Current Student Pre-enrolment


Each spring, parents across the District pre-enrol to tell us the school they’d like their child to attend next year. Pre-enrolment helps families plan and allows schools to prepare based on the number of students expected to attend in the fall.

In previous years, parents pre-enrolled through a paper passport sent home with each student. We’ve made the process faster, easier and more secure by moving it online.

Choosing a School

Students are guaranteed entry to their designated school if registered (new students) or pre-enrolled (current students) no later than April 18. Use the Find a School tool to find your designated school.

A student may also attend any other school in the District, as long as:

  • the school has available space
  • the student meets any entrance criteria of that school

If the number of students who want to attend a school or program exceeds the available space, applicants from outside the school’s designated attendance area will be chosen by random selection.

PRE-ENROL IN SCHOOLZONE

Sign in to SchoolZone between 9 a.m. on March 13 and 4 p.m. on April 18, 2017 to select your child’s preferred school for the 2017-2018 school year. 

When you sign in to your parent SchoolZone account on your computer, tablet or smartphone:

  • choose the “Next Year” tab
  • select the name of the child you are pre-enrolling
  • follow the instructions to select your child’s preferred school for next year

COURSE SELECTION

Course selection is not part of selecting your child's preferred school in SchoolZone. Junior high and high school students will choose their specific courses (e.g., fine arts, career and technology studies) through a separate process at their current school.

UPDATE YOUR ADDRESS

If your address has changed, please update your information with your child’s current school before pre-enrolling in SchoolZone. You may be asked to provide one or more of the following to verify your address:

  • driver’s license
  • utility bill
  • lease agreement
  • property tax bill
