Biographical history

The Edmonton Protestant Public School District was established in February 1885, the first local government in the Edmonton area. The role of the district was to establish a public school system in the Edmonton area. In 1907, the name of the district was changed to the Edmonton School District No. 7. Throughout the years, the District has expanded through amalgamations with nearby smaller school districts.
