Manitoba Organization: York School District No. 1783

The York School District was established formally in March 1915 and a schoolhouse site was reportedly selected within 19-12-27 West in what is now the Rural Municipality of Wallace-Woodworth. Surviving records suggest that a building was never built, and available daily attendance registers indicate that, from its inception, students in the York School District attended classes at Elkhorn School under the tutelage of Elkhorn School District teachers. The district was consolidated into the Elkhorn School District in January 1964 and its catchment area eventually became part of the Fort La Bosse School Division.
