All McNair students in Grades 8-11 will begin the process of selecting their courses for next year in early February. Students will be visited by Counsellors in their B block classes and will hear an overview of course and program options, post-secondary prerequisites and choices they have for next year. Students will receive an individualized Program Planning form in these visits and will later be taken to a computer lab to enter their selections into the computer. Students will be able to explore the online Program Planning guide, ask questions of counsellors and current teachers and complete their form. Parents are required to read and sign their teen's 2018-2019 Program Planning form and after the students have entered the course selections to the computer they will be required to submit their form to their Counsellor.
Please note that our timetable and staffing for next year will be driven by student enrollment and course selections. Students are urged to choose courses, including "alternative courses" wisely as course changes are not always possible in September. Alternative courses will be used if other choices do not run due to low enrollment or there is a course conflict in an student's individual timetable. Students will get a chance to confirm their course selections later in the spring.
Parents interested in learning more can read the online Program Planning guide or hopefully, they attended the information session at our Open House/Program Planning night that occurred on Thursday, January 25th.
Take the time now to plan for your future success!
Note - any Grade 12-aged students hoping to return to McNair in September must meet with their counsellor to discuss program options.
