The opening of this school will have an impact on grade configurations and attendance areas of the existing schools in the Evergreen community.

The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) is scheduled to open a second elementary school for the community of Cranston during the 2020-21 school year. The opening of Sibylla Kiddle School will have an impact on grade configurations and attendance areas of the existing schools in the communities.
After careful review and consideration of the feedback collected at the open house in September and the online survey opportunity in October, a decision has been made to move forward with “Option A:”
- new school attendance area for Sibylla Kiddle and Cranston schools (see map)
- K-4 regular program grade configuration at both elementary schools for 2020-21 school year
- K-5 grade re-configuration at both elementary schools for 2021-22 school year and beyond
- Grades 5 –9 grade configuration at Dr. George Stanley School for the 2020-21 school year and Grades 6 –9 for the 2021-22 school year and beyond
This decision considers the feedback we heard:
- keep students attending school as close to home as possible
- balance enrolment between the three schools
- provide students with access to quality learning environments
We believe this is a sustainable plan that provides strong learning opportunities for students while balancing enrolment across schools within the Cranston community for K-9.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the in-person session and online survey. Your thoughtful contributions have made a meaningful difference in our decision-making.The comments made during the open house and on the survey can be read on our website.
