Student Registration Process 2020-2021
Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools has been working on a standardized student registration process and timeline. All schools in the division will be following the same registration process. Student attendance areas are established by the Board to optimize enrollment in each school. Student enrollment impacts manageable class size, school staffing and resources. A school is designated based on where the student’s residence is located.
Families will have an opportunity to request a school of choice but acceptance in a school of choice will not be guaranteed and will be contingent on whether or not there is space in the program and resources are available. Students who live in a designated attendance area are ensured registration followed by other WRPS resident students with non-resident students having the third right of access.
School of choice and non-resident student applications can be submitted commencing March 15, 2020 however decisions about school of choice and non-resident applications will be made after April 15. Families will be informed of the decision once it is made.
