Please visit your catchment school to register a child into the school district after September 15th.
 
Note: This registration process is for the standard neighbourhood school program. Registration for programs of choice (e.g. French Immersion, Montessori) is not open at this time.
 
Please ensure you have the following information to complete the registration. Application forms will not successfully submit without all required information.

  2. PROOF OF RESIDENCE (UTILITY BILL/DRIVER’S LICENSE/PURCHASE OR RENTAL AGREEMENT)
  3. B.C. CARE CARD
To find out your neighbourhood school, visit the School Locator resource. 

Comox Valley Schools (SD71) will be enrolling kindergarten students (Neighbourhood, French Immersion, Montessori, Indigenous, Fine Arts, and eClasses) for the 2019/20 school year beginning February 12th. Check below for your respective school and program to find out which days registration takes place.

 

To be eligible for enrolment in September 2019, a student must turn five (5) years of age by December 31, 2019. Each child's birth certificate and proof of address must be presented at time of registration. CareCards will not be accepted as proof of birth but need to be presented at the time of registration. A Passport or Landed Immigrant authorization are suitable forms of documentation in lieu of birth certificates.

 

All kindergarten classes are full-day programs. Parents are asked to register their children at their current neighbourhood school on February 19, 20 and 21 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.  While most, if not all, students living in a school’s local catchment will be accommodated at that school, they cannot be guaranteed placement in the catchment area school and may be required to go to the nearest school having space available.  To determine your neighbourhood catchment school go to School Locator.
