About The School

Foothills School Division (FSD) received Alberta Education approval December 2015, for a new K-9 school, west 32nd Street, Okotoks Community Campus.  The school will have a student population of 700 students on opening with 900 students at full build out. The land was purchased from the Wedderburn family and land title was transferred to the Town of Okotoks on September 2, 2016.  The Town of Okotoks completed site servicing in 2017 with the build of the campus road and servicing to the property line for a 5.4 acre school site adjacent to a 5.3 acre recreation field to the west.  FSD, in partnership with Alberta Infrastructure and prime consultant Group2, completed site and building design fall 2017.

 

 

Interim Name: Okotoks Foothills School Division K-9 School
Location: Okotoks Community Campus – 32nd Street North (permanent address will be finalized Spring 2018).
Budget: Approximately $20 million
Open to Students: Planned September 2019

Naming of the School: Naming Committee first meeting January 2018.  FSD Board of Trustee approval April 2018.

Attendance Area Boundary

Boundaries will be finalized and established in Spring 2019.

FSD selects attendance areas that allow as many students as possible to attend a school close to home.  We do our best to keep families and communities together.  Careful consideration is given to ensure the school doesn’t fill up too quickly while a community is still growing.  The school will carefully manage enrolment to make sure there’s room for new students who move into the school’s attendance area.  We hope this will minimize the need to change the attendance area boundary in the future.

The Boundary Review process is currently underway with the anticipated timeline included below:

  • February 2018  -  Background information being prepared with the breakdown of students residing in each neighborhood, community or boundary.
  • May 14, 2018  -  Initial Public Meeting at Dr. Morris Gibson School (7:00pm) to outline process and expectations for school families and public to boundary review.
  • September 2018  -  Boundary Review Committee Formed to gather feedback and recommend options for Board of Trustees to consider.  The committee will provide an opportunity for individuals to send in recommendations and comments.
  • November 15, 2018  -  Report to the Board of Trustees with available options.
  • December 2018  -  Board approves available options.
  • January 2019  -  Public Meeting for feedback on board approved options.
  • March 2019  -  Board Approves Boundary Enrolment for new K-9 school.

On behalf of the Foothills School Division (FSD) Board of Trustees, I would like to thank-you for attending the community meeting for the new Okotoks K-9 School Attendance Boundary Review on May 14, 2018.  We appreciated the opportunity to openly communicate the process and timelines with you.   We value your time and participation in this process and look forward to your further participation this fall as we create attendance boundary proposals. 
 
Our goal is to seek community input through open public forums as the process moves forward.  The Board of Trustees is looking forward to our new K-9 school to continue to provide quality educational opportunities to our students and families in the growing community of Okotoks.  
 
I encourage you to continue to check the FSD webpage (www.fsd38.ab.ca/NewSchool) for further information and announcements about our new school.

Once again, thank you for your interest and involvement.

Sincerely,
Larry Albrecht, Chair,  Board of Trustees

 

 

School Naming

Submissions have now closed.  We are no longer accepting school names, thank you for your participation.

FSD is working with our naming committee to determine a school name for the new K-9 School, west 32nd Street, Okotoks Community Campus.  As per FSD Administrative Procedure 541, a committee has been formed with members from each representative group of students, parents, local teaching staff, school administration and the community at large.  This committee will make a recommendation to FSD Board of Trustees regarding the school name, with final approval by the Board of Trustees.

School Principal

Foothills School Division is pleased to announce Mrs. Rebecca Forchuk as the inaugural Principal of our newest K-9 school in Okotoks opening in September 2019.

Mrs. Forchuk earned her Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Lethbridge. In 2011 she completed her Masters of Education (School Administration) degree from the University of Gonzaga.

Rebecca began her teaching career with Northern Gateway School Division at the middle school where she gained experience in diverse grade levels and subject areas.   She joined the Foothills family in 2006 as a teacher and Instructional Coach at École Okotoks Junior High School.   In 2009, Rebecca embarked on her administrative career as a Vice-Principal at C. Ian McLaren School before transferring to Red Deer Lake School as the Vice-Principal.   Since 2012, Rebecca has been the Director of Staff Development where she supports Teacher professional learning, Support Staff development and Administrator learning to build capacity of all staff to effectively meet the Provincial goals of education in all FSD schools. Her strong understanding of local, provincial and international systems will serve the students and families of FSD’s newest school well.

As a student-centered leader, Rebecca has nurtured collaborative learning cultures that are safe, caring and inclusive which focus on meaningful learning opportunities that engage all students.  Rebecca collects information from her communities, listens carefully and considers all voices when designing next steps for learning.  Rebecca believes “all kids can learn and it is our responsibility to ensure all kids do learn”.  Indeed, students, staff, families and the broader school community can expect Rebecca to undertake fulsome community engagement as she plans for a successful opening and collaboratively cultivates a clear vision for learning in our newest school.

Assistant Superintendent Allen Davidson offers that “Rebecca Forchuk is a leader who has built a high level of trust with staff across our school system. We will definitely miss her leadership on our system team. At the same time, the students and families who attend our new school community will benefit from her breadth of knowledge, innovation, and relentless focus on ensuring every student gets what they need and is successful. We look forward to collaborating with Rebecca and all of our Okotoks Principals as we engage our entire Okotoks school community in bringing our new school into the FSD Family.”
