Student Registration Process 2020-2021
Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools has developed a standardized student registration process and timeline. All schools in the division are following the same registration process. Student attendance areas are established by the Board to optimize enrollment in each school. Student enrollment impacts manageable class size, school staffing and resources. A school is designated based on where the student’s residence is located.

Each school has distributed registration verification documents for current students to ensure their registration for the 2020-21 school year. Parents were asked to return the forms to the school by April 15, 2020 to ensure verification of registration for next year and to ensure the school has accurate contact and personal information.
Families who want to request a school of choice must be aware that acceptance in a school of choice will be not be guaranteed and will be contingent on whether or not there is space in the program and resources are available. Students who live in a designated attendance area are ensured registration followed by other WRPS resident students with non-resident students having the third right of access.
