Welcome to the OCDSB
 Step 1  Find Your School   find your school logo

Use our school locator to find your child's designated school. This is the school your child should attend based on where you live in Ottawa.

If you would like to register your child in an OCDSB school that is not their designated school, you will need to apply for a cross-boundary transfer. Please be advised that not all cross-boundary transfers are approved

At the time of registration, parents will be asked to confirm whether their child will attend school in-person or virtual school for the 2022-23 school year.
