 Online Marks for Graduation  

An important email sent on behalf of Geoff Taylor, Byng Principal
 
To All Students/Families taking online courses that they wish to have appear in the Provincial Transcript for Graduation:
 
You are advised that all in most cases Online Schools will need all assignments completed & submitted by June 2nd, for this mark to be included in their transcripts. If you’re in a VLN course, please adhere to this deadline. If you’re using a different online platform, please check with your provider immediately.
 
If your online mark misses Lord Byng’s final data submission to the Ministry of Education, you may be listed as a Non-Grad.  This means
  • You will not receive a diploma
  • Your post-secondary application may be revoked
  • You may be disqualified from scholarships
Therefore, we strongly recommend that all students taking courses at VLN and/or other online schools, complete all courses by June 2nd to allow time for marking.
Regards,
Geoff Taylor

Grad Transitions 2019 / Capstone 2020 

REMINDER: Grad requirements: Grad Transitions (2018-2019); Career-Life Connections (CLC) with Capstone (2019-2020)
 
All current Byng Grade 12 students must complete Grad Transitions and hand it in to the office before June 14, in order to earn their high school diploma in BC. (Do it if you wish to graduate this school year.)
 
If you’re in Grade 12 and have not yet completed and handed in your GT, you may wish to register for GT online at VLN, before the end of June, with the hope of finishing sometime over the next year. (In most cases, you won’t be eligible for post-secondary admission until you complete GT.) Students who haven’t completed GT will be on the CLC/Capstone path, and not officially graduating until they complete both CLC and a Capstone Project.
 
Current Grade 11s should note that we are not offering Capstone and Career-Life Connections (CLC) for next school year’s Grade 12s on our Lord Byng timetable in 2019-2020. It is highly recommended that Current Byng Grade 11 students complete Grad Transitions (GT) this school year, by getting all their GT work done and turned into the school office before FINAL DEADLINE TO HAND IN GT TO OFFICE June 14, 2019.
 
Any Grade 11 student who completes GT before June 14 will not have to complete CLC and Capstone in 2019-2020, as GT meets that BC graduation requirement. GT is not available in our school after this school year, and not available for registration in any school after July 1st, 2019.
 
NOTE: Current Lord Byng Grade 11 students who do not finish Grad Transitions (GT) by June 14th, 2019 may register for GT in VLN BEFORE the end of June 2019, and complete the online VLN GT course during their Grade 12 year. Registering for GT in VLN before the end of June is the last opportunity for any Byng student (currently Gr. 11 or 12) to complete GT rather than completing CLC and Capstone.
 
Current Byng Grade 11 students and/or new 2019-2020 Byng Gr. 12 students who have not completed GT before the end of June 2019, and do not register in GT with VLN before the end of June 2019, should register for CLC and Capstone through VLN after July 1, 2019, as we’re not able to offer these courses for Grade 12 students at Lord Byng in the 2019/2020 school year. Only our 2019-2020 Grade 11 students are in CLC for 2019-2020, due to staffing constraints.
