Substitutions for Compulsory Credits
In order to allow flexibility in designing a student’s program and to ensure that all students can qualify for the secondary school diploma, substitutions may be granted for a limited number of compulsory credit courses from the remaining courses offered by the school that meet the requirements for compulsory credits.
Substitutions should be made to promote and enhance student learning or to meet special needs and interests.
If a parent or an adult student requests a substitution, the principal will determine whether or not a substitution should be made. A principal or designate may also initiate consideration of whether a substitution should be made. Each substitution will be noted on the student’s Ontario Student Transcript. Documentation will be placed in the Ontario Student Record.
