Is transportation provided?
The Peel District School Board does not offer transportation from family homes to school for any of its Regional Programs. This also includes Morning Star Middle School’s Arts and Technology Program.
As a result, parents can choose alternative transportation methods to ensure their child or children attend the Arts and Technology program at Morning Star Middle School. One method of transportation has been car-pooling and another method has been the Bus to School Program. If you would like to find out more about the Bus to School Program, please visit our school website.
May I apply to the program if I do not live in Peel Region?
The Arts and Technology Regional Learning Program is open to all eligible individuals. Students who meet the criteria for acceptance to the program and who live in Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga will be offered spots first.
