BUSD Elementary school application advice (starting Kindergarten this Fall)
Hi all, I am hoping to get advice on applying to a BUSD elementary school that is not within our zone. We live in the Central zone, and have five schools that are available to us, however some are quite far out to where we live (I don’t drive, and I will be doing the school run). On my tours, I have already talked to PTA about the bus service, however, we wont know how long the bus ride will take until we sign up (one parents who lives in the flats goes to Cragmont and the bus takes 1h 20mins).
I have two questions :
1/ Have any parents chosen a school out of their zone and and had offered? Or had a second choice school out of zone offered?
2/ Are there any tips to increase chances in getting your school choice? We are attending tours and also going to information nights, if offered by the school.
Any tips /advice is appreciated! Thank you.
