Frequently Asked Questions about High School Registration:

 

Q:           My child has applied to one of the regional programs in YRDSB (IB, ARTS, Bill Crothers). Do we still have to a complete a Maple High School Registration Form?

 ​

A:           If you have already received confirmation of acceptance into a regional program, please inform the Grade 8 teacher, so they can remove the child’s name from the list of outstanding Registration Forms.  If you are waiting to receive an acceptance into a regional program, please complete the Maple High School Registration Form, and attach a note to the front of the form indicating “Has applied to IB/ARTS/BCSS-waiting for notification”.  This will ensure that, if the application to the regional program is not successful, your child will have a space at Maple High School.

 

Q:           My child will not attend Maple High School, but will attend a private school/a Catholic school/a school in another board due to a move of residence. Do we still have to a complete a Maple High School Registration Form?

 

A:           If you are moving out of the Maple High School boundary area, or to another board of education, or if you have registered your child at one of the private or Catholic schools in the area, please inform the Grade 8 teacher, so they can remove the child’s name from the list of outstanding Registration Forms.  If you are moving, we recommend that you contact the school in the new location as soon as possible to determine the requirements for registration at that school.

 

Q:           I wish to transfer my child to another YRDSB school outside of the boundary area I live in. How do I do this?

 

A:           Complete the Maple High School Registration Form, and the “Application for Student Transfer From One York Region School To Another” Form, which is available from the Main Office of the elementary school your child currently attends.  These two forms must be received by Maple High School no later than Friday, January 31, 2020, so that the application can be included in the board-wide transfer process that occurs during the week of February 3, 2020.​
