Applying to Attend a Non-Designated School
All requests to attend a non-designated school for the coming school year must be submitted online on either the Returning Student Registration Form or New Student Registration Form, as applicable. Acceptance at a requested non-designated school is based on available space. Some EIPS schools have closed boundaries because of high enrolment numbers and will not accept registrations from non-designated students.
The returning student registration process for the 2020-21 school year took place Feb. 1-29, 2020. To be considered for enrolment in a non-designated school for the coming school year, returning families must make that request during the returning student registration process.
NOTE: All requests to attend a non-designated school or out-of-boundary program for returning students in grades 1-12 must be completed during the returning student registration process to be considered for the next school year. The only exception: Students who move into the Division from outside the geographic area, or another community within the Division, following the deadline. All families who apply to attend a non-designated school will be contacted and advised of the outcome the week of March 9-13.
- Students new to the Division enrolling in kindergarten to Grade 12 can request to attend a non-designated school by indicating their preference on the New Student Registration Form—acceptance is based on available space and decided in March.
- Schools with closed boundaries will not accept new registrations (kindergarten to Grade 12) from non-designated students.
