Black Gold School Division
Every child enrolled in Black Gold School Division has a designated school. The best way to find your child’s designated school is to use our Bus Planner portal. Please enter your home address to determine local school and bus transportation eligibility.
All new families are asked to register their child online via PowerSchool Enrollment. A paper copy of the registration form is not available.
PowerSchool Enrollment is our online enrolment system. PowerSchool Enrollment replaces annual paper registration packets, saving valuable time. The new system is a secure process that allows the Division to verify all student information for every child prior to the start of the new school year.

Applying to a School That is Not Your Designated Location?
Should a family wish to enrol their child in a school other than the designated school, the enrolment request will be considered a request to attend a school of choice. Acceptance to a school of choice will be based upon existing BGSD policy and procedures including availability or non-availability of space and resources.
Students who attended a Black Gold School Division in 2022-2023 and are returning to a Black Gold School in 2023-2024 should not complete a new student registration form. Instead, they could complete an online Student Enrolment Verification Form, through their PowerSchool Parent Portal.
The form will be available prior to September 1, 2023.
