Returning Grade 12 Students
Students are generally expected to complete their high school education in six semesters. However, the Calgary Board of Education does make exceptional provision for students to request a fourth year of high school. The criteria for this request are stated in Administrative Regulation 6093, which reads:
- The purpose of a fourth year of high school is to complete a program of studies or to meet exceptional needs and circumstances;
- a fourth year of high school education is not for the purpose of upgrading;
- For students who have not reached the age of 19 by September 1st for current school year, the Principal may determine that the student has demonstrated commitment and responsibility by attending class regularly, successfully completing most course and planning a courses load to meet or exceed the expectations of the school;
- and the student has complied with the school code of conduct.
Students can apply by filling in a Returning 12 Application Form. These forms are available in Student Services from April and due in May 2018.
Knowledge & Employability (K&E) Course Registration
If your child is designated to James Fowler High School, simply make an appointment with a James Fowler High School guidance counsellor, and they can help your child register for K&E courses. If your child is not designated to James Fowler High School, you will need to go to your child’s designated high school in order to pick up a CBE school transfer form before making an appointment with a James Fowler High School guidance counsellor.
