Provincial Assessment Information

A limited number of  Grade 12 students (only 7) who have not yet completed the Numeracy assessment and are on the path to graduation, have been contacted by counsellors to sit the Numeracy Assessment on Tuesday June 9th, 2020. These 7 students will need to ensure that they are waiting by the front door of the school (doors near the library) for 8:30 on the day. We will be in the computer lab for a 9am start.

Please note if your counselor has not contacted you, you are probably not in grade 12 and/or not graduating this year. You will have a chance to sit it at the next sitting.

Graduation assessments for Grade 10 (and any Grade 11s) will be postponed.
The only graduation assessment required for current Grade 12 students is the Grade 10 numeracy assessment.
