Letter to Parents from Minister Fleming

Honourable Rob Fleming, Minister of Education, has written a letter to parents and guardians in regard to the new curriculum implementation, specific to Grades 11 and 12.  Minister Fleming has added an additional year for the transition to be completed.

"As Minister of Education, it is one of my top priorities to ensure all students experience a seamless transition to the new curriculum.  That is why we are adding an additional year of transition time to bring in the Grade 11-12 curriculum - now all students will be using it starting in September 2019. The grade 10 curriculum will be implemented as planned in September 2018...With this extra year, we will ensure teachers have what they need to support students as they develop the skills they need to transition smoothly to the post-secondary institutions and jobs of their choice."
