Proposed School Boundary Revisions - McNair

The Richmond School District has recommended 7 boundary changes for McNair. The purpose of a school boundary change is to reflect the regional strategy contained in the Long Range Facilities Plan. It is important to note that families that have a child currently attending McNair will:

  • not be affected by the boundary change,
  • have the choice to remain in their current catchment or transfer to their newly proposed catchment,
  • have the choice to enrol any siblings in their current catchment or their newly proposed catchment.

Who is affected?

  • As of September 2020, all new students living in an adjusted catchment area will be part of the newly formed catchment.

The proposed boundary changes can be found in the “Document Library” section on the right-hand side of this page.

If you have any feedback, please respond by November 15, 2019 by providing your comments online or by submitting written feedback to the school office. All comments will be considered prior to the Board of Education making a decision on the proposed boundary changes on December 11, 2019.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

my current address is at west side of Garden City rd, Saunders area, it's very close to Mcrobert secondary, school is within 15 mins walking distance, the child can go to school by himself, I do not understand and don't agree to change the catchment school to McNair, it's unreasonable, if change to Mcnair, the parents should drive the child to school everyday, it's really a problem for parents who have to go to work everyday. Pls reconsider and keep Mc Robert as our catchment school.

I have to agree with kcdykes. It makes no sense that the Hamilton students would not change to Cambie Secondary. Especially, if the new boundary East of Hamilton would go to Cambie. Cambie is closer to Hamilton than McNair and students would require less travel time & fuel costs to/from school.

I do not understand the logic of the proposed changes in the boundary - McNair to Cambie. It is counter-intuitive to have the Hamilton area remain with McNair. It is also counter-intuitive to have an area that is south of McNair to be allocated to Cambie's catchment. You will literally have buses passing each other as they travel far north to drop South Richmond students to Cambie and North East students south to McNair. Not the best use of school district resources. I feel these proposed changes are short sighted and non-sensical. It really feels that the boundaries are manufactured and manipulated to serve some purpose other than providing access to schools for students who live in the areas closest to those schools. I would ask that you consider returning the Hamilton area to Cambie Secondary.
