New student registration
Registration for K-12 students new to the district

If your child is new to the school district, use the school locator to find their catchment school. Please note that September 2022 Grade 8 registration is NOT done through the Parent Portal. New students registering in Grade 8 for September 2022 must contact their catchment secondary school to obtain the necessary registration documentation.

Online registration for the upcoming school year opens at noon (12 pm) Monday, March 7, 2022.

The Parent Portal registration process is as follows:

STEP 1 OPEN A PARENT PORTAL ACCOUNT
You must open an SD42 Parent Portal account to access registration. You can complete this step at any time at https://parents.sd42.ca
STEP 2

SELECT THE REGISTRATION PERIOD
Once registration opens, log in to your Parent Portal account, click on the “New Requests” tab and select “Open Enrolment Requests (New – Transfer – Withdrawal).”

*Please note that September 2022 Grade 8 registration is NOT done through the Parent Portal. New students registering in Grade 8 for September 2022 must contact their catchment secondary school to obtain the necessary registration documentation.

STEP 3

PLACEMENT CONFIRMATION
Once your child has been assigned to a school, you will receive an email notification confirming your child’s school placement and instructions on how to upload supporting documents to complete the registration process.

The prioritization of transfer requests is guided by SD42 Procedures 9200.1: Student Placement.

Transfer request (K-12)
SD42 students (K-12) who want to transfer to a different SD42 school or program for the current school year.

Kindergarten to Grade 12 students currently enrolled/registered in an SD42 school or program may request a transfer to a different SD42 school or program. 
 
While every effort is made to accommodate transfer requests, SD42 cannot guarantee your request can be accommodated. The prioritization of transfer requests is guided by SD42 Procedure 9200.1: Student Placement
 
Parents contemplating a transfer request are strongly encouraged to consult with the principal or vice principal at the child’s current school before submitting a formal request. To make a formal transfer request, log in to your Parent Portal account, click on the “Registration” tab, and under “New Request” select the appropriate transfer period.

Please note: Grade 8 transfer requests are not completed on the portal; they are managed directly by the student’s assigned secondary school.

Withdrawal process
Withdrawing a student from School District No. 42

If your child is planning to attend school outside of SD42 for the current school year, please complete our withdrawal form on the Parent Portal. Withdrawing through the Parent Portal helps us ensure student records are transferred to the new school in a timely manner. If you are withdrawing more than one child, complete a separate request for each child.

To complete a withdrawal form, log in to your Parent Portal account, click on the “Registration” tab, and under “New Requests” select the appropriate withdrawal period. Contact your child’s new school/school district to inquire about their registration process. 
 
Please note: A withdrawal cannot be used to request a different school within SD42. If your child is currently attending an SD42 school and you would like to request a transfer to a different school within our district, you will need to complete a transfer request. See the transfer request process tab above for more information.
