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 based on provincial guidelines which state that schools enrol 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 following our divisional process, excerpts of which appear below:
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:
Grade 9 to 12
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 School of Choice no later than May 15. The School of Choice within LRSD – 9-12 application form may be downloaded here. Hardcopies are also available at the school office. A hardcopy of the form may be dropped off or mailed to the school office or a softcopy may be submitted using the tool on the website. Note that forms will be date-stamped upon receipt and processed in accordance with provincial guidelines.
