Regarding Diploma Exam Exemptions
In order for students enrolled in Student Instruction (SI) with ADLC to be exempted from diploma exams, they must be registered to write the diploma exam.
- The registration deadline for the June writing period is April 9th.
- Please be certain to review your list ensuring that all students are registered.
- *NEW* Students who are enrolled in a Diploma Exam course for the first time and receiving Student Instruction at ADLC will have to register for the diploma exam using MyPass before April 9 to be eligible for the exemption;
- *NEW* Students who are retaking a diploma exam course will get a new school-awarded mark upon completion. We have been told that, “Diploma exam rewriters that have a new school-awarded mark will automatically receive an exemption. They do not need to register for the diploma as this would trigger a request for payment”.
Regarding ADLC Exam Supervision
Alberta Education provided direction regarding the continuity of education in a March 20, 2020 announcement: Continuing student learning. They also provided this list of Questions and Answers. ADLC has responded to this guidance as follows.
Because students are prohibited from entering schools and social distancing guidance in the current COVID-19 pandemic, ADLC will not be requiring students to attend their schools to have exams supervised. All ADLC teachers are developing a process that will work best for their students and will be communicating this directly to students.
As part of Alberta Education’s Continuity in Education plan, ADLC is working to ensure that the curricular outcomes of each course have been met and that students are prepared to move to the next phase of their schooling with the foundation needed to achieve success at the next level.
Questions about how exam writing and supervision will be conducted should be directed to the course teacher.
