SD59 Dual Credit student wins gold at Provincial Skills Competition
The Board of Education would like to congratulate Karissa Porteous on her recent success at the Provincial Skills Competition. Karissa is a dual credit student currently enrolled in the Aircraft Maintenance Program at Northern Lights College.
What are "Dual Credit" courses and programs? A high school student may participate in the dual credit program by enrolling in an approved post secondary program at Northern Lights College. The student can earn both high school credits and post secondary credits upon successful completion of the program. Many students walk away with a program certification upon graduation.
The Board of Education of School District No.59 approved a three year school calendar at the March board meeting. Having a three year calendar allows parents, staff, and organizations to plan future events around designated breaks and non-instructional days. However, the board does have the authority to revise and submit a new calendar to the Ministry if completed by March 31st prior to the commencement of each new school year. The Board advises anyone looking at planning activities throughout the three years to consult the current calendar for that time period after the March 31st date.
