  2. Submit the region school application via the online application system.

    • Confirmation email will be sent upon submission.

    • On time/lottery applications = school assignment email sent in late March/early April each year.

    • Late/ongoing applications = school assignment email sent within 24-48 hours.

    • Even if assigned to your second or third choice school a family must register at the assigned school in order to remain in the wait pool for their first choice school.

    • Student assignment will be based upon the following criteria - preference zone, full time site-based employee, sibling placement, socioeconomic diversity, family preference, and capacity.

  • All school assignments have an enrollment deadline.

  • If parents/guardians do not complete the appropriate enrollment process by the stated deadline, they will be required to submit a new region school application.

Wait Pool Management:

  • Families assigned to their second or third choice school will remain in a wait pool for their first choice school.

  • Wait pools are only maintained for first choice schools.

  • Parents/Guardians must enroll their child at the assigned school in order to remain in the wait pool for their first choice school.

  • Once the school year begins, a student must be in attendance at the assigned school in order to remain in the wait pool for their first choice school.

  • On time applicants are placed prior to late applicants, as practicable.

  • Wait pools are maintained for one school year.

  • Families must reapply, beginning in January, to be eligible for a new school assignment the following year.

  • Families that are satisfied with their school assignment do not need to reapply in subsequent years.
