The process for application for optional attendance for students already in grades 9 – 12 occurs through the home school Principal and the Principal of the requested school. Families inquiring about optional attendance should be directed to the Principal of the designated home secondary school. The process can be initiated through informal means (meeting, email or phone call) and does not require a formal application process. Optional attendance decisions require the approval of both Principals.
Optional attendance does not include transportation. Our Board does have a Courtesy Seat policy whereby those students who are not normally eligible for bussing can apply for school buses with empty seats. If there is a bus route that is close to your house an application for a seat as a Courtesy Seat Rider is made via the main office at the end of September. Forms and information will be available at that time.
Please note: there is a formal optional attendance process for students entering grade 9. The information and timelines are found here.
