The fees page of the division website explains the fee types, payment options, and criteria for waiving fees.
We are again offering parents the opportunity to purchase school supplies through School Start for the upcoming school year. This online service is not mandatory, but promises to save you both time and money if you choose to use it.
Please download the supply list for your child's grade (see below) and use it when you shop. This list also includes an order form from School Start.
How to Place a School Start Order
You can place your order online at www.schoolstart.ca. Visa, Mastercard, and PayPal are accepted. Use this method in May or June and you will be entered for a chance to win a $1000 cash draw!
You can also fill out the supplied order form, and return to your school with payment. Please make cheques payable to School Start. Order Deadline: June 23, 2017
The supplies will be packaged and delivered directly to the school in August before your child arrives, labeled with his/her name on the School Start Package. For complete information on the ordering process, please view the School Start Parent Letter.
2017-2018 Supply Lists
Please note: ECS supplies are purchased by the school and covered by ECS school fees.
About the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Initiative
PSD schools are committed to enhance student learning through the BYOD Initiative. We hope to encourage an environment where each student has his or her own mobile device to use both at school and at home.
The BYOD Initiative is entirely optional, and students are not required to bring their own devices to use at school.
Parents and students can make their own decision as to which device to purchase for BYOD. We do recommend that all BYOD devices meet the following criteria:
- Internet connectivity (through Wi-Fi or other)
- 6 Hour Battery Life
- Ability to connect to Google Apps For Education
- A Keyboard – integrated, Bluetooth or touch screen
- Word processing capability (more than 1 paragraph)
- Ability to integrate images, video and sound
Parkland School Division has partnered with a selection of businesses to aid with BYOD purchases. Visit the Technology For Learning page to access these offers and learn more about BYOD.
