    Lottery process at Svend Hansen School

    Our school will continue to have a lottery process in place for new resident students enrolling at our school for the 2022–23 school year. This will not impact current students who attend our school and they can still attend.

    The school will not accept new registrations from families in the attendance area if the student is not a resident of Edmonton Public Schools. A student is considered a resident of Edmonton Public Schools if they have at least one parent who lives in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic.

    Resident students who aren’t selected through the lottery process can attend the overflow designated school, Weinlos School for kindergarten to grade 6, or Kate Chegwin for grade 7-9, a school with space in planned classes or remain at their current school, if applicable.

    Siblings of current students attending our school
    New resident students in the attendance area with a sibling returning to the school next year will get priority, but are not guaranteed to attend. 

    More information about the lottery process

    If you register for Kindergarten or are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.

    Our school has a lottery process for new students enrolling at our school for the 2021-22 school year. This only impacts new students wishing to attend the school and does not impact students currently at our school.

    Each grade will have a limit for the number of classes for all grade levels. If the number of new students enrolling exceeds available space, a lottery process will be used.


    • Yellow bus service to the overflow designated school will be available for eligible students. Bus fees will apply.
    • Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) is the preferred transportation method for junior high students; however, if ETS does not meet Division standards, eligible students attending their designated school may be able to apply for yellow bus service. Bus fees will apply.


    Watch the Growth Control Model video for an overview of the lottery process.  More information about the lottery process is available on the Edmonton Public Schools website. If you have any other questions, please contact our school office at 587-489-4724.
