Grad requirements reviewed

Public feedback sought at Surrey discussion about future guidelines.

The province is looking to develop new future graduation requirements for B.C. teens and is seeking the public’s input.

Students, parents, educators, civic leaders and post-secondary partners are welcome at a feedback session scheduled in Surrey on Oct. 17.

Five key questions will be discussed:

• What do you think are the core or essential things all students should know, understand and be able to do by the time they leave secondary school?

• Beyond the core, how could pathways for choice or exploration be provided?

• Research is underway with a focus on the following five cross-curricular competencies: communication, critical thinking, creative thinking and innovation, personal responsibility and well being and social responsibility.

How do you think students could demonstrate these competencies?

• How could student learning be communicated to: students , parents/guardians and post-secondary institutions/employers?

• How would you design an awards program to recognize student success in a personalized learning environment?

The forum will be facilitated by Surrey School District’s Deputy Supt. Jordan Tinney and Lynn Archer, director of instruction.

Graduation Requirements Dialogue will run from 4-7 p.m. at the District Education Centre, 14033 92 Ave., room 2020. Refreshments and dinner will be provided.

Registration by Oct. 11 is required by emailing virginillo_l@surreyschools.ca.
