Out-of-Area Request Process for 2020-21 to begin April 14

April 7, 2020

The Out-of-Area process for the 2020-2021 school year will begin on Tuesday, April 14 at 8:00 am and close on Monday, April 27 at 4 pm.

As a result of school buildings being closed due to COVID-19, Out-of-Area requests will only be submitted electronically through the HRCE website.

The online Out-of-Area Request form will be live starting at 8:00 am on Tuesday, April 14.


The electronic submission will be sent automatically to the receiving school and will include a submission date and time stamp. Applications will be numbered according to date and time received.

Requests for students who will have older siblings in the receiving school in September will be given priority for an Out‐of‐Area placement if adequate accommodation is available.

Decisions regarding Out‐of‐Area requests will be communicated by June 23, 2020.

No Internet

For any families with limited or no access to the Internet, our Parent Navigators can assist with submitting an Out-of-Area request on your behalf after 8:00 am on Tuesday, April 14. Please reach out to one of the Parent Navigators at:

More Information

More information on Out-of-Area requests can be found under the Student Registration policy.

Students attending a school that is out-of-area do not qualify for student transportation. It is the parent/guardian's responsibility to transport their child to school if they are attending a different school under the out-of-area process.

Please Note: This Out-of-Area request process applies only to students in Grades Primary to 12. The process is not available to parents/guardians who are considering enrolling their child in the provincial Pre-Primary program for September 2020.
