REQUEST TO ATTEND A NON-DESIGNATED SCHOOL
Posted on January 8th, 2018
Effective for the 2018-19 school year, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is changing the way in which students apply to attend a non-designated school. From March 1 to 15, 2018, parents of all EIPS students are being asked to pre-enrol their children online and indicate whether their child will be attending their designated school or if they wish to register at a different school. Acceptance at a non-designated school is based on available space–families will be advised of the outcome by April 13, 2018. Because of high enrolment numbers, some schools won’t be accepting any non-designated students. Schools with closed boundaries will be identified prior to the pre-enrolment process.
Please note that should you request a non-designated school for your child and need busing, there are fees associated with this choice. Visit Transportation Services for more information.
As part of the pre-enrolment process, parents are also asked to check and update phone numbers, email addresses, mailing address and other important data – doing so will both make sure that the Division has the most current information available and eliminate the need to fill in the paper Correction Form that has traditionally been sent home every fall. Better yet, families will be able to go online and update their child’s data throughout the year as circumstances change.
To determine your child’s designated school, please check EIPS school boundary maps.
