Credit Upgrading – In-Person or Remote Learning

Courses in this program are designed for students (with home school approval) who, during the 2021-2022 academic year, have been successful in one or two subjects, and wish to upgrade their mark or revisit course concepts.  The student MUST take the same course grade and stream that was previously taken.  For students in grades 9 to 12, the upgraded mark along with the previously earned mark will be entered on the student’s Ontario Student Transcript (OST).   These courses do not grant additional credits.  Additional student support may be available through on-line academic tutors for select courses. 

This program is open to current DDSB students only. 

Note: The Ontario Ministry of Education has not committed to continuing this program at this time. Should the program not be approved, students will be notified and can work with guidance counsellor to seek other options.
