Changing Schools


Students are assigned to a school according to the location of their primary residence or as determined by the Director of Schools. In some instances, a student may be permitted to attend a school outside of their zone. 

To change schools, a request must first be made using the Request for Intra-district School Placement form. The Director of Schools will review all intra-district school placement requests in consultation with the school Principal. Placements are not guaranteed.


Consideration of the requested placement may be approved for part of the school year or the full school year if: 

  • There is space in the school for which attendance is sought.
  • The move does not seriously affect the class that the child would typically attend (perceived impact shall be discussed by the Director of Schools and Principal)
  • The parents/guardians provide their own transportation for their child.
  • The move is consistent with other policies.
  • The move serves a justifiably defined need or purpose.

How to change schools

Step 1

Complete the Request for Intra-district School Placement form.

Step 2

Return the completed form to the education centre of your child’s current school. 

Notice: Permission is given on a yearly basis. Parents must re-apply each year to renew their child’s placement through another intra-district school placement request.
