What are the entrance criteria?
Your child must be diagnosed with severe disabilities in order to attend Parkland School. Your child must have proper documentation that proves their diagnosis from a doctor or psychiatrist.
WHY DO I NEED TO PROVIDE A BIRTH CERTIFICATE FOR MY CHILD?
A birth certificate is required for enrollment within any school in the province.
IS TRANSPORTATION INCLUDED?
Not always. If you are within the city, we would either add the student to our own bus fleet, or arrange for Action Bus transportation if they are in a wheelchair. Alternatively, you as the parent or guardian, can also agree to serve as the child's daily transportation. School begins at 8:45 am and pick up is at 2:55 pm daily. We would do our best to see if transportation can be arranged, but it is not always the case.
IS THERE A WAITLIST FOR YOUR SCHOOL?
Yes. We only have a certain capacity. Spots open up as students graduate each year, or advance from one classroom to another. In any given year, we typically have between 1-5 graduates.
CAN MY CHILD START HALFWAY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR?
In some cases, this is accepted, based on meeting all of the entrance requirements. This also depends on waitlist status.
