Registration information is posted on the District Calendar on the public website:
- Mid January: Sibling French Immersion Kindergarten
- Late January - Early February: Kindergarten and Programs of Choice Registration
- First Monday in February up to and including the last Friday in March prior to Spring Break: 'Application for Cross-Boundary Enrollment for Following School Year'
- Late August: New Student Registration for September
The district cannot guarantee that new students registering after June 1st the previous year will be accommodated at their neighbourhood school. Students may be moved to another school up to and including the last day in September if space availability at their neighbourhood school is a problem. This will occur only if absolutely necessary, and will be based on the order in which registrations are received (last in, first moved).
Should this situation arise, students will be moved to the closest school available, and the school district will be responsible for transportation.
If you are registering a student new to the district, please refer to to the Checklist - Information for Student Registration for important registration information. Registration forms should be downloaded, completed, and submitted to your child's catchment area school, along with the supporting documentation outlined in the Checklist - Information for Student Registration
CHILD WITH MEDICAL CONCERN(S):
Please note that is is the responsibility of parents / guardians to ensure that the child's school is aware of any life threatening medical problems your child may have. This includes any change in condition for those students already on our Medical Alert file. Parents are to provide the school with the child's medication in the original container and clearly marked with the student's name. Please check the expiration date of all medications. If the medication requires administration (i.e. injection) it is important that those charged with the procedure have the proper training. Please call the Health Unit at 250-947-8242 for assistance.
Parents of students wishing to attend a school outside of their catchment area next year are required to submit an "Application for Cross-boundary Enrollment for Following School Year" form. Forms are available at schools.
"Applications for Cross-boundary Enrollment for Following School Year" must be submitted during the months of February and March (First Monday in February up to, and including, the last Friday in March prior to Spring Break). Early applications will not be accepted.
- Cross-boundary requests submitted outside the noted time frame must be by way of "Application for Late Cross-boundary Enrollment" form.
District students making a cross-boundary application must FIRST be registered at their catchment school prior to being able to be considered for cross-boundary enrollment.
Siblings of previously approved continuing cross-boundary students may apply directly to the cross-boundary school during this time frame only. If cross-boundary application is outside of this time frame, siblings of previously approved continuing cross-boundary students must register at their catchment school, based on their home address, and submit an "Application for Late Cross-boundary Enrollment" form.
A student who has spent the previous school year in an approved cross-boundary placement at a District 69 school will be deemed to be a catchment area student for the duration of his/her attendance at the school. This status will be retained upon transition to the secondary school which students from that school would normally attend based on district catchment areas (A second cross-boundary application is not required for this transition).
Wherever possible, requests will be approved. The District does, however, reserve the right to rescind any approved cross-boundary transfers up to and including September 30. The decision to return a student to his/her catchment area school will be based on current legislation regarding class sizes and Board Policy 7015.
Transportation for a student choosing to attend a non-catchment school or District program is the responsibility of the parent.
Access to District Programs, are not subject to the cross-boundary application process. Access to these programs are based on availability of space, resources, and staffing. A cross-boundary application is not required.
