Grade 9 Info Nights 2016-2017

Grade 9 Info Nights will take place throughout the for grade eight parents and students. Please visit the TDSB's High School Info Nights webpage for a list of dates.

Students and parents are encouraged to attend open houses at all schools your child is interested in attending. It is very important that you attend the open houses at schools that have a specialized program that you are considering applying to. You will find out more about the application process and the deadlines specific to that school and/or program.

Finding Your Home Secondary School: Your child will have a home secondary school assigned to them based on your address. Your young person does not need to apply to a home school since it is based on your residential address. To find your Home school, visit the TDSB's Find Your School webpage.

Optional Attendance 2016-2017

Students in the Toronto District School Board who are interested in attending a school other than their home secondary school, have the option of applying to two additional schools under the Optional Attendance process.  

What is Optional Attendance?

The fact sheet on Optional Attendance (see link below) provides an overview of the Optional Attendance process followed in TDSB. and the Optional Attendance application forms [Optional Attendance forms will be available in January 2017] is used for students applying to schools OTHER than their home secondary school.

The TDSB has an Open/Closed list (scoll down to Secondary) that lists schools that are accepting Optional Attendance forms [Open], schools that are NOT accepting Optional Attendance [Closed] and schools that are accepting some Optional Attendance [Limited].

If your child is planning to apply to a school through the Optional Attendance process, then all Optional Attendance forms must be signed by the school administration prior to parents/guardians delivering them to the desired Open or Limited secondary schools.
