Notice for parents of ‘In District’ schools:

If you choose to enrol your child with DESK you will need to fill out a transfer form which needs to be approved by District staff.  It also means if you, following your DESK experience, return to another ‘In District” school you will need to fill out another transfer form which also needs to be approved.  If you are, say, moving from Trafalgar Middle School to LVR a transfer form needs to be in place by the end of March or you loose your seat at LVR.
