Registration Process During a Health Emergency

To register new students during the COVID-19 pandemic follow the steps outlined in Registration on the Calgary Board of Education website. Look on the Kindergarten to Grade 9 or High School Registration pages.

General Registration Information

If you have questions for our school, contact us for information.

It is not possible to register at the school on holidays and during the summer. During the summer break you can find more information and dates on our Back to School page.

Non-Canadian students have a different registration process: please see our Non-Canadian Students page for details.​

​​​​​​​What School is Next and Transferring Between CBE Schools

Every CBE student has a designated school based on their home address. When you transition from elementary to middle school, or from middle school to high school, you will be automatically registered at your designated school according to your home address. To find your designated school, use our Find a School tool. 

​If you are interested in attending a school other than your designated school, visit the Transferring Between CBE Schools webpage for transfer information. Please note that some schools are quite full and not able to accept all transfer requests. ​

How to Register

Kindergarten Registration 2021/22

Our school continues to be full and will need to follow the lottery and waitlist process this year. However, due to COVID restrictions Kindergarten registration will look different this year. 

Parents will be required to print and complete the attached registration form Kindergarten Registration Form (Canadian Citizen)

In addition to the registration form parents will be required to attach the following documents:

  • Photocopy of your child’s birth certificate (preferred) or passport
  • Photocopy of Canadian Citizenship (if applicable)
  • Photocopy of one parent or guardian driver's license (proof of address)
  • Photocopy of a utility bill e.g. Enmax or Direct Energy (proof of address)
  • Photocopies of assessments or IPP’s (if applicable) 

These items must be stapled together in a package and/or in an envelope and dropped off to Ken Taylor School starting January 11 at 8:30 am. Once the packages have been quarantined for 72 hours (about 3 days) they will be reviewed by our staff and entered in the lottery. If your package is incomplete or we require additional information you will be contacted at this time.

Registration will close on February 9, 2021 at 12:00 pm and the lottery will take place at noon on February 10, 2021.  You will be contacted via email within 10 business days with lottery results. 

If your child is not a Canadian citizen you must contact the CBE Welcome Centre to register your child Welcome Center Information .  Once you have received your documentation from the Welcome Center you will be required to complete the above steps.

Please note our school in in a lottery system and will follow the following priorities. Please see the attached map to determine if you are in the walk zone.   Walk Zone Kenneth D. Taylor
