Timetables and Course Changes

Please note that all timetables are tentative before the start of each semester.

 

Course Changes:

 

Students in grades 9, 10 & 11 should have full timetables (4 courses each semester). If that is not the case please do one of the following:

1. Check the 2021-22 Master Timetable above for a course that interests you in the period that you have a hole in your timetable. Then have a parent email Ms. Weselan at shelly.weselan@ed.amdsb.ca with permission to change/take the course. (Note some classes will be full and you may be placed on a waitlist).
 

or 2. If you are a self-motivated and independent learner, check for an online class that interests you on the PRISM eLearning site. In the dropdown menus, select "All School Boards" and "Semester 1 - Regular" or "Semester 2 - Regular". Then have a parent email Ms. Weselan at shelly.weselan@ed.amdsb.ca with permission to take the course. (Note some classes will be full and you may be placed on a waitlist).

 

or 3. If you wish to take a spare in grade 11, have a parent email Mrs. Weselan at shelly.weselan@ed.amdsb.ca with permission. (This is not advisable if you don't have 16 credits accumulated going into grade 11.)

 

Note These Course Codes:

  • FTEW is COOP
  • TFESS is Student Success

  • Students must have at least 2 classes per semester to play school sports.
  • Students need 30 credits to graduate, including 18 compulsory credits. Student are responsible for checking their credit accumulation in their portals to monitor their requirements to graduate. Please do not hesitate to email Ms. Weselan at shelly.weselan@ed.amdsb.ca for assistance if required.
  • Students applying to university require 6 grade 12 University "U" and/or Mixed "M" courses.
  • Students applying to college or university should be aware that many programs require specific prerequisites.
