Hi,
We'll be moving the middle of the school year (unfortunately), with a child at 1st grade.
I'd like to know what we need to take with us to ensure our kid doesn't have to repeat 1st grade and could continue to finish the 1st year in Vaughan.


Thank you,

Hello,

Thanks for sharing your question with us. It is great that you are looking into this type of information before your arrival.

According to one of our Education Experts, it is possible to start school in the middle of the school year or semester. Students can start school at any time but starting in the middle of the school year or semester might make it difficult to get credits for the courses he or she is studying. In terms of credits, they generally apply more to higher grades like middle or high school grades.


Since your child is in elementary school, in terms of extra work or homework, it may be something that you may want to discuss with your children's teachers once they are enrolled and begin attending school. It may help to have a discussion with them to find out if and what is needed for your children to catch up.

You can find some additional information regarding enrolling your kid in school in the Settlement.Org article, How do I enrol my child in school?


We hope this information is helpful. Please follow up with us if you have any additional questions.


Sincerely,


Your Settlement.Org Team
