Under the British Columbia School Act, an educational program will be provided for every school-aged student who is ordinarily a resident in Burnaby. Additionally, the Board of Education has established policy that allows for students who meet the district’s admission eligibility regulation and who reside outside of Burnaby or who are temporarily residents in Burnaby the opportunity to attend a Burnaby public school. To establish enrolment eligibility, every student seeking admission to a Burnaby school is required to provide documentation establishing residency, guardianship, age and citizenship.
Priority for the upcoming school year will be given to applications received during the month of February. Additional ranking criteria will be used to determine admission if space in a desired school or district program is limited.
