Prairie Valley School Division is one of 28 school divisions
in Saskatchewan. It is located in the southeast area of the
province and encompasses 27,000 square kilometres,
spanning a geographic area from Regina Beach and Bethune
to the west, Kelliher and Lipton to the north, Milestone,
Sedley and Montmartre to the south and Whitewood and
Kennedy-Langbank to the east. Our geography greatly
affects our service delivery and cost models.
Prairie Valley has 39 schools located in 32 communities.
unique in that it is entirely rural, consisting of towns, villages,
resort villages and rural municipalities, with no urban centre.
There are two Hutterite colony schools in the division: Arm River
and Lajord. Fifteen First Nations are in close proximity to the
division: Piapot, Muscowpetung, Pasqua, Standing Buffalo,
