A plan to address a potential shortage of public school spots is being developed, ACT Education deputy director-general Deb Efthymiades says.
But she has not named which Canberra schools are now near capacity.
The deputy director-general spoke to the ABC on Tuesday morning, following the opening of ACT public school enrolments for preschool to year 12 for 2022.
When asked where demand was greatest, Ms Efthymiades did not specify which public schools were close to full.
"There's a few of them, we're working with our schools in the inner north in particular," Ms Efthymiades said.
"But all of that is well in hand, those schools can still guarantee a spot for every kid that's in their priority catchment area."
Education Directorate figures previously provided to The Canberra Times show an extra 579 primary students are expected to enrol across all inner-north public schools by 2030.
Majura Primary School, Lyneham Primary School and North Ainslie Primary School have all been identified as schools facing significant increases in enrolments.
Ms Efthymiades said several schools across Canberra were in high demand, which would determine local families' eligibility for enrolling.
She said everyone was guaranteed a space in their local school.
Ms Efthymiades didn't rule out bringing back decommissioned schools to meet the growing demand for public schooling in Canberra, but said the preference was to expand the capacity of schools currently operating.
"I wouldn't say that anything is off the books," Ms Efthymiades said.
