The pre-enrolment process for all current EIPS students who will be returning in 2018-19 took place March 1-15. Families received an email on March 1 with the link to complete the pre-enrolment process through the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
Effective for the 2018-19 school year, EIPS is changing the registration system for returning students to a new pre-enrolment process. The pre-enrolment process allows the Division to verify all student information for every child prior to the start of the new school year.
If your child currently attends school within EIPS and will be returning the following year, you will go through the pre-enrolment process to confirm your child’s enrolment in a school for the upcoming school year using the online Returning Student Registration Form. At that time, families can indicate the school their child plans to attend; apply to attend a non-designated school, if applicable; and update any required student information—such as phone numbers, addresses and emergency contacts. If circumstances change, families also have the ability to update their child’s data at any time throughout the year. This eliminates the need for the Correction Forms that were sent home with students each September.
To be considered for enrolment in a non-designated school in the upcoming school year, you must make that request through the pre-enrolment process. The pre-enrolment process eliminates the annual Boundary Exemption Request Process. Now, returning student families who want to apply to enrol their child at a non-designated school can do so through the pre-enrolment process—acceptance is based on available space. Some EIPS schools have closed boundaries because of high enrolment numbers and will not accept non-designated students for the 2018-19 school year.
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 two-week pre-enrolment 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 in April.
