Welcome to Centennial High School
Principal’s Email Sent to Parents January 15, 2015
You are receiving this email because your child wrote Part A of the English Language Arts 30 diploma exam on Tuesday, January 13, 2015. During the writing of this exam, the province’s QuestA+ online diploma exam system was temporarily unable to accommodate the volume of students writing the exam, which may have adversely affected a number of students.
We have been advised by Alberta Education that all students who were impacted by this event are able to apply for an exemption of Part A of this exam. The partial exemption will calculate their final course mark based on their school awarded mark and the Part B, or the reading, part of the diploma exam. If your student would like to rewrite the exam in April or June, all fees will also be waived. Attached please find a Frequently Asked Questions document to help you and your child in making your decision.
If your child would like to be exempt from Part A of the exam, please contact the school at 403.256.8140 no later than Thursday, January 22, 2015.
If you or your child have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Mr. Joe Sturgeon, Assistant Principal in charge of exams, at the school.
Matt Christison, EdD
Principal, Centennial High School
