Dakota Dunes CDC grant provides bus passes for City Park students

Posted on:

A $25,000 grant from the Dakota Dunes Community Development Corporation has made it possible for City Park Collegiate to provide much-needed free monthly bus passes to its financially challenged students. Research has identified transportation as a substantial barrier to City Park students achieving academic success.

“I know the support of the Dakota Dunes Community Development Corporation has played an essential role in improving our students learning,” said Scott Farmer, principal of City Park Collegiate. “This occurs not only by removing the financial barrier that comes from having to acquire a bus pass, but also by building a stronger sense of belonging here at the school and within the larger community. The bus support indicates to students that they have many people and organisations that care about their well-being while supporting them in their education.”

Students are often referred to City Parks’ innovative programming due to previous scholastic difficulties experienced in a more traditional high school setting. Students and parents alike have expressed gratitude for the donation.
“I can now get to school regularly and apply for jobs, visit my friends and family. I can go anywhere I want, whenever I want,” said Drake Lacerte, a Grade 10 student at City Park.

“Keanu getting the bus pass has made him into a little independent guy,” said Chris Crowe, whose son attends City Park. “He has had quite the journey from having a head injury to moving to another city and finding a school that accepts him. We have found our place with City Park.”
Saskatoon Public Schools is the largest school division in the province. We operate 43 elementary schools, 11 secondary schools, and two associate schools. We serve more than 22,000 students and employ approximately 2,300 professional and support staff. Learn more at
