Boundary Exemption Request Process: Now open
Posted on March 1st, 2017
The Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) boundary exemption request process for the 2017–2018 school year is now open.
EIPS students—in kindergarten to Grade 12—wanting to attend a non-designated school in the upcoming school year can now apply to do so. All interested families must fill out a Boundary Exemption Request Form and submit it directly to their requested school. The application deadline is April 7, 2017. Boundary exemption requests received after April 7, 2017 will be declined. There is no late or secondary process.
For the 2017–2018 school year, boundary exemption requests are not being accepted at the following schools: Fort Saskatchewan Elementary, James Mowat Elementary, SouthPointe School and Win Ferguson Elementary. As many of you are aware, the Division has established new elementary attendance boundaries for the City of Fort Saskatchewan, which take effect when SouthPointe School opens at the start of the 2017–2018 school year.
The Boundary Exemption Request Form and additional information about the boundary exemption request process, schools with closed boundaries and frequently asked questions can be found by visiting www.eips.ca/schools/boundaries/boundary-exemption-request-process.
Final decisions will be made by April 12, 2017.
