Policies and Procedures


Students who reside within the City of Toronto have the right to attend a school which is designated to serve their residential address. The "Find Your School" section of the website identifies the designated schools for each residential address.

Students also have the opportunity to access schools outside of the school that is designated to serve their home address by applying for Out-of-Area Admissions. Acceptance at these schools is subject to space availability and program suitability. 

The procedures, conditions and timelines relating to Out-of-Area Admissions are described in the Out-of-Area Admissions Policy and the Out-of-Area Admission Operational Procedure . The TDSB will not be responsible for providing transportation for students admitted through Out-of-Area Admissions. Transportation is the responsibility of the applicant.

Each year in November, schools are classified Out-of-Area Admissions based on the space they have available for the upcoming school year. 

Roselands is currently "closed" to out-of-area admissions and cannot admit any students from Out-of-Area.
Only students residing within the school’s attendance area may attend the school.

Student Transportation Policies and Procedures



As you know, this is not a typical start up to the year.  The TDSB's Empty Seat Policy (PR504) has been put on hold for the 2020-2021 school year.  This decision was made to help promote physical distancing on school buses, as well as to help the Toronto Student Transportation Group (TSTG) and bus operators effectively plan bus routes and seating arrangements in light of the new COVID-19 health and safety precautions.
