EDMONTON SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 7
Our Board was legally constituted on February 3, 1885 under the North West Territories Department of Education. It is the oldest established school district in the Province of Alberta.
The official incorporation allowed the Board of Trustees to collect taxes from the residents of the settlement of Edmonton.
Edmonton School District No. 7 was the first recognized form of local government in the Edmonton community to impose taxes on residents.
This provided the foundation for future development of educational facilities in the Edmonton settlement.
