Current Student Pre-enrolment

Each spring, parents across the 
Division 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.

Choosing a School

Students are guaranteed entry to their designated school if registered (new students) or pre-enrolled (current students) no later than April 15, 2020. Use the Find a School tool to find your designated school.

A student may also attend any other school in the Division, 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.

Alternative Programs

If a student applies to an alternative program and is unsuccessful, the student can:

  • return to the school they are currently attending
  • attend their designated school
  • attend another Division school that has space in planned classes 


Sign in to SchoolZone between 9 a.m. on March 9 and 4 p.m. on April 15, 2020 to select your child’s preferred school for the 2020-21 school year. 

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

  • choose Next Year
  • 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 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., core courses, fine arts, career and technology studies) through a separate process at their current school.


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 kinds of documentation to verify your address:

  • driver’s license
  • utility bill
  • home insurance 
  • property tax bill


Talk to your child’s current school principal if you:

  • don’t know the password for your parent SchoolZone account
  • need help signing in to SchoolZone
  • have a question about completing pre-enrolment in SchoolZone
  • need a paper form instead
