The program is open to both high school students and Adult Learners who wish to earn a credit towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

It is important to note that these are High School Credit Courses. We do not offer General Interest or Beginner Courses.  All courses require successful completion of pre-requisites prior to enrollment. This includes students who are native speakers of a language which they wish to take as a Night School Credit.

All students will be required to complete all assignments,  tests and exams on time and maintain regular attendance (max 3 absences total). Failure to do so will result in removal from the program and a failing mark on the students permanent educational record.

Myblueprint tech support

Download and complete the registration form, then submit it to your home school’s Guidance/Student Services for verification.

A copy of your High School Transcripts must be attached to the registration form.

Email all completed forms and transcript to ConEd@hdsb.ca

I’m an adult. Is this course for me? If so, how do I register?

These are not General Interest courses. Courses are for learners working towards their high school diploma, completing prerequisites for Post-Secondary Education, or fulfilling employment requirements.   You will be required to participate in all classes (3 absences total) and complete all tests, quizzes, and the final exam. Credits will be recorded onto your permanent Ontario Student Record. Adults will be in the same  classroom as high school students. Students who are currently in High School and require the course credit will be given priority placement in the class in the event that the course course reaches capacity.

Can I register on site on the first day?

No. Registration closes September 29th at 12:00 p.m.  if space is available in the class.

Does the course take place in a classroom?

All Night School 2021-22 courses will start with Virtual Instruction through an online format, and will remain so until authorization for a return to In-Person Instruction is provided by Ontario Public Health and the Halton District School Board.

Students must be available for the full 3 hours of the online course.

Once authorization is granted, virtual learning will cease, and students will be required to attend courses in person.

How do I log into my course?

Students must log in to the link provided using an HDSB.ca email address and password. If you do not have one, one will be emailed prior to the 1st day of the course to the email address you indicated at time of registration. You may have to sign out of any other email accounts prior to logging in with an HDSB.CA email account.

Why do I need to provide medical information?

We require this information in case you have a medical emergency during class time.

What are the dates and times of the course?

All core courses run Monday and Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m.- 9:30 p.m. September 22nd to January 19th

Language courses run on Wednesday evenings, 6:30 p.m.- 9:30 p.m. September 22nd to May 4th

Are the Language Credit classes on Monday and Wednesdays as well?

All Language Credit courses will be held on Wednesday evenings, 6:30 to 9:30 pm.  This includes the German classes.

I am a native speaker of a language offered as a Night School Credit Course. Can I skip the pre-requisites?

There are no exceptions to skip the prerequisites, regardless of your knowledge of the language. This is because the curriculum in each level builds off of material covered in the previous level, very much in the same way that Grade 12 English requires the completion of Grade 11 English.

How do I get confirmation that my registration was approved?

Due to high numbers, we cannot confirm registration. Please contact your home school to ensure that you are registered. HDSB students can check their status in their Halton MyBlueprint account.

Can I take more than one course?

You only take one course through Night School per semester.

Is the course guaranteed to run?

Courses are conditional on enrollment. If we do not have enough students to run a class, we will try to combine classes.  Cancellations will be posted on www.garyallan.ca on September 17th, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. We will not have access to class numbers until that date/time.

I can’t participate in the course every day. Is that okay?

Students may miss a maximum of 3 days. Further absences will result in removal from the program.

What if I need to drop out?

You must complete a Drop Form. The last day to drop out of the course without the mark showing up on your official record is May 3rd, 2021.

Can I start/finish the course early?

No, course schedules cannot be modified.

Can I contact the teacher prior to the course?

Teachers are not assigned to a specific class until the first morning of school because enrollment numbers change drastically up until that time. You may only contact a teacher at this time.

I have an IEP. What do I do with it?

You must email a copy of your IEP to your teacher on the first day.

Is there an exam?

All courses have a final evaluation. Your teacher will explain all grading criteria in class.

How do I get my final mark?

Report cards will be sent to your home school.  If you are an adult, your final report will be mailed to your home address. Adult learners are responsible to ensure that a copy of their report is sent to the school that holds their educational records. This is typically the last school attended prior to Gary Allan Learning Centre.

How does my university/college get my marks?

If you are a Halton District School Board High School student, your mark will automatically be uploaded to OUAC/OCAS with your home school upload.

If you are from a school outside of the Halton District School Board, or an Adult Learner please complete a ‘Marks To University’ form.

Night School Semester 1 courses must be dropped prior to the Full Disclosure date of November 22nd,  2021.  The Full Disclosure date for Full year language courses is March 15th, 2022.
