Boundary Exemption Request Process
Boundary Exemption Request Process for 2015-2016
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) reminds families that the boundary exemption request process will take place February 17 to March 13, 2015 for students who want to attend a non-designated school in the 2015-2016 school year. During this time, interested families must fill out and submit the Boundary Exemption Request Form to the requested school.
As of the March 13 deadline, if the boundary exemption request demand at a school does not exceed the number of spaces available in a grade/program, all families who submitted a boundary exemption request form prior to the deadline shall be registered at their requested school. If the demand exceeds the number of available spaces in a grade/program, the school shall participate in a random selection procedure. This procedure provides an equal chance of registration to all students in EIPS.
EIPS encourages families to register their children at their designated school as all schools in the division offer quality educational programming. However, we recognize there are situations where families would like to register their children at a non-designated school. More information about the 2015-2016 boundary exemption request process, key dates, and frequently asked questions are available on the division website at www.eips.ca/boundary-exemptions.
Connect To Respect
Connect to Respect
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) would like to thank all of our parents, students, and families for the role you play in ensuring our schools are safe and respectful working and learning environments. EIPS is proud to have a policy in place, Board Policy 19, Respectful Working and Learning Environments, that prohibits harassment and discrimination of any kind in our division. We all play a part in creating a safe, caring, and violence-free environment that fosters and maintains respectful and responsible behaviours.
One such example of this work in action is the recent Pink Shirt Day that takes place February 25. We know a number of our schools were involved in Pink Shirt Day activities, and we thank you for being involved and taking a stand against bullying.
If you would like more information about the policies in place within EIPS, please review Policy 19, Respectful Working and Learning Environments on our division website at http://www.eips.ca/policies/535.
