What happens if my child is not offered a placement at Dickson College for 2020?
If Dickson College is unable to offer your child an enrolment place for 2020, we will forward your online application to your Priority Enrolment Area School (PEA) or your second choice of an out of area college. They will email you an offer of enrolment for 2020. All ACT students are guaranteed an offer from their PEA college.
The ACT Education Directorate has a Review and Appeal period. Specific details will be provided on the letter of offer that you receive from an ACT College.
Accepting an enrolment place at Dickson College for 2020: By 4pm Monday 19 August 2019
To finalise the enrolment process parents and carers must come into the college and provide verification of information including proof of the student’s residential address (e.g. original and current lease agreement, utility account etc.) and original birth certificate or identity documents. Your entitlement to priority enrolment in a school is determined from your address on the enrolment form.
It is essential that families complete this process by 4pm on Monday 19 August 2019 so that the Principal can plan for 2020, recruit staff and have the curriculum in place to meet student needs and interests.
