HOW TO ENTER COURSES INTO MYED

CHOOSING COURSES

We encourage students to read course descriptions carefully and consult with their parents, counsellor, and or career resource facillitator before finalizing course selections for next year. In selecting courses, particularly for grade 10 and 11 students, post-secondary options should be considered.  Students are expected to take courses sequentially. Regardless of a student’s grade level, students should enroll in the first level of a course if they are electing the area of study for the first time with one exception. Students in grade 11 may choose a Foods 11 course without completing the grade 10 level course.  

A reminder to students that, in order to meet Graduation requirements, the 80 credits must be completed.
