School Administration Qualities, Attributes and Characteristics
Prior to the selection of a principal for a new school, the Calgary Catholic School District consults with Catholic parents in the new school community to consider and articulate the competencies and attributes that the community would require of the school administrative team. Calgary Catholic School District then utilizes these competencies and attributes in the selection of the school-based administrators for the new school. This consultation took place on November 16 at St. Joan of Arc School. Click the link below to see the document arising from feedback from this meeting.

School Opening Date Update
As noted during our Help Plan Our Future public participation events, and in previous postings on our district website, the new Calgary Catholic School in Aspen Woods had been scheduled to open for September 2016. As a result of a number of delays beyond our control, construction was not able to begin as soon as expected. This has resulted in a delay in the opening date for the new school. A mid-year opening is not necessary, as there is room to accommodate students in existing schools (St. Joan of Arc, John Costello, St. Michael and St. Gregory). Because we are able to manage space constraints and current enrolments at existing schools throughout the 2016-2017 school year, the new Calgary Catholic school in Aspen Woods is now scheduled to open for September 2017. All current boundaries remain the same and boundary changes outlined in the Final Decision Letter – Aspen Woods School Boundary sent home in June (and posted below) will come into effect in September 2017. Kindergarten students residing in Cougar Ridge were able to register at John Costello for the 2015-2016 school year as previously indicated in the June letter. This same offer will be extended to Kindergarten students residing in Cougar Ridge for the 2016-2017 school. Please see the companion document linked below for answers to frequently asked questions.
