Student Registration

CROSS-BOUNDARY TRANSFER REQUEST

 

Students registered in the Comox Valley school district may request a transfer to a school outside their catchment area for the 2019/20 school year. Registration opens at 7 a.m. on 7 January 2019. Deadline to submit a request is 28 February 2019 at 4 p.m. 

 

With the tremendous growth in the Comox Valley, district schools are at or near capacity, however, there are reasons when a request for transfer can be made including access to a specialized program at another school, to attend school with a sibling, childcare arrangements, or extenuating family circumstances. Cross-boundary priority categories are as follows:

 

  • 1st: Siblings living in Comox Valley registered in a district school.
  • 2nd: Specialized education program offered at another secondary school location.
  • 3rd: Childcare (K-7 only).
  • 4th: Other extenuating circumstances detailed in the request.
 

To register, complete the fillable form below (available when registration opens at 7 a.m., 7 January 2019). Upon completion, click submit. There no longer is any requirement to save, print and mail the form to the School Board Office.

 

2018/19 SCHOOL YEAR REGISTRATION PROCESS

 If you are new to our community and wish to register your child, you may do so by visiting your neighbourhood school. 
 
 At the time of registration, please make sure you bring the following information with you:
  1. YOUR CHILD’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE
  2. PROOF OF RESIDENCE (UTILITY BILL/DRIVER’S LICENSE/PURCHASE OR RENTAL AGREEMENT)
  3. CARE CARD
Due to an increase in enrolment, we cannot guarantee placement in a cross-boundary school but we will always ensure your child cross-boundary in one of our district schools.
