Durham District School Board
Ignite Learning
The Durham District School Board offers public education in the rural settings of Uxbridge, Brock and Scugog Townships and the urban settings of Ajax, Whitby, Pickering and Oshawa.  With 132 elementary and secondary schools and learning centres, the Board accommodates more than 70,000 regular day students and thousands more who take advantage of a wide variety of continuing education and adult credit courses.

A NEW registration form is only required if your child is NOT CURRENTLY ENROLLED in a DDSB school.
If you are TRANSFERRING from one DDSB school to another, you do not need to fill out a registration form.

Call your current home school to let them know you
are moving, then call the new school to complete the transfer process.

Please note the system will not allow you to register your child in kindergarten for September 2019 prior to January 14, 2019.  Your child must be four years old by December 31, 2019 to attend Junior Kindergarten and, to begin senior kindergarten, a child must be five years old by December 31, 2019.

Student Registration

Step #1:  Locate your child's home school

A website tool called School Locator, has been created to provide you with information about a school and its boundaries. After searching a specific home address or school, boundary maps may be found in the top right hand corner.

Step #3:  The school will contact you to schedule an appointment to complete the registration process where you will be asked to provide supporting documentation

Step #4:  Bring supporting documents to the school
