Cross Boundary

Parents may apply cross-boundary to another school, but these applications will only be considered after all in-catchment applicants have been placed.

Vancouver schools will begin accepting cross-boundary applications from 

February 2  to 29, 2016. Families who submit a cross-boundary application during this time will be informed of their child’s status by the end of March.

Families interested in a cross-boundary application can pick up a cross boundary application form at the school where applying.

If the requisite space and facilities are determined to be available, cross boundary applications will be accepted in the following priority:

Siblings of continuin non-catchment students who will be concurrently attending regular program at the same school;
Non-catchment students enrolled in on-site childcare programs, or whose childcare needs are provided within the catchment area;
Non-catchment students;;
Non-district students.

Families may only accept one cross boundary offer. Once a family agrees to accept an offer, their application for cross boundary at other schools will be nullified.

Waitlists will be established for unsuccessful cross boundary students to be maintained until September 30.

Families can submit a cross boundary application after March 1; however, schools do not have an obligation to formally inform parents of their status. Late cross-boundary applications submitted after March 1 will be processed on a first-come basis, accounting for space, program and staffing availability.
