Change for students planning to graduate in the 2021-22 school year

The ministry provided increased flexibility in how all secondary students can earn hours in 2021-22, as follows:

  1. At the principal’s discretion, schools may waive the restrictions that do not allow students to earn hours during the time allotted for the instructional program on a school day, or duties normally performed in the home (e.g., walking a younger child to and from school, helping younger siblings with school work).

  2. Students aged 14 years and older can count up to a maximum of 10 hours from paid employment towards their earned hours at the discretion of the principal.
Note: Students counting paid employment towards their graduation requirement will be required to complete the reflection exercise attached below indicating how their work contributed to the service for others.

These policies can change at any time, so if you have hours you can use, please submit them ASAP by emailing a scan or photo to Mrs. Stuckless at elizabeth.stuckless@ed.amdsb.ca. (Please ensure your form is completely filled in including your parent's signature at the bottom.)
