Dear NorthStar Students and Parents,
Good news - we have been given permission to proceed with summer school. Recent changes brought in by Alberta Education had cast doubt upon our ability to offer summer school classes, but we have figured out a strategy to manage the 45 credit cap.
- We will accept students who are registered full-time with NorthStar. We will still have to review each registration to determine if the summer school course desired fits within each student's 45 credit limit, but we will be able to manage that credit count for our students.
- Students who are registered with other school authorities are more of a challenge as determining their credit count is difficult. We will review any applications from students with other school authorities, but we will be cautious with these registrations as offering a class for which we will not receive funding is not a sustainable practice.
If you have questions, which given the current situation is quite likely, please do not hesitate to contact us at the office.
Yours in Christ,
