Approval Date: May 14, 2018
The purpose of this policy is to provide opportunities for elementary school students to reach ahead and take high school courses for credit towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).
This policy applies to all students of Nimbus Christian Education.
According to OS K-12 Section 220.127.116.11 “Under exceptional circumstances, an individual student in Grade 8, with parental consent, may be given permission by the principal of a secondary school to “reach ahead” to take secondary school courses, either during the school year or in the summer prior to entering Grade 9. The principal of the elementary school and the principal of the secondary school will decide, on a case-by-case basis, whether “reaching ahead” to take a secondary school course is in the best interest of the student. The principal of the secondary school will assume responsibility for evaluating the student’s achievement and for granting and recording the credit.”
