Why are some language courses offered as ‘Full year’ and others are only in Semester 2?

All courses were offered as full year courses, however those that do not receive sufficient registration in September will be offered in Semester 2 to give students another opportunity to participate in the course.

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

High School students require successful completion of the prerequisites prior to enrolment, regardless of their experience in the language. Ex: A student must take the Grade 10 and 11 levels before taking grade 12. This is because each grade/level builds off of work completed in previous levels. There are no exceptions.

Adults (18 years +) do not require prerequisites, but it is strongly advised.

How do I get confirmation that my registration was approved?

Registrations will be confirmed by email. 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.

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 if possible. Cancellations will be posted on https://garyallan.ca/ on September 16th at 4:00 p.m. We will not have access to class numbers until that date.

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 request a Drop Form from your teacher. The last day to drop out of the course without the mark showing up on your official record is March 15th, 2023 for full year language classes,  November 21st, 2022 for Semester 1 classes, and May 1st, 2023 for Semester 2 courses.

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.  OUAC  Applicants must add Gary Allan High School – Night School, to their Academic Background
