As students move through high school, they are faced with decisions that will determine future opportunities and endeavors. This handbook provides parents with information on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes students in Alberta are expected to be able to demonstrate when they have completed their senior high school programs. Following introductory material, the handbook provides a program overview, including diploma requirements, a program planner and instructions, and descriptions of adjunct programs such as immersion/bilingual programs, off-campus education, a registered apprentice program, and distance learning. Next, the handbook describes the high school core courses: English Language Arts; Mathematics; Science; Social Studies; Career and Life Management; Physical Education; and Technology. Optional courses described are: career and technology studies; fine arts; second languages; and physical education. The handbook concludes with answers to frequently asked questions and a one-page questionnaire asking for feedback about the handbook. (HTH)
