Literacy Assessment April 2021 Student Schedule

If you’re considering a career path in the skilled trades, technology, fashion design, or health care, VSB Career Programs are the way to go! They offer training programs you can complete during grade 12 at either VCC, BCIT, the Piping Industry College, or a VSB school. Here a few key points to consider:
- You’ll earn both high school and post-secondary credit at the same time
- Your tuition is paid by the VSB for these programs
- You could start a paid apprenticeship while earning credits toward graduation
- Some programs are full-time at VCC or BCIT, while others are split between Killarney and another VSB school
- All of these programs lead to graduation and a post-secondary credential
Now is the time to start thinking about this opportunity! These career options are the kind that have grown during the pandemic and offer economic stability and plenty of job opportunities.
These programs can only be funded during your grade 12 year. Application deadlines are in December and March of your grade 11 year. You are encouraged, however, to apply in grade 10. For more information, contact Ms. Sum or Mr. Ferguson or visit careerprograms.vsb.bc.ca.
Hello grade 10, 11, & 12's.
The Delta School District will be offering Language Challenge Exams in January, 2021. They will follow all provincial health protocols and plan to have a successful exam sitting.
The purpose of Challenge is to permit students to obtain credit for a Grade 11 or 12 course who have already acquired the appropriate learning elsewhere. All students are entitled to request an opportunity to challenge courses for credit. Students who request the opportunity to challenge a course must be able to give strong and compelling evidence that they will succeed in the challenge and that it is in their best interests. Challenge provides students with an opportunity to demonstrate that they have satisfied the learning outcomes of a course in the graduation program and to enable them to earn credits without taking the course. Challenge is not a way for students to improve their course marks, nor a replacement for the valuable experience of learning in a classroom setting.
Please find attached information regarding the Challenge Exams for Students. The student deadline for dropping off application packages to their grade counsellor is November 3rd. Cheques should be made payable to “Delta School District”. Please make sure you follow the directions VERY carefully before submitting your application to your counsellor.
