The district supports an orientation program for all students as they transition from an elementary school into a secondary school within the RCDSB. We also support students moving from elementary school junior level programs to schools within the RCDSB that offer intermediate level courses. For more information on orientation, read our Administrative Procedure 301 - Orientation of Students.

Admission of Students
