In the past, Mountview Alternative school has had a site-based application process with an internal lottery process. Now the applications will be done centrally through random selection. As part of the TDSB’s commitment to ensure equitable access, admissions, and opportunities for all students and to support implementation of the Board decision regarding elementary alternative schools (May 26, 2021) and the revised Alternative Schools Policy (P062), the TDSB has developed a new centralized application process and online application form for elementary alternative schools.
The centralized application process and online application form will be in place for students and families to request admission for September 2023. Staff and families will be able to access information related to elementary alternative schools on the TDSB website and the application period will open starting January 16, 2023.
Families may select up to two (2) schools and must rank their choices. Due to the volume of anticipated applications, if the student is selected for their first choice, they will not be considered for their second choice. If a student is selected for their second choice and decline, they will not be considered for their first choice.
