Transfer Policy Information and FAQ

At a Special Meeting of the Board on 5 January 2010, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board adopted a new cross boundary transfer policy. This policy comes after months of policy review, public consultation and committee deliberation.
The new policy moves away from a first come, first served approach to student transfers and towards a criteria based approval process for elementary and secondary student transfer applications. The applications require the approval of the principal at the receiving school, after consultation with the principal of the sending school. The receiving principal may request evidence and reasoning in support of the transfer application.
