Valleycliffe 2023/24 Kindergarten Registration Lottery

Kindergarten registration for Valleycliffe Elementary School is open between January 17th to 20th. All kindergarten families are asked to fill out the SD48 webform, which includes basic contact information such as name, email address, physical address and student name and grade. Parents will be walked through the process within the webform to either register as a returning or a brand new student to the district.

In previous years the registration process has operated on a first-come, first-serve basis. This year we are piloting a lottery registration for Valleycliffe catchment students in an effort to provide more equitable access for families. This means that all Valleycliffe in-catchment families who register between January 17th and 20th will be considered to have registered, and their registration order will be assigned randomly. In the event that a student is unable to be placed, they will be added to a Valleycliffe school waitlist, and offered a spot at the closest available school. After the registration period ends on January 20th, all families who register after the 20th will be added in priority order according to their registration date, and added to any waitlist that may result.

I also want to assure you that this process will not impact the number of seats available in the Kindergarten. We will follow all the typical registration processes.

Please note: In-catchment students are still prioritized over out-of-catchment students, as per Board Policy 501. Out-of-catchment students can still request a transfer and will be considered if space is available after in-catchment students are assigned.
