Saskatchewan Rivers School Division

The Saskatchewan Rivers School Division #119 comprises 33 schools in the Prince Albert, Saskatchewan area, and is the third largest school division in the province. This division has over 9500 students enrolled, with 365 support personnel, 475 teachers, and 88 division owned buses (2200 kids ride the bus everyday). There are a total of 14 microwave towers in the rural centres of the district, which ensure that rural students have access to high speed networking. There are six community schools, and three schools providing French immersion. A police liaison program is provided in the urban centre where the officer has a school office. This division contains the largest high school in Saskatchewan: Carlton Comprehensive High School (operating since 1975). The division is located mainly in the Aspen parkland and boreal forest biomes, and is named for the North Saskatchewan, South Saskatchewan, and Saskatchewan Rivers which are all found in the area it encompasses.

Prior to 1997, the Saskatchewan Rivers School Division was two separate divisions. There were the rural elementaries and Wesmor as the high school for all rural kids (Rural Division). And there was the urban division which had only Carlton for its high school. Since then the divisions have merged and a new high school was created: PACI (Prince Albert Central Institute). The division also merged in the small communities: Christopher Lake, Meath Park, Birch Hills and Kinistino. Following the break-up of the Wakaw School Division, St. Louis school also joined Saskatchewan Rivers. There are also two programs for minorities: the Wonska High School for Aboriginal students and the Star Program for kids with social difficulties. In this division schools can be split into four categories: Elementary, Junior High, Integrated (all grades), and High School.

Both the Prince Albert Catholic School Division and this division are involved in Prince Albert alternative education programs.

Famous quotes containing the words division, school and/or rivers:

    O, if you raise this house against this house
    It will the woefullest division prove
    That ever fell upon this cursed earth.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I never went near the Wellesley College chapel in my four years there, but I am still amazed at the amount of Christian charity that school stuck us all with, a kind of glazed politeness in the face of boredom and stupidity. Tolerance, in the worst sense of the word.... How marvelous it would have been to go to a women’s college that encouraged impoliteness, that rewarded aggression, that encouraged argument.
    Nora Ephron (b. 1941)

    Russian forests crash down under the axe, billions of trees are dying, the habitations of animals and birds are layed waste, rivers grow shallow and dry up, marvelous landscapes are disappearing forever.... Man is endowed with creativity in order to multiply that which has been given him; he has not created, but destroyed. There are fewer and fewer forests, rivers are drying up, wildlife has become extinct, the climate is ruined, and the earth is becoming ever poorer and uglier.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
