The School Boards or Local Education Authorities (LEA) in your community are responsible for admissions and helping parents to register their children for school. Parents must live in the school boundary area of the school in which they plan to enroll their child. School Boards also provide for special education needs to ensure that all children have access to education.
In most cases parents or legal guardians can register their child for the upcoming school year at anytime during the school year (September-June). Schools open one week prior to the beginning of the school year for registering students who moved to the region during the summer months.
Most schools require a legal birth certificate, proof of residency and a certificate of immunization to register a child for school. Your child must meet immunization requirements for attendance in Ontario schools.
Please call your local school in advance to confirm office hours and document requirements.
