Introduction – In the fall, Ms. Williams, Ms. Roberts and Mr. Larson and the Counsellors met with all Grade 12’s to go over the requirements to be eligible to participate in the Recognition Ceremonies graduation:
These requirements are:
The first eligibility lists will be posted following the report card in April. The lists will indicate which students are eligible, which have problems or issues to be resolved and also those who are not eligible at this time. Students will have approximately 3 weeks to correct all deficiencies. Common issues include attendance concerns, unpaid fees, failing key courses, missing High School diploma requirements, or outstanding textbooks. The final eligibility list will be posted on May 15, 2017. Grade 12 students will be expected to convey key dates and details about eligibility to their parents. Throughout the year parents can check our newsletters or our school website www.strathmorehighschool.com for updated information on the Recognition Ceremonies.
Hopefully, students plan carefully and work hard so that they have a clear eligibility. If students drop courses, do not complete all modules in CTS courses, or fail courses during the first term, they must see a counselor immediately to pick up additional courses if necessary to meet eligibility requirements. All Grade 12 students are encouraged to make an appointment with a counselor early in the school year to ensure that they will meet all requirements and so that they will be eligible to participate in Recognition Ceremonies and receive their diploma or certificate.
