26-Jun-17That the Board of Education of School District No.61 (Greater Victoria) accept the recommendations of the Student Registration and Transfer Ad Hoc Committee as follows:

1) That the Board of Education approve the following student enrolment priorities and corresponding considerations to take effect for student enrolment during the 2018-2019 school year:

1. re-enrolling students
2. a catchment area sibling
3. a new catchment area child
4. a non-catchment sibling
5. a non-catchment area child
6. a non-school district child

2) That the Board of Education direct the Superintendent to revise the appropriate policies and regulations to reflect changes to the student enrolment priorities and process, including:

English and French program families who could not access their catchment school will have the first right of refusal at their catchment school when, or if, a seat becomes available. Should the family choose to stay in their present non-catchment school, or a seat does not become available at their catchment school, they will be treated as a catchment student at their non-catchment school and pathway.

A student leaving a French Immersion program at a school that is not their English catchment school will have to apply for a transfer to attend the English program. This practice will also apply to any student attending a program of choice at a non-catchment school (e.g. sports academy or leadership program).

The enrolment priorities apply to all students in transition from elementary to middle school, and from middle school to high school. In the event space is limited and a school cannot accept all non-catchment student requests, priority will be given to those non-catchment students currently in the determined pathway of schools over other non-catchment, non-pathway students.

In recognition of a growing student population and to ensure an equitable placement of international students at schools across the District, the number of international student registrations will be capped at 1,050 FTE for 2017-2018 and will be reviewed annually by the Superintendent and Director of International Student Programs, based on annual enrolment projections.
