In addition to the ongoing assessments throughout the year, teachers may choose to conduct various forms of summative assessment during the final days of school in June. The school timetable will adjust to allow for these assessments to be conducted. One class will be held in the morning and one in the afternoon for the final four days of school. We will still rotate through the 8-block rotation over the four days in this order.
June 17 – Block A & C
June 18 – Block E & G
June 19 – Block B & D
June 20 – Block F & H

June 20 – Students are expected to have all of their textbooks returned to their teacher by the end of the day unless arrangements are made with a teacher ahead of time to keep until provincial exam is completed. Fees will be assessed for missing textbooks.
June 20 – Students are expected to have their lockers cleaned out by the end of the day.
June 24-27 – Numeracy Exams 10/11 & Provincial Exams.
Graduation assessments are changing to align with the new curriculum. As part of the updated graduation requirements, students in the 2018 Graduation Program will have to complete two provincial assessments. They will focus on the demonstration and application of numeracy and literacy.
The Graduation Numeracy Assessment was introduced in the 2017/18 school year. If a student has already passed a Math 10 course and taken the associated provincial exam, they do not need to take the Numeracy Assessment Exam.
The Graduation Literacy Assessment is still under development and will be introduced in the 2019/20 school year (all Language Arts 12 examinations will continue until that time, and then be phased out in the process).
The Language Arts 12 exams will be phased out as the Literacy Assessment is introduced. Until the Literacy Assessment is fully implemented in the 2019/20 school year, the Language Arts 12 exam will remain in place and will continue to be 40% of the final, blended mark for Language Arts 12 courses.
- Students graduating in the 2018/19 school year will take a Language Arts 12 course and associated provincial exam to satisfy graduation requirements for the 2018 Graduation Program.
*Francophone and French Immersion students who wish to graduate with a Double Dogwood (both the British Columbia Certificate of Graduation and the Diplôme de fin d’études secondaires) will need to complete both the English Literacy Assessment plus the Évaluation de littératie – Français langue première (Francophone students) or the Évaluation de littératie – Français langue seconde – Immersion (Immersion students).
