Summer School - Accelerated Secondary Credit (Gr. 9 - 12)

 Accelerated Program


Courses in this program are recommended for secondary students who wish to gain up to one credit in a subject they have not previously studied or wish to upgrade a mark in a course that they have successfully completed.  It is the responsibility of students and their guidance counsellors to ensure that all prerequisites have been met before registering for an accelerated course.  Up to one credit will be granted upon successful completion of the course. 

Accelerated courses run Monday through Friday.  Accelerated credit courses commence Wednesday July 3, 2019 and conclude Friday July 26, 2019. This program is not recommended for grade 8 students reaching ahead. 

Summative evaluations will be held on Thursday July 25th and Friday July 26th, 2019.  Attendance is MANDATORY on these days – no changes or exceptions can be made.  Students will be dismissed at 12:00 pm on Friday July 26th, 2019. 

Civics (CHV2O1) and Career Studies (GLC2O1) are separate courses and therefore require separate registrations. 

Students registered in Civics will complete a summative evaluation on Monday July 15th, 2019.  Students registered in Careers will complete a summative evaluation on Friday July 26th, 2019.  Attendance is MANDATORY on these days – no changes or exceptions can be made.   Note: the bussing schedule on July 15th will not be altered to accommodate early dismissal. 

Current DDSB students enrolled in an Accelerated course CANNOT take any other course in any other delivery model during the duration of the SUMMER 2019 program (i.e. Learn@Home, eLearning, Credit Recovery).
