The Schools of Choice initiative facilitates parental/student choice, within limits, in selecting the public school best suited to the student’s learning requirements.
These requests for transfers are considered at the School of Choice based on provincial guidelines, which state that schools enroll students in the following order of priority:
- Students designated to attend that school
- Students residing in the Louis Riel School Division
- Other Manitoba students
Acceptance is also based on school population, available space and resources.
School of choice requests are accepted between February 1 and May 15
for the next school year.
Parents must apply to potential receiving schools by completing, signing and submitting one of the following application forms for admission to a School of Choice:
If a student wishes to attend a school other than the designated school within the same school division/district, please fill out, sign and submit three copies of a School of Choice Within-Division/District application form to the potential “receiving” school no later than May 15.
Out of Division
If a student wishes to attend a school in a school division/district other than the home school division, please fill out, sign and submit four copies of a School of Choice Out-of Division/District application form to the potential “receiving” school no later than May 15.
Forms filled out online will automatically print the required number of copies. Please sign all copies. The application form is also available at the receiving school division/school administration office.
