There is still some time to request a cross-boundary transfer for many schools in School District 71 for the coming school year.
Comox Valley Schools released information on its website earlier this month that the online cross-boundary transfer period for 2021-2022 had opened as of Jan. 4 and will be run through Jan. 29.
However, the board of education had restricted cross-boundary transfers for some schools at the regular meeting in February 2020 because of over-capacity issues, particularly at four schools: Royston Elementary, Cumberland Community School, Huband Park Elementary and Miracle Beach Elementary.
The move was aimed at allowing the schools to ease enrolment pressure. As a result, the four schools are currently closed to all cross-boundary transfers, including siblings, along with G.P. Vanier Secondary and Mark R. Isfeld Secondary.
