McKernan School - Registration Information

 

For Elementary, McKernan has a very small attendance area.   It can be found HERE.  Students living in this area will be accommodated into the school and have first choice for selecting our French Immersion program.  Kindergarten and Grade 1 are both entry points into the program.  The only restriction for Grade 1 will be space.  Both Kindergarten and Grade 1 have enrollment caps of 24 students.

 

Priority for entrance into French Immersion Kindergarten are as follow;

  1. Students/families living within our attendance area.

  2. Students who have an older sibling who will remain at McKernan the following school year.

  3. All other students who want the program.

 

Historically we have not filled our French Immersion Kindergarten from within our attendance area and have been able to accommodate students with siblings in the school.  Over the past few years, we have had to go to a random selection draw from the students not in the area or with sibling to fill the remaining spaces in our class.

 

Depending on space, there is always the potential of having to do a random selection draw from those with siblings.

 

Priority for entrance into French Immersion Grade 1 are as follow;

  1. Students returning to McKernan who were in Kindergarten the previous year.

  2. Students living within our attendance area.

  3. Students who have an older sibling who will remain at Mckernan the following school year.

  4. All other students who want the program.

 

In the past few years, we have only had a couple of open spaces and have had to go to random selection for these open spaces.  The spaces available and the determination of where we will need to run a random selection draw will be determined by our Spring Pre-Enrollment process, which end on April 18th at 4:00 pm.

 

For Junior High, McKernan has a larger attendance area.  It can be found HERE.  ALl of our Junior High Programs  have restrictions on them. The following programs have optimal enrolment limit on them and we are restricted to only one class in each program; English, Pre-Ap, French Immersion and Late French Immersion.  For our Spanish Bilingual Program, we will be following the Edmonton Public Schools, continuity of programming rules and will only be taking students from the two Edmonton Public Elementary Schools that offer Spanish Bilingual.

 

Priority for enrollment in our English, Pre-AP, French and Late French programs is as follows.

 

  1. Students already in the school who are moving from Grade 6 into Grade 7.

  2. Students who are not currently in the school, but live within our Junior High Attendance area.

  3. Students who have an older sibling who will remain at Mckernan the following school year.

  4. All other students who want one of our programs.

 

Over the past few years, we have had to go to a random selection draw for our Late French class.  Depending on demand, we may have to also use this process to fill spaces within any of our other programs.


For our Pre-AP Program, students will need to fill in an application.
