Find your school jurisdiction

Alberta has 61 public, separate and francophone school jurisdictions.

Voters who are Catholic and live within the boundaries of a separate Catholic school jurisdiction vote for the Catholic board. All others vote for the public board. Francophones can vote for trustees for the public or Catholic francophone jurisdiction for their area.
