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.
