Important Parent Information Re: English 30-1 and 30-2 Diploma Exam Part A

**Update From Alberta Education
I have received the following updated information about option 2, the partial exemption. The following has been confirmed by Alberta Education:
For a partial exemption, the final mark calculation will be:   

  • 50% school-mark 

  •  25% Part B

  •  25% Partial exemption mark that is calculated based on the school-awarded mark and the mark from the January 20 Part B: Reading part of the examination. That calculation also considers these two marks relative to the marks of all other students in the province.

If the student chooses the partial exemption and would like to re-write instead, they can do so at no cost. They could only rewrite one part, if desired.
Again, if your student is considering a partial exemption they must let me know by
9:00 am January 19th.

JR Robson is a “Nut Aware” School.
We currently have a number of students who have severe life-threatening allergies to nuts and nut products. Please DO NOT bring nuts, peanut butter or nut products, or other foods containing these products to school. Although this may inconvenience some families, it could mean the difference between life and death for others. We appreciate your cooperation in helping to maintain the safety for all students at JR Robson.
