Important Reminder for Grade 12 Students  

 
Remember to authorize your post-secondary institutions (P.S.I’s) to view your transcript through the Ministry website after creating your BCeID. If you fail to do so, your post-secondary institutions will be unable to verify your marks in May and July which will cause you major headaches and delay! Please see the Lord Byng website under Grade 12 students and scroll down to the January 23rd Career Info Session link for more details (please start at slide 8).
 
Thank you, Ms. Smith.

Grads, 

Important Reminder to Grade 12’s wanting a reference letter, scholarship, or Common App recommendation from Ms. Smith

 

Ms. Smith needs your properly organized portfolio plus a minimum of two full work weeks’ notice for a reference letter or any written recommendation.

Please note:  If students submit their properly organized portfolio exactly two weeks prior to a deadline, Ms. Smith’s letter will likely be unhelpful to their cause.  In other words, students should put forth their requests well in advance to any deadline date for high quality helpful letters.


   

Grade 12 Student Transcript Service (STS) Update 

The Ministry of Education has advised that First Term marks will not be on the Transcripts from the Ministry website.  Therefore, the Student Transcript Service (STS) should not be used at this time to send Transcripts to post-secondary institutions.  

Grade 12 students will need to request a Diploma Verification Report (DVR) from the Records Clerk, Ms. Dowell, if they require a paper copy of their Transcript.  Request forms are available in the school office. Please note, Ms. Dowell will need at least four working days notice to generate a DVR. ​
