Assistance is offered for course selection, pathway planning (apprenticeship, workplace, college and university) and other issues affecting school performance.

 

Course Selection Timelines:

  • Students will attend Grade Specific Course Information Assemblies this week.
  • Following their assembly, students will receive paperwork useful in selecting courses at home.

  • All students will be seen by their Guidance Counsellor on either Thursday, February 22 or Friday, February 23.
  • Students in Gr. 11 should refer, with their families, to their IPP planning package, completed in December, as a guide to selecting courses appropriate for post-secondary plans.
  • Grade 12 students must ALL enter plans into MyWay.

TIMETABLE CHANGES

Timetable changes can be made by appointment through exams. After exams, students must submit a Request for Timetable Change to guidance and will be handled on a first come, first served basis. Timetable Change Forms must be signed by a parent prior to being submitted.

See above for information about making a timetable change during the first two weeks of September and/or the first week of February. In all other time periods, please book an appointment online.

Senior students who wish to reduce a course from their timetable must make an appointment with their guidance counsellor and follow the appropriate course drop procedure.

Please Note: The timetable change is only official when the student has received a new printed timetable. Until this time, the student must attend the originally scheduled classes. Non-attendance does not constitute dropping a course.
