Guardianship, Custody or Access Rights
Guardians of the student must be identified to ensure each party’s rights are respected. If an order exists affecting guardianship rights or custody or access rights, a copy of the order will be required to be placed in the student record. In rare instances a child may be designated as “protected” if a court issues a restraining order under the Child, Youth and Family Enhancement Act, the Family Law Act, the Young Offenders Act or similar legislation.
Parent or Guardian Information:
The Education Act defines a parent as a legal guardian of the child. Legal Guardianship is legally defined in section 20 of the Family Law Act, Part 1 Division 5 of the Child, Youth and Family Enhancement Act or Section 23 of the Family Law Act. Legal Guardianship may also be established by a temporary or permanent guardianship order under the Child Welfare Act, or by way of a court order or agreement in accordance with the Family Law Act. Please identify the legal guardians of the child being enrolled. If there are questions as to whether an individual is a parent or guardian pursuant to the legal definitions, please contact the school principal for assistance.
With respect to each parent/guardian, please indicate whether the parent/guardian is Catholic. Residency of a student in the District is, in certain circumstances, based upon the faith of the parent/guardian.
