KNOWLEDGE​ ​AND​ ​EMPLOYABILITY​ ​COURSES Background The​ ​district​ ​is​ ​committed​ ​to​ ​providing​ ​all​ ​students​ ​with​ ​opportunities​ ​to​ ​experience​ ​success​ ​in school.​ ​To​ ​this​ ​end,​ ​the​ ​district​ ​has​ ​encouraged​ ​and​ ​supported​ ​the​ ​development​ ​of​ ​the Knowledge​ ​and​ ​Employability​ ​(K&E)​ ​courses​ ​to​ ​serve​ ​the​ ​needs​ ​of​ ​students​ ​who​ ​benefit​ ​from​ ​a level​ ​of​ ​courses​ ​that​ ​make​ ​connections​ ​between​ ​schooling,​ ​everyday​ ​experiences​ ​and​ ​future choices. The​ ​K&E​ ​courses​ ​are​ ​specifically​ ​designed​ ​to​ ​involve​ ​students​ ​with​ ​hands-on​ ​learning experiences​ ​and​ ​assist​ ​them​ ​in​ ​their​ ​successful​ ​transition​ ​to​ ​the​ ​workplace.​ ​These​ ​courses​ ​are particularly​ ​effective​ ​in​ ​connecting​ ​in-school​ ​learning​ ​with​ ​home,​ ​community​ ​and​ ​workplace experiences.​ ​In​ ​addition,​ ​these​ ​courses​ ​provide​ ​opportunities​ ​for​ ​students​ ​to​ ​become​ ​better prepared​ ​for​ ​employment,​ ​further​ ​studies​ ​and​ ​life-long​ ​learning. Procedures 1. Knowledge​ ​and​ ​Employability​ ​courses​ ​are​ ​available​ ​to​ ​students​ ​in​ ​grades​ ​8-12.​ ​Students must​ ​be​ ​12​ ​years​ ​and​ ​six​ ​months​ ​of​ ​age​ ​or​ ​older​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​enroll​ ​in​ ​a​ ​K&E​ ​course. Principals​ ​shall​ ​ensure​ ​that​ ​students​ ​are​ ​enrolled​ ​in​ ​courses​ ​appropriate​ ​to​ ​their​ ​highest​ ​level of​ ​achievement. 2. Students​ ​who​ ​meet​ ​the​ ​profile​ ​may​ ​enroll​ ​in​ ​one​ ​or​ ​more​ ​courses​ ​at​ ​the​ ​usual​ ​registration time​ ​(September​ ​for​ ​grades​ ​8-9​ ​and​ ​September​ ​and​ ​January​ ​for​ ​grades​ ​10-12).​ ​Students may​ ​transition​ ​in​ ​and​ ​out​ ​of​ ​K&E​ ​courses​ ​throughout​ ​grades​ ​8-12​ ​at​ ​appropriate​ ​intervals. Principals,​ ​in​ ​collaboration​ ​with​ ​students​ ​and​ ​parents/legal​ ​guardians,​ ​may​ ​make​ ​decisions related​ ​to​ ​course​ ​registration​ ​throughout​ ​the​ ​year.​ ​This​ ​practice​ ​reflects​ ​the​ ​flexibility​ ​of​ ​the district​ ​in​ ​supporting​ ​students​ ​to​ ​achieve​ ​their​ ​highest​ ​level​ ​of​ ​success. 3. Successful​ ​completion​ ​of​ ​80​ ​credits​ ​will​ ​result​ ​in​ ​the​ ​awarding​ ​of​ ​a​ ​provincial​ ​Certificate​ ​of High​ ​School​ ​Achievement.​ ​This​ ​certificate​ ​recognizes​ ​that​ ​the​ ​student​ ​has​ ​successfully completed​ ​high​ ​school​ ​in​ ​Alberta. 4. Principals​ ​must​ ​articulate​ ​clearly​ ​and​ ​document​ ​the​ ​implications​ ​of​ ​a​ ​student​ ​taking​ ​a​ ​K&E course​ ​since​ ​a​ ​K&E​ ​course​ ​does​ ​not​ ​meet​ ​the​ ​requirements​ ​of​ ​a​ ​high​ ​school​ ​diploma. 5. Student​ ​Profile 5.1

Students​ ​must​ ​be​ ​motivated​ ​to​ ​succeed​ ​in​ ​school​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​be​ ​better​ ​prepared​ ​for the​ ​workplace​ ​and/or​ ​post-secondary​ ​education.​ ​K&E​ ​courses​ ​are​ ​designed​ ​for​ ​those who​ ​demonstrate​ ​academic​ ​skills​ ​of​ ​reading,​ ​writing,​ ​math​ ​and​ ​other​ ​levels​ ​of achievement​ ​two​ ​to​ ​three​ ​years​ ​below​ ​those​ ​of​ ​their​ ​age​ ​peers.

Determination​ ​of​ ​academic​ ​level​ ​is​ ​made​ ​by​ ​teachers​ ​through​ ​the​ ​ongoing​ ​process​ ​of collecting​ ​information​ ​formally​ ​and​ ​informally​ ​across​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​domains.​ ​This includes​ ​standardized​ ​and​ ​classroom​ ​assessments.​ ​The​ ​students’​ ​assessments​ ​will indicate​ ​that​ ​their​ ​needs​ ​and​ ​abilities​ ​will​ ​be​ ​best​ ​addressed​ ​through​ ​one​ ​or​ ​more​ ​of the​ ​K&E​ ​courses.


Students​ ​with​ ​some​ ​identified​ ​special​ ​education​ ​needs​ ​may​ ​be​ ​enrolled​ ​in​ ​one​ ​or more​ ​K&E​ ​courses​ ​if​ ​the​ ​courses​ ​are​ ​deemed​ ​appropriate​ ​to​ ​the​ ​individual​ ​and​ ​if​ ​the programming​ ​meets​ ​the​ ​requirements​ ​outlined​ ​in​ ​the​ S ​ tandards​ ​for​ ​Special Education​.

6. Parental/Legal​ ​Guardian​ ​Consent 6.1

For​ ​a​ ​student​ ​to​ ​take​ ​a​ ​K&E​ ​course,​ ​the​ ​student​ ​must​ ​sign​ ​a​ ​consent​ ​form​ ​(F ​ orm 215-1​)​ ​annually.​ ​If​ ​the​ ​student​ ​is​ ​under​ ​the​ ​age​ ​of​ ​16,​ ​a​ ​parent/legal​ ​guardian​ ​must also​ ​sign​ ​the​ ​consent​ ​form.

7. Consultation 7.1

Consultation​ ​to​ ​determine​ ​eligibility​ ​will​ ​include​ ​the​ ​student,​ ​parents/legal​ ​guardians, teachers,​ ​counsellors​ ​and​ ​other​ ​staff.​ ​Information​ ​about​ ​the​ ​philosophy,​ ​goals​ ​and nature​ ​of​ ​the​ ​courses​ ​must​ ​be​ ​provided.​ ​The​ ​students​ ​and​ ​their​ ​parents/legal guardians​ ​must​ ​be​ ​informed​ ​about​ ​transitions​ ​from​ ​these​ ​courses​ ​to​ ​secondary, post-secondary​ ​and​ ​workplace​ ​opportunities.​ ​A​ ​written​ ​plan​ ​must​ ​be​ ​developed​ ​that clearly​ ​states​ ​the​ ​student’s​ ​goals​ ​and​ ​the​ ​courses​ ​needed​ ​to​ ​achieve​ ​these​ ​goals.
