Course Selection

Our master timetable is built based on student choices made during the original February - March selection period of the previous year. Students have been timetabled based on these selections.

Since the course selection period is over, students are no longer able to make changes using the Xello program, and must follow a different process.

To request a change, you must speak to a Student Services staff member at lunch, or by making an appointment.

Course selection materials will be sent to the email provided at registration.

Mandatory eLearning Graduation Requirement and Opt-out Information

If your child would like to opt-out of this requirement, you can do so at OCDSB 992 - Online Learning Graduation Requirement - Opt-Out form

We were just made aware of new graduation requirements for students relating to e-learning. These were released by the Ministry of Education and are explained in (PPM 167). The purpose is to provide students with access to a wider variety of courses, increase digital fluency and gain transferable skills to support lifelong learning.


- Beginning with the cohort of students who entered Grade 9 in 2020-21 (current Grade 10 students), all students must earn a minimum of two e-learning credits in order to graduate with an OSSD. Students in certificate pathways are exempted from this requirement.

- Students who were in Grade 9 in 2020-21 will receive one e-learning credit in recognition of their pandemic learning experiences.

- Please check with your guidance department to see if your student qualifies and has received the one e-learning credit from the OCDSB.

- E-learning courses are delivered asynchronously and cannot include those earned through in-person learning (same e-learning course and same educator together), blended learning, or remote learning (includes part synchronous learning).

- There is a form linked above that allows students/families to opt out of the e-learning graduation requirement.

- Adult learners entering in 2023-24 or later will be required to complete the e-learning requirement unless they opt out.
