  • Schools of Choice

    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:

    1. Students designated to attend that school
    2. Students residing in the Louis Riel School Division
    3. Other Manitoba students

    Acceptance is also based on school population, available space and resources.

    School of choice requests are accepted for the next school year between February 1 and May 15.

    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 catchment school within the same school division, please fill out, sign and submit a School of Choice Within-Division application form to the designated catchment school no later than May 15.  The application form is available at the school division/school administration office.
