There are two sets of final examinations, one in January and one in June of each year. Students should be in the school fifteen (15) minutes before the start of examinations. The cafeteria will not be serving lunches. If you bring your lunch, it must be eaten in the cafeteria.
In the event of inclement weather, the exam schedule will be moved back one day. (e.g. If Tuesday’s exams were cancelled, they would be written on the Wednesday.)
Buses run at regularly scheduled times.
A student whose achievement is below 50% at the end of the course will not obtain a credit for the course.
Parents are encouraged to consult their son’s/daughter’s notebook to become familiar with the Department policy for each subject. This policy is provided to each student at the beginning of each Semester.
GRADE 9 AND 10 FINAL ASSESSMENT
As part of the St. Charles College Student Success Program, our goal is to provide additional opportunities for at-risk students to experience success with the Ministry required 30% final assessment and place value on good school attendance.
For each semester and with each course, students will complete a culminating activity worth 30% of their final mark.
Upon completion of the culminating activity, students with an overall final mark of 75% and with 10 or less days of absenteeism, will not be required to write the final exam. The final culminating activity will serve to determine that the student has demonstrated most of the required knowledge and skills, and that the provincial standard has been met.
Upon completion of the culminating activity, students with an overall final mark under 75% and with more than 10 days of absenteeism, will write the final exam. The culminating activity for these students will then count as 15% and the exam will be 15%, giving them additional opportunity to be successful and attain the credit.
A report of each student’s progress will be issued after the final exams. As well, interim reports (five weeks into the term), and mid-term reports will be issued in the fall and the spring. Students are encouraged to talk to their parents, their teachers and the Guidance Department about these reports.
Students who succeed in getting 75% or better become members of the “St. Charles College Honour Roll.
