INTRODUCTION – What You Need to Know
The B.C. Ministry of Education graduation requires that every B.C. student produce and present a Grad Transition Plan (worth 4 credits) in order to graduate. No exceptions!
First Step: Complete this booklet thoroughly and neatly.
Second Step: Book a 30 minute appointment to review your booklet with Mrs. Hallonquist.
Third Step: After your booklet has been approved, create a "product", i.e. a video, a Prezi, a binder, a scrapbook, a Power Point presentation or a website containing all of the information in this booklet plus a title page.
Fourth Step: Book a 30 minute appointment with Mrs. Hallonquist to have your product approved. Your product must receive final approval two weeks prior to your presenting your product to a two-person panel in an evening setting in the school library. No exceptions can be made.
An important part of the process is adhering to deadlines. It is expected that each Grade 12 student will exercise accountability in completing his/her GTP prior to the stated due dates. Procrastination or avoidance of this responsibility may jeopardize graduation, scholarships and/or bursaries.
