Determination of Residence/Catchment

A Student's residence/catchment is determined as follows:

  • Residence is determined by a person's physical presence as a resident within a designated geographic boundary of a school catchment with the intent to remain.
  • The residence of a student for school purposes depends upon a factual determination of the care, custody and control of the student.
  • All other requests for transfers as well as all Placement Exception Requests will be reviewed by the Office of Registration and Communication Services following consultation with the assigned SL, SSIO and/or DoDES. These reviews are held at the end of the annual registration period and under emergency circumstances, when it is in the best interest of the child i.e. Medical, SEN, and/or Safety.

  • Years 1-6 $250 per term x3
