ELCOME TO MITCHELL DISTRICT HIGH SCHOOL HOME OF THE BLUE DEVILS by Jim Ryan – Principal

It is an exci ng and challenging me: imagining a future and choosing the learning path to get there. If you are somewhat unsure of your des na on, do not worry; most people experience that dilemma at some point in life. Indeed, the reality of employment today and for the future is that most of us will take on a wide variety of jobs tes ng our flexibility and problem-solving skills in an ever-changing environment. Indeed, some day you may well find yourself doing a job that has not been invented yet.

To plan for such a future one needs a complete and challenging academic experience. Choose your courses carefully as your requests have a direct impact on the number of staff we will have available and the assignment of staff based on student needs. Assuming that you can just change later, if you change your mind, could lead to disappointment as that course may be full or no longer offered due to modest enrolment. By choosing a full program, you keep your op ons open. I urge you to think beyond the minimum number of courses required to graduate as the more experience you gain now, the more career paths remain open to you later. Take me to review your choices carefully; meet with our Student Services counselors, get your selec on sheet in on me. Research the career paths which interest you and take the next steps toward your success.

Be Respectful of and Cooperative with Others

District You are expected to be courteous, coopera ve and accep ng in your dealings with others. It is understood thatMitchell you will not harass others either verbally, physically or emo onally. Courteous, coopera ve and accep ng behaviour creates a posi ve environment both High School in school and in the workplace.

Maturity in dealing with rela onships is expected in school as well as in the workplace. Be Respectful of Other People’s Property You are expected to treat the school grounds, the school property, and the personal property of others with respect. This concern for respect extends to our neighbours. Textbooks, library books, lockers, and other school property are on loan to students for use during the school year and must be maintained in good order.


SUPPORT SERVICES, RESOURCES AND SPECIAL PROGRAMS Guidance and Career Education Program The Guidance and Career Educa on Program at MDHS provides the skills, knowledge, and a tudes necessary for students to know and appreciate themselves, to relate effec vely to others, to develop appropriate educa onal plans and to explore career alterna ves. These objec ves are met through individual interviews and classroom instruc on. Student Services is your liaison with community resources, post-secondary educa onal ins tu ons, the world of work and with the home.

Special Education All excep onal students are monitored regularly. Throughout the school year, the student’s teachers may be asked to make a wri en report on the student’s progress to date. This maintains a direct contact with the Resource Teacher who provides one-on-one support to the student including help with homework, organiza on, etc. and provides the student opportuni es to develop learning strategies. Excep onal students may also choose to include GLE1O, GLE2O, GLE3O and GLE4O in their course selec ons. These courses provide opportuni es to refine learning skills.

Resource Centre/Cross-Curricular Computer Lab The Resource Centre at MDHS provides students with tradi onal library services: access to books, encyclopedias, magazines and newspapers.

In addi on to the computers available for individual or classroom use in the Resource Centre, there is an addi onal cross-curricular computer lab that is available for student use during class me.

English As A Second Language The Avon Maitland District School Board recognizes that secondary ESL students face unique challenges as they pursue their secondary diploma and make the transi on to full fluency in English. Students in the early stages of English acquisi on may monitor courses or work for par al credits if they are not able to meet the curriculum expecta ons for a course. Adapted programming helps students achieve credits in courses even if their communica on skills are not developed sufficiently to demonstrate their learning. ESL students may also be provided with tutoring to enable them to expand their language skills more rapidly. While students may need more than 4 years to complete their diploma, Avon Maitland District School Board students who take ESL are given the assistance they need to fulfill their long term goals.

Course Selection All students have the opportunity to select their courses of study within certain guidelines. With this comes the responsibility to choose wisely, having regard for present interests and abili es and future voca onal or educa onal plans. This responsibility rests on the student and his or her parents a er thorough inves ga on and advice from secondary school teachers and guidance personnel. Some courses require previously gained knowledge and skills. The student must complete courses iden fied as being a prerequisite course successfully before he/she can a empt any course demanding that prerequisite. It is the policy of MDHS that students who have accumulated fewer than 16 credits must enroll in a full eight-credit metable. Excep ons to this rule may be considered on an individual basis.

Course Changes Students wan ng to make a course change to their exis ng metables should discuss the situa on with a counsellor in Student Services. A course change form will be given to the student. The form begins a process that will involve teachers and parents.

Courses in this Calendar will be Offered Where There is Sufficient Enrolment. All courses are worth one credit unless otherwise noted. Although diploma requirements may be completed in four years, students wishing to include a wider variety of courses in their metables may choose to a end secondary school for five or more years.
