ORGANIZATION FOR INSTRUCTION The Board approves the concept that the needs of individual students must remain the primary consideration when developing school organization patterns for instruction and that the curricular assignment of teachers acknowledges that effective teachers who have strong knowledge of pedagogy and subject content knowledge, make a significant difference to student learning and achievement.
SEMESTER CHANGEOVER SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS The Board approves a maximum of 14 days for Senior High Schools to be used for examination, testing, and/or semester changeover purposes, subject to the approval of the Superintendent of Schools.
NUMBER OF REGISTRANTS - SEQUENTIAL COURSES
The Board wishes to ensure that students entering the first year of a sequential course have reasonable assurance that they will be able to complete the program. Consequently, in each school the number of registrants in the first year of a sequential course must be sufficient to sustain enrolments in subsequent years.
The number of registrants required to implement and/or maintain a course shall be determined by each school in consultation with the Administration.
