Principal's Message

Thank you for welcoming me.

​Spring often is reflected in our minds as a time of change, a time of growth and a time of new beginnings. I wanted to this opportunity to thank the staff, students and communities of Discovering Choices for welcoming me as the new principal. I believe the Calgary Board of Education strives to support each student, every day, and no exceptions.
Each student, in keeping with their individual abilities and gifts will complete high school with a foundation of learning necessary to thrive in life, work and continued learning. This is the mission of the Calgary Board of Education.
Discovering Choices is a critical program that offers programming to keep the pathways accessible and offers supports for students. Discovering Choices programs provide avenues of success for students outside of the regular comprehensive community based high school.
I am looking forward to my time as Principal of Discovering Choices and getting to know the students, families and staff that make this such a vibrant, positive and hopeful environment to work in each day.
A unique aspect of an outreach high school program is that it allows our staff to work closely with students and their families in pursuit of high school graduation, credit attainment, transition to employment and personal health and wellness. Due to this unique relationship and environment we continue to be able top provide multiple options for students to engage with school and their courses.  
1)      In-person learning: You are welcome to attend school during regular hours.
2)      Learning Package: You are welcome to come into school during regular hours and meet with your teacher to receive school work for the duration of the mandatory restrictions. When meeting with your teacher you will decide together how you will best connect when you need assistance with your assignments. Some options include a phone call, email, or through Google Meets.
3)      Virtual Blended Option: If you have access to technology, you can access assignments by email, or by accessing your teacher's D2L shell. You can have ongoing contact with your teacher through phone calls, email, or through Google Meets.
As we are offering several options to support your learning, please know that if you choose to work from home it will be necessary to pre-arrange times to have individual contact with your teacher because your teacher will also be supporting in-person learning. Whatever option you engage with please remember you and your family is an important part of our community. Please reach out to a trusted staff member at the school for any support you or your family may require.
Thank you for welcoming me to the community,
 
Dr. Don Barbor Principal
