Summer break is just around the corner, and many students are wondering what happens during the summer. Please read below to find out:
Summer Vacation - June 24th -> September 7th
During summer vacation students can continue to work on their courses, however teachers are unavailable, and course-work may not be graded until the beginning of the next school year.
Please be aware that the first few weeks after summer vacation usually result in a backlog of assignments and emails. Assignments will be marked, and emails will be answered. Your patience is appreciated.
What if I need to graduate this year and am taking an EOP course?
If you are taking an EOP course that you need to complete in order to graduate this year (June 2022), all assignments must be handed in by June 13th.
Why so early?
The cut-off date is chosen to allow teachers to be able to mark all of the assignments. Many students needing to graduate hand in work in June. All of that work needs to be marked. Once all the assignments are marked, and the course is complete, the mark has to be transferred to the transcript, which also takes time.
Can I get an extension?
If you require an extension, please be sure to talk with your teacher. Your teacher may be able to extend the deadline to the day before the last day of school (June 22nd 2022). However, please be aware that the more students who ask for extensions, and the more assignments that are handed in last minute, the greater the load on the teacher to mark them all. Teachers will do their best to mark all assignments, but there is more risk of delays / problems the closer to the end of school.
What if I don't need to graduate in June?
If you are not planning on graduating in June, you can work on your courses over the summer. While teacher support and marking won't be officially available, you are more than welcome to hand in assignments and progress through the course.
If you complete the course over the summer, you can still graduate when the work gets marked once school begins again.
If you are taking Grade 10, 11 courses, or don't need to graduate, you have an entire year once enrolling in the course to complete it.
Be sure to ask your teacher if you are not sure about something, or send an email to email@example.com
