Elementary Out of District Applications
According to the GECDSB Out of District Elementary Application Procedure, elementary out of district applications must be received by the Principal of the receiving school by May 1st for September of the same year.  This deadline is strictly enforced. 

If you are considering an application for your child(ren) to attend a school as an out of district student for the upcoming school year, please ensure that your application is completed and submitted to the principal by May 1st

A sibling of a student who has already been approved to attend an out of district school must apply in the usual manner with no guarantee of acceptance.

Please understand that applying for out of district at any time may be denied based on open vs. closed boundary schools, potential Program and Accommodation Reviews, boundary studies, or capacity challenges, etc.  Completion of the form does not guarantee placement at a requested out of district school.  The Superintendent responsible for Accommodations makes the final decision and applicants will be officially advised, by letter, whether or not the application is approved.

The Out of District Elementary Application form and the Acceptable Proof of Residence document are located in the margin to the left.
