Classes & Departments

At John G. Diefenbaker High School, all students are responsible for the completion of all assignments and all assessments. We believe that failure is not an option and will intervene to ensure that student learning is not compromised. 

Procedures

Students who do not complete their work on schedule will be expected to attend tutorials. Assignments will be completed during this time. Missed assignments may receive alternate weighting and more emphasis may be assigned to future assignments or future exams.

Missed tests, assignments or class work, due to absences, will also be made up with one or more of the interventions in the Circle of Success. Once a student is referred to an intervention, their attendance is mandatory.

  1. Teacher – Student – Parent or guardian | A first missed assignment will be made up in tutorial supervised by the teacher. The teacher will call the parent or guardian to inform them that an assignment has been missed and that the tutorial will serve as a makeup “demand” class. Students who skip the “demand” class will be referred to their AP.
  2. Teacher Advisor – TA | The subject teacher will notify the TA that a second assignment deadline has required intervention through tutorial assignment so that the TA can encourage the student to do their work on time. The TA may also consult with a Guidance Counsellor if they feel that other resources are required.
  3. Teacher – Student – Assistant Principal – Parent or Guardian | The teacher will refer a student to the appropriate administrator on the 3rd assignment missed, or earlier if a student is non–compliant. A student will be assigned to Friday School until assignments are completed. The Assistant Principal will contact parents/guardians to inform them that this is now a behaviour issue as well as a work issue.
