In preparation for the 2017-2018 school year, the Board of Education is seeking the cooperation of parents/guardians in registering their child on the following dates.  Pre-registration is requested in order to provide the School District Administration the time to plan staffing to meet school needs.

Schools are open to take registration for Kindergarten from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. between January 23, 2017 and March 9, 2017.

The School District will make every effort to place students who have registered by March 9, 2017 in their catchment area school.  Students registering after March 9, 2017 may not be granted place in their catchment area school.

To be eligibile for entry to school in September 2017 students must be five years of age on or before December 31, 2017.  A birth certificate, proof of immunization, a BC Care Card and parent/guardian proof of ordinarily resident will be required at the time of registration.

Acceptable documentation for evidence that parent/guardian is “ordinarily resident”:

  • BCMSP (BC CareCard) coverage AND one item from the list of supporting documentation that follows; or
  • Valid BC Services Card (replacement for BC CareCard) AND one item from the list of supporting documentation that follows

Supporting documentation for evidence that parent/guardian is “ordinarily resident” (address must match the address listed on the Student’s Registration & Verification Form):

  • Provincial Driver’s License
  • Document indicating British Columbia resident (i.e. utility bill)
  • Proof of ownership of a dwelling or long-term lease or rental of a dwelling
  • A current income tax return filed as a BC resident

CMSD82 New Student Registration & Cross Boundary Application – 2017-2018 School Year  (PDF Format)

 

School District 82 Policy 1030 outlines student attendance/catchment area procedures in accordance with Ministry of Education policies on Schools of Choice.  It is important that parents take note of specific deadlines defined within this policy and ensure the procedures listed below are followed:

  1. Students must be registered at their catchment area school.
  2. Cross Boundary/Out-of-Catchment Applications:  After registering at your catchment area school, applications must be received at your school of choice by February 24, 2017 for the 2017-2018 school year.
  3. New In-Catchment Registrations:  Registrations will be received up to March 9, 2017 for new students including Kindergarten.  Applications received after this date will have to wait until school staffing is complete before receiving status of school enrolment.  Wait-listed students who are in catchment area may be moved as soon as space is available.
  4. Confirmation of Cross Boundary Applications:  By the first Friday following school opening, or as soon as possible following this date, pending staffing allocations and school configurations.  Unsuccessful applicants may be held on a waiting list for the subsequent school year.  Parents/guardians applying for Cross Boundary status are advised the decisions related to Cross Boundary Applications may not be decided until the first week of school in the 2017-2018 school year.  Parents/guardians, therefore, must register first at their catchment area school.
  5. Notification of In-Catchment:  Wait-listed in-catchment area students will be notified of their status for the school year as soon as possible or by the first Friday following school opening.

Definitions:

  1. Cross Boundary/Out-of-Catchment Students:   Those students who do not live within the defined attendance areas for the school they wish to attend.
  2. In-Catchment Students:   Those students who live in the attendance areas defined for each school.

Inquiries regarding catchment areas should be directed to the principal of the school.   For your convenience, provided below is the 2016-2017 CMSD82 School Principals Listing with contact numbers.
