Registration Process

High school students wishing to register at Jameswood Alternative School (JAS) must live with in the St. James-Assiniboia School Division. Enrolling at JAS is an option and privilege for a student and subject to a decision by an “admission committee.” The admission committee may include the principal, a teacher, and, when appropriate, senior administration of the SJASD. Admission is based on both JAS' capacity to serve additional students and the determination that the school’s program will be an appropriate option to address the applicant’s academic and social/emotional/behavioral needs. Some students who would otherwise meet admission criteria may not be accepted based on a lack of capacity since staffing and space is limited. If space is available, a decision will be made to determine whether the student meets criteria and is likely to be successful in the program. JAS is not a resource program. JAS may not be able to provide an appropriate education for some students therefore it may be determined that admission is not appropriate on that basis. In cases such as this, applicants will be referred back to their catchment school.

Students can register themselves to attend Jameswood Alternative School. The administrator of JAS will notify the student’s previous school when the registration form has been received. Adobe Acrobat Reader is required.

  • Download the newest application: appform2015_JAS.pdf A current transcript of marks must accompany the registration form. (Adobe Acrobat Reader is required. Print the finished form off and drop it off at our main office.)
  • Print the finished form off and drop it off at our main office.

Upon receipt of an application the applicant will be scheduled to write a new student assessment and participate in an intake interview. Following the assessment successful applicants will be scheduled for an intake meeting to determine the student's education plan. For more information on the registration process please contact the school principal.

Other Information

A student should register to JAS when it has been determined that specific academic or personal circumstances are limiting the student’s chances for success and the home school has run out of viable options to continue to support the student. Students should want to come to Jameswood Alternative School. Students must be self motivated and prepared to make positive changes in their lives to ensure success. Students must live within the St. James-Assiniboia School Division to be accepted at JAS.
