Compiling (where known) from each source the dates of school district organisation, date of first classes, date of last classes, legal land description for school house/s, school district name and number, first teacher. For more information, class pictures, school house pictures, student, teacher or trustee names, school events and history, please see the individual books as listed below. This is a work in progress. This is not the only bibliography page for the SK one room school house project - this is mainly in reference to the alphabetical location listing. School history articles have their own bibliography. Please e-mail if you own a school related book or a local history book not on this list, to help grow bibliography resources available about schools in Saskatchewan. It would be greatly appreciated.
