The Designated Schools Advantage
EIPS is pleased to provide quality educational programming in all schools throughout the division and ensures each child has a designated school based on his/her address of residence. There are many benefits to using a designated schools model. The school system is better able to manage resources, including staffing, programs, technology, and transportation for the utmost benefit of all students.There is a better sense of community when the students who attend a school also live near one another.Transitions from elementary to junior high and then to senior high are more seamless for parents, children, and school staff.
Although we encourage students to attend their designated school whenever possible, we also understand families may have specific educational programming needs or requirements that prompt them to consider a different school.
To find your Designated school, use the Versatrans e-Link toll on EIPS' website at http://www.eips.ca/schools/find-my-designated-school
EIPS encourages parents/guardians to register their children at their designated school, and students have guaranteed access to their designated school. However, we understand some situations exist whereby parents/guardians may wish to register their children at a non-designated school. Through the pre-enrolment process, EIPS students can pursue attending a non-designated school as long as there is space and the student submits a request to attend a non-designated school prior to the deadline.
The online pre-enrolment process for the 2018-19 school year takes from March 1 to 15, 2018. This is the only time of year students from Grades 1 to 12 wanting to attend a non-designated school in the upcoming school year can apply to do so.
