Off-Campus Education

Background

The Division recognizes the value of allowing students to participate in workplace experiences at various work sites in the community, with the belief that such practical off-campus experiences will support the development of appropriate student skills, knowledge and attitudes.  The Division authorizes the offering of off-campus education programs by its secondary schools.

Procedures

  1. The Principal will:
    1. Review the suitability of workstations/worksites for off-campus education (may include Knowledge and Employability courses, Registered Apprenticeship programs, work study and work experience, Green Certificate, Career and Technology Studies and locally developed courses);
    2. Approve such sites on an annual basis, and inform the Superintendent or designate of approved sites;
    3. Ensure that the provincial requirements for off-campus study are well understood by teachers whose role will include supervision of off-campus programming;
    4. Monitor to ensure compliance with provincial requirements; and
    5. Communicate with parents about the intent of off-campus programming and gain the consent of parents (or the student, if he or she is sixteen years of age or older) for student participation in such programming.
