Goals of Dual Credits SecondaryPost-Secondary Increase OSS credit accumulation Increase OSSD accumulation Increase student retention Support students in a SHSM Ease transition Lighter course load Increase participation rates at colleges Improve credit accumulation Improve retention Increase number of students entering apprenticeships
Focus of Dual Credits “…continues to be on those students facing the biggest challenges in graduating. – disengaged and underachieving students – potential to succeed – students who have left high school before graduating. Specialist High Skills Major Ontario Youth Apprenticeship
Why Collect Data? Data lays the foundation for our regional program planning. It is essential that accurate information be collected to inform our decisions for the next year.
Which Data Collection System Do we Use? Each of the ELRPT school boards collect data using Adobe LiveCycle hosted on the KPRDSB Network. Each Board has there own confidential login and link to access the data entry form.
What role does the teacher play? Accurate reporting by teachers combined with a clearly worded data collection tool is key
You get what you ask for… The ELRPT team continues to learn about the importance of asking the right question. We need to be sure that our form is clear and concise.
