Ottawa-Carleton District School Board

The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board is the largest school board in Ottawa and offers students and parents a world of choice for education, growth, and achievement. Our 147 schools offer a wide range of programs to promote learning excellence and meet the inpidual needs of students, parents, and the community at large.



Here you will find the information you’ll need to support and nurture your child through their journey of learning. From finding a school, registering your child for school or a specialized program, to finding an extended day program, information on how to get involved in your child’s learning, and your school council, we have pulled it all together for you here.
