The Calgary Board of Education has committed to reviewing its transportation model to ensure we continue to deliver safe and reliable transportation that is financially sustainable.  While we do not have transportation here at Glendale School, many of our students will be utilizing transportation as they move into junior high and later, into high school.  So while it may not seem relative to you now, decisions around transportation definitely have the potential to impact you and your child in the future.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 15 engagement workshops and the online survey. A summary of all in-person comments has been posted and the online comments was posted this weekend at
From the dialogue that took place, five transportation scenarios have been developed. These scenarios are now posted on our website at . Discussion and feedback about these scenarios will take place at the Community Forums on May 3 and 4. Please remember to register for these events using the links below.
Participants should arrive at 6:15 p.m. to confirm their attendance at the door. Sessions are limited, so register early.
