Students start their Personal Transition Plan (PTP) in their freshmen Advisory class and complete all Advisory assignments in grades 9-12. Students receive an S or U mark in this non-credit course.
In grade 12, students must earn a satisfactory "S" as their final mark in their PTP Advisory class. Assignments for all 4 years must be completed satisfactorily. Students are eligible to make-up any missing assignment; at any time. The new grade will be reflected in the next marking period. Students who receive a final "U" mark in PTP will not earn a high school diploma. Advisory and PTP marks are not used in the calculation of a student's GPA. New students are responsible for PTP work from the time of enrollment.
