​A valid Canadian birth certificate or Canadian passport of the child, a copy of one parent/guardian BC driver’s license and one parent/guardian BC CARE card for proof of residency must be provided by 4:00 p.m. on March 13th.  Other legal documentation such as landed immigrant/permanent resident card, certificate of citizenship or documents issued by Immigration Canada must be processed through our International Education office prior to registering at a school.  Immunization records for the child must also be provided at the time of registration.   
Deferred Enrollment
The School Act allows a parent to defer the enrollment of a Kindergarten child for not more than one year.  Parents are encouraged to discuss deferment with the school principal before a decision is made.
Acceptance of Registration
As per Board Policy 405R – Student Placement Regulations priorities shall be given to students on the following basis: 


  • catchment area students who, in the previous year, attended the school; 

  • catchment area students who, in the previous year, were ‘placed’ by the district in a different school;
  • siblings of catchment area students;
  • new catchment area students;
  • siblings of non-catchment area students currently enrolled in the school;
  • non-catchment area students who request to attend the school which is other than their catchment area school;
  • non-district area students;
  • international students.

    As per SD#23 Board Policy 405R – Student Placement (Regulations) , these priorities remain in effect until the close of registration on August 30, 2012.  After that date, schools may accept ‘out-of-catchment’ students, space permitting.
