High School in the Peel District School Board (times have changed!) OFFICAL DISCLAIMER! IM HUMAN. I MAKE MISTAKES. THIS IS A PDSB PRESENTATION ... I DONT HAVE INFO ON PRIVATE/CATHOLIC SCHOOLS. FOR THE MOST ACCURATE AND CURRENT INFORMATION, CALL YOUR HIGH SCHOOL DIRECTLY! (ALL I KNOW IS WHAT THEYVE TOLD ME!)

THAT BEING SAID, IM PRETTY GOOD AT THIS ... SO LEAVING NOW WOULD BE VERY UNCOOL. BASIC OVERALL INFORMATION STUDENTS NEED 30 CREDITS TO

GRADUATE TO GET A CREDIT, YOU MUST PASS A COURSE (50%) STUDENTS TAKE 8 COURSES IN GRADE 9 FOUR IN FIRST SEMESTER (SEPT.- JAN.) AND FOUR IN SECOND SEMESTER (FEB. JUNE) SIX OF THESE COURSES ARE COMPULSORY: ENGLISH, MATH, SCIENCE, GEO, FRENCH, PHYS ED STUDENTS CHOOSE TWO OPTIONAL COURSES THE CHOICES VARY SLIGHTLY (arts, business, tech) COURSES ARE SELECTED NOVEMBER 14-30! THE MYTHS!

You NEED academic Math to get into University. Canadian universities look at and judge marks from different high schools differently. If a child takes an Applied course in Grade 9, they are closing doors to the future. My child can leave French Immersion and go into Extended French at any time. Certain schools are bad they have bad

people ... and drugs! TIMELINES By Nov. 7: students determine if they are registering at Clarkson for FI, or at their English home high school November 14-30 : course selection done at home through My Blueprint (info will come

home) Nov. 9-25: applications for Regional Programs Feb. 6: acceptances to Regional Programs are sent out, final decisions must be made by Feb. 9 Spring 2017: final chance to adjust level of programming for Core Subjects DECISION #1 DO I APPLY TO REGIONAL PROGRAM? 1. Go to the Open House. 2. Go to their website. 3. Apply online (Nov. 9-25). If you are even a teeny, tiny bit interested, apply.

4. At the same time, recognize the need to register for a high school that is guaranteed to take you! PROS: specialization in an area that I love! CONS: no bussing, might be too specialized*** A Note About Bussing There is very little bussing provided to high school students. You only qualify if you live over 3.8 km from the school that you are geographically entitled to go to (i.e. your home English high school, Special Education programming). This means the only bussing for Immersion

students is for students for whom Clarkson is also their home English option AND they live over 3.8km away. The same would be true for a Regional program. Go to the STOPR section of the PDSB website to check! REGIONAL PROGRAMS Applewood Heights -- Sports (also F.I.) Cawthra Park RAP (music, drama, dance,

art) Erindale/Glenforest International Baccalaureate Gordon Graydon International Business & Tech, Graphic Design Management (Flexography) John Fraser Advanced Placement Port Credit SciTech, Strings TL Kennedy International & Executive Leadership OTHER PROGRAMS OFTEN CONFUSED WITH REGIONAL PROGRAMS French Immersion (Clarkson) no need to apply

Extended French (Lorne Park) -- cannot register in this program (*loophole*) SHSM (Specialist High Skills Major) a grade 11-12 program offered at various high schools (i.e. Sports @ Lorne Park, Health & Wellness @ The Woodlands...), you do NOT register for this program in gr. 9, you cannot get special permission to go to a school in gr.9 for this program (Explore High Skills is a grade 9-10 program but only affects Cawthra students now) Gifted/Enhanced classes this is a Special Education program you cannot apply for it, best to confirm options now DECISION #2 (for FI students)

AM I CONTINUING IN FRENCH IMMERSION AT CLARKSON? Yes? Great! No need to do anything. No? 1. Need to double-check home school for English. (www.peelschools.org, Schools, Find Your School) 2. Need to give final decision to Mrs. Shaver by Nov. 7. HOORAY ... YOURE READY TO REGISTER! In November, you must register at Clarkson for FI or your local high school for English

programming. WHAT IF I DONT LIKE MY CHOICES? Flexible Boundaries are very rarely allowed. - forms www.peelschools.org, type flexible boundaries in the Search box, follow instructions - next Spring or Fall (May 15-Sept. 30) - still need to register at a guaranteed school come November! DECISION #3 and 4 WHAT COURSES SHOULD I TAKE AND AT WHAT LEVEL?

(Immersion: French, Science, Geography are French in Gr. 9) Math, English, Science, Geography and French can be taken at the Academic or Applied level Optional courses (2): check your high school but it is recommended that you take one Arts and one Business or Technology to satisfy graduation requirements course descriptions are found on MyBlueprint Academic or Applied in Grade 9? Academic courses develop students' knowledge and skills through the study of theory and abstract

problems. These courses focus on the essential concepts of a subject and explore related concepts as well. Applied courses focus on the essential concepts of a subject, and develop students' knowledge and skills through practical applications and concrete examples. Familiar situations are used to illustrate ideas, and students are given more opportunities to experience hands-on applications of the concepts and theories they study. If you take an Applied course in grade 9, you can still take an Academic course in grade 10 if you were successful. (*Math) General Rule of Thumb: As and Bs, Ds and Rs, Cs

OTHER TYPES OF COURSES Open courses are courses that have no levelling optional courses like grade 9 Visual Art or Business are Open Phys Ed is an Open course, but is separated into male/female for grade 9 (please talk to me if this doesnt work for you or your child!) Locally developed courses are courses that focus on essential skills and require special permission to register a member of our Special Education department would be in touch with parents if that was appropriate for a student

Moving Forward... In grade 9 and 10, courses are either Academic or Applied (or Open). In grade 10, all students have to take a Career Studies course. Part of this course talks about your future pathway workplace, college, university. This will allow students to take courses in grade 11/12 that allow them to continue on that path: University/College/Workplace. SPECIAL EDUCATION in HIGH SCHOOL Gifted programming (for students who

qualify for specialized placement) is available at Lorne Park and The Woodlands your address determines where you can go GLE and GLS courses for students needing extra support your ISSP teacher will recommend this for you if it is applicable excellent course that focuses on organization, study skills and transitioning to high school offered in Term 1 or 2 in place of French* or an optional course MyBlueprint aka its so much easier when it works! All course selection for Peel high schools is done

through this online system all grade 8 students are registered, you can access it at home and parents can create accounts too! Students will be given instructions to register for courses at home inNovember After a student registers, they will have a printed copy for parents to sign and return to Mrs. Shaver If a student is LEAVING THE FI PROGRAM, Mrs.

Shaver needs to know earlier (Nov. 7!) so information can be switched in the SIS program If there are problems (and there will be!), Mrs. Shaver will have lunch hours available to help students register! QUESTIONS? 1. General questions that everyone might benefit from hearing 2. Have a specific question? Stick around and ask OR email me: [email protected] 3. No questions? Have a lovely night!
