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 2022-23 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 [email protected] 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 [email protected] 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 Ms. Weselan at [email protected] with permission. (This is not advisable if you don't have 16 credits accumulated going into grade 11.)

 

Note These Course Codes:

  • COP4X2 is Co-op
  • NBE3E/NBE3C/NBE3U are grade 11 English codes for the "First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Voices" version of English. The AMDSB only offers this version in grade 11 like many boards.

Timetable Specifics for Senior Students:

  • Students going into grade 12 and 5th year should ideally plan to be "full time students" (3 or more courses per semester). Being part-time can affect your OSAP (post-secondary funding).
  • 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 to monitor their requirements to graduate. Please do not hesitate to email Ms. Weselan at [email protected] 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.
