Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) are taking their registration process to the web.
Returning students enrolling for the upcoming 2018/19 school year must be registered online between Mar. 1-15. Families of EIPS students will receive an email from the district asking for confirmation of their child's information.
The division will also initiate an online pre-enrolment process, meant to simplify requests to attend schools outside the area designations of students. Pre-enrolement will also simplify the storage of students' information. 
"By combining the collection of essential student information with the requests to attend non-designated schools, the division is able to determine in advance how many students will attend each school, plan accordingly, and allocate staff and resources that will provide the best opportunities for growth and success for every student," said Board Chair of EIPS, Trina Boymook.
The pre-enrolment and registration processes will occur through PowerSchool, the district's online student resource. 
Some public schools will be unavailable for students in non-designated areas for the 2018/19 school year, due to high enrolment numbers. These schools will be listed prior to the pre-enrolment process. 
All requests to attend non-designated schools must be completed by Mar. 15, the only exception being for students who have moved to the area after the given deadline.
