'Multi-track' schools pitched to ease Calgary space crunch
Keeping Calgary schools filled with students year-round could do wonders to combat a space crunch likely to dog the city's education system for many years to come, suggests a trustee. But Judy Hehr, Calgary Board of Education representative for Wards 8 and 9, said moving to a "multi-track" model in communities due up for new facilities will only work if the parents get behind — even champion it. The CBE became the first school board in Canada to attempt the multi-track, year-round approach when it threw open the doors of Riverbend Elementary in 1996.
