Guide to Education. Senior High Handbook 1989-90.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
This handbook provides information about the characteristics of students who are enrolled in senior high schools in Alberta and offers information useful in organizing and operating secondary schools to meet the needs of students. The first section of the handbook addresses the diverse characteristics and needs of senior high students, and provides the graduation requirements that each student must meet over the course of their senior high education. The "philosophy" statement included in this section addresses the significance and uniqueness of senior high education in the lives of these students and in their communities. The handbook is the first step in drawing together all of the information that is essential to school administrators. Policies, procedures, and organizational information required to operate a high school are included in the handbook, or, where not included, directions outlining where this information can be located are given. The handbook supports Alberta Education's objective of providing consistent direction while encouraging flexibility and discretion at the local level. (JD)
