The transfer form is not used to request specialized system classes. Please talk to your principal for these types of requests.
Proof of Address
For address change requests, proof is required. Accepted proof includes:
- GST rebate
- home or renter insurance
- income tax statement
- mortgage statement
- property tax assessment

- Independent students may use their driver’s license as proof of address
The document must include the new current address and the name of the parent, legal guardian or independent student. Schools are not able to accommodate the change of address without the proof of address.

We need to make sure there are enough spaces for students who live in the communities designated to our schools for both course availability and school capacity, before we can accept transfers.
