Alternative & Continuing Education
The Alternative & Continuing Education Program at the LKDSB offers a number of programs:
The Adult Education Program is primarily for use by adults, over the age of 18, who wish to upgrade their academic credentials or complete their secondary education.
Programs are available to assist students who have experienced difficulty in a traditional secondary school setting and who are in need of an alternative program delivery model. Students are referred to these programs by their home school principal. Information on available programs can be obtained from Student Services.
Secondary school credit courses can be attained by independent study.
Literacy and Basic Skills
This program is available to students not currently enrolled in regular day school. An individualized program tailored to the student's needs allows for continuous intake. Each student's program is supervised by qualified instructors. Programs are available in several locations throughout the District.
This Employment Ontario program is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario and through the Canada-Ontario Job Fund Agreement.
