As the administration team begins the process of sorting out course selection forms for the 2020-2021 school year begins, graduation requirements are being reviewed for students.
All students must graduate with 80 credits among certain assessments such as the literacy and numeracy exam. If missing one or more of the assessments, retests will be held on April 15th, 2020 for the Numeracy assessment for all grades and the Literacy assessment will be held on April 16th, 2020, also for all grades.
Students had the chance to register in the office for exam retakes this week with today being the last day for registration. This is required for any students who want to be eligible to write the assessment.
Retests are open for students who missed or did not pass the assessment, as well as for students who believe they can achieve a higher mark. These assessments are compulsory for graduation and vital in order to graduate. Students who miss the retakes must go to their counsellor and discuss a time in which they can take the required assessments. Exam times will be released closer to the retest dates.
Similar to the first set of assessments, the exam results do not affect a student’s grades but does get recorded on transcripts.
Kevin Henry and the rest of the counsellors also encourage students to hand in course selection forms if not already. Handing in the form allows the counsellors to sort courses out and makes it easier for them to give the students the courses they desire.
