The Graduation Program is the education program students must complete to earn a Graduation (Dogwood) Diploma. We recognize that elements of this program likely need to be changed to ensure success for each learner. Some of the ideas we’ve heard so far are that students:
- would benefit from choice and flexibility in meeting graduation requirements, including multiple options or pathways for success (e.g. academic, vocational)
- should meet graduation requirements through a demonstration of competencies rather than course completion
- could demonstrate their learning through a collection of work
These are just a few of the things we’ve heard. What do you think?
What should a graduation program look like to ensure success for all learners and support an effective transition to post-secondary education and/or work?
