Evansburg/ Wildwood Facility Review

The Board of Trustees from Grande Yellowhead Public School Division (GYPSD) was reviewing the school facilities in Wildwood and Evansburg. We invited our communities and families to learn more about the process and to provide valuable input on how we can provide the best learning environments and educational programs for our students in Evansburg and Wildwood. 

The division was proud to host community engagement sessions in both Evansburg and Wildwood in June 2018, to gather input from our communities, as well as share some information about the facility review process. A summary of input received from these engagement sessions is now available. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we sincerely thank everyone who has shared their voice with the division on this review. If you wish to receive further information on this process via email, please forward your request to board@gypsd.ca and we will ensure to include you in our community distribution list.
