Transition to high school – collection and use of personal student information

Posted on: July 3rd, 2014

As Grade 8 students progress from elementary school to secondary school, important personal student information is shared which eases each student’s transition to secondary school. Sharing this information also improves our ability to program effectively to benefit all students. Select student information will be shared at different times as appropriate. The collection and use of personal student information for such purposes is authorized under sections 170, 171, 190 Part X and Part XIII of the Education Act. Please note that all information used for the transition process is limited, secure and protected at all times. Please contact Jackie Kavanagh, Superintendent of Education for this area, if you would like more information about the transition process at Bear Creek.
