District News

Student enrolment priorities determine the order in which students will get into a school when space is limited. The Greater Victoria School District is seeking public input on what is important to parents and what is most important when prioritizing how students are accepted when space is limited.

The Greater Victoria School District is seeking input from parents as part of a review of the current priorities and the overall registration and transfer process. The results of the review process will help ensure a transparent and fair process for student registration at all grade levels including French Immersion and requests to transfer to a non-catchment school. This does not apply to Programs of Choice in secondary school (e.g. Flex, Challenge, and sports academies) Registration for these programs is done through a merit-based application process.

In an effort to reach as many parents across the District as possible, an online survey is available to collect input. The survey is also available in print and is being translated in five languages to reach parents whose first language is not English. The survey will close Monday, April 10, 2017 at 4 pm.
