Lottery Results for Kindergarten 2016-2017 Registrations


In accordance with the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) accommodation decisions for Chaparral School, a lottery was held on February 10, 2016, in order to establish enrolment for the 2016-2017 school year kindergarten.  As per the established enrolment priorities, 59 of the allotted 65 spaces have been assigned to children who currently have a sibling in the school, and students residing in our walk zone. The balance of spaces was assigned by lottery.


The lottery criteria for order of acceptance are as follows:

Priority 1

Students residing within the walk zone who have a sibling attending the school at the time of registration (see individual school profile pages for maps)

Priority 2

Students living outside the walk zone who have a sibling in the school/program OR students living within the walk zone who do not have a sibling in the school/program

Priority 3

All other students living in the designated community.


This is to inform you that all registrations received for children who currently have a sibling in the school and/or students residing in our walk zone (all children in Priority 1 and Priority 2 categories) have been ACCEPTED into Chaparral School for the 2016-17.  The families with children in the Priority 3 category were notified of the lottery results via telephone on February 16,  2016.


If you have any further questions regarding the results of the lottery, please contact the school at 403-777-6424.
