towards completion using the 2004 Graduation Program requirements.
