Night School

New for Fall 2016! All first semester night school courses will be offered in an online blended format.

An online blended course provides a flexible learning environment where a student completes a course using a variety of online resources and attends some classes face-to-face with the teacher and fellow classmates. Students, using a computer and the Internet, can access the online resources seven days a week, at all hours, for the duration of the course. There are mandatory dates students must attend night school, however the dates that are not required attendance allow the student to work on the course work on their own time or attend class at Cameron Heights Collegiate Institute (CHCI) for one-on-one support.

Mandatory Attendance Dates: The following dates are required attendance at CHCI on Monday, Sept. 19, Thursday, Sept. 22, Thursday, Oct. 6, Thursday, Oct. 20, Thursday, Nov. 3, Thursday, Nov. 17, Thursday, Dec. 1, Monday, Dec. 12, and Thursday, Dec. 15, 2016.

Monday, September 12, 2016, 6 – 7:30 p.m. at CHCI
Thursday, September 15, 2016, 6 – 7:30 p.m. at CHCI

More information can be found in our Fall 2016 Brochure.

Academic Responsibilities

  1. Evaluation – Your teacher will give you details with respect to your evaluation. It is your responsibility to keep informed of your progress. Consult often with your teacher. Major assignments are an important part of the learning program. Failure to complete such assignments, in most circumstances, will result in a loss of that credit.
  2. Examinations – Formal examinations are scheduled for all courses. Students are expected to WRITE their examination ON THE SCHEDULED DATES. Please understand that we are unable to excuse students from exams for any reason, other than illness; i.e. holidays or work are not acceptable reasons. A medical note, at a cost to the student, will be required.
  3. Final Marks – If you are a day school student (or were one in Waterloo Region within the last five years), your marks will be sent directly to the last school attended. All other students are responsible for submitting their final mark to their last school. In both cases, it is the students’ responsibility to ensure that the marks have been added to their records.
  4. Course Changes – Students are expected to make a firm commitment to their course for the semester. If enrolment numbers are not sufficient, some courses may be cancelled. Students who wish to change a course MUST HAVE A VERY GOOD REASON to do so.
  5. Textbooks – A book deposit of $50 (cash only) is required.

Attendance

Regular attendance is essential in order for credits to be granted. Students with irregular attendance will be interviewed by the supervisor and may be removed from the course.

Student attendance is monitored at night school. All students are expected to do the following:

  1. If you do not attend the first evening of classes you will be removed from the course unless you make prior arrangements by contacting night school at 519-885-0800.
  2. Attend ALL scheduled classes regularly and punctually. Students may be withdrawn from a course if they are absent from four evenings. Each evening is equivalent to three day classes. Two lates equal one absence.
  3. If you are unable to attend a class, please leave a message at 519-578-8330 x509. Please clearly state your name (please speak slowly and spell your first and last name), the course you will be absent from.
  4. If absent, catch up on all work missed. The student is responsible to ask the teacher to find out what work and assignments have been missed.
  5. Students who know they will be ABSENT FROM A TEST OR ASSIGNMENT must speak to the teacher beforehand. If the absence is unexpected, speak to the teacher immediately upon returning to school. Normally, if there is no communication, the student will get zero.
  6. It is your responsibility to be on time for each class. Students arriving late to class or leaving early will be recorded as one-half absent for that night. Report to the main office to sign in when you are late to receive an admit slip.
  7. Report to the main office to sign out if you leave before the conclusion of class. Failure to report will result in students not being admitted to their next class without an admit slip.
  8. Should weather conditions necessitate the cancellation of classes, information will be given over the following radio stations: CHYM (FM 96.7), CKGL (AM 570), Virgin Radio (FM 105.3), 1090 (AM) as well as on the WRDSB main website. Do not phone the schools. If classes are cancelled, make-up classes will be held on the following Tuesday evening.
