Making a Transfer Request — What you need to know

All students attend a designated school based on geographic and programming considerations. Requests for transfers to attend a school other than your child's designated school must be made during the application period. The 2018-2019 student transfer application period is Monday, February 5 to Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Here are the steps you need to take:

 Step 1  Register at your designated school and obtain a student identification number (OEN) if available. 

 Step 2 
 Obtain the required transfer form from any OCDSB school.

 Step 3 Complete the Transfer Request Form (OCDSB 118E – Elementary or OCDSB 118S – Secondary) available at the school.

 Step 4  Submit the transfer form and all required documentation to the school you want to attend.

 Step 5  Should additional information be required, the school will contact you.

 Step 6  All applicants will receive a letter advising whether the transfer request was approved or denied. 

 Step 7 
 If denied and you wish to appeal, please contact the principal of the receiving school, in writing. In consultation with the Superintendent of Instruction, principals will have the discretion to approve a student transfer in light of very exceptional personal circumstances.

 Step 8  If the initial appeal is denied, a final appeal may be made to a panel of trustees.

For more information please read the Student Transfer Parent Guide or visit the school transfer section of our website.
