    Administrative history

    In 1995, Westlock School Division No. 37, County of Barrhead No. 11 and Swan Hills School District No. 5109 merged to form Pembina Hills Regional Division No. 7.

    Prior to 1947, school districts of the Barrhead and Westlock area formed part of Pembina School Division No. 37. In 1947, Pembina School Division No. 37 divided to form Barrhead School Division and Westlock School Division. Barrhead became a County in 1959 while Westlock remained as a school division. The first school district in Swan Hills (Oil Hills School District No. 5109) formed in 1959.

    The Division currently maintains 15 community schools, 2 colony schools, a virtual school, and 2 outreach centers. The schools include the Alberta Institute Learning Centre, Fort Assiniboine School, Swan Hills School, Neerlandia School, W.R. Frose School, Hillman Colony School, Sunniebend Colony School, Barrhead Outreach School, Westlock Outreach School, Barrhead Elementary, Busby School, Dapp School, Dunstable School, Meadowview School, Westlock Elementary, Jarvie School, Barrhead Composite School, R.F. Staples School, and Vimy School.

    Physical condition

    Immediate source of acquisition

    In 1970, the County of Barrhead donated the material to the Provincial Archives of Alberta on a permanent loan basis. In 2000, the Provincial Archives of Alberta sought to change the status of the records from "permanent loan" to "gift" in order to clearly establish custody and control over the records.

    However, following the dissolution of the County of Barrhead No. 11 Board of Education in 1995 and the creation of its successor body, the Pembina Hills Regional Division No. 7, the County of Barrhead no longer possessed authority over the records' disposition. In 2002, the Board of Trustees of Pembina Hills Regional Division No. 7 granted gift status to the records.

    In 2008, Pembina Hills Regional Division No. 7 made a second donation to the Provincial Archives of Alberta.
