Application forms may be acquired from a counselor at any of Mid-Dels secondary schools or at the Alternative school site office. The intake process for the program is intended to be both thorough and simple. Because a maximum of 105 students can be enrolled for the high school program it is important that the students admitted are truly in need of the services and are likely to benefit from the programs.
Applicants may be referred by a school professional, a parent/guardian, or by themselves. They must however go through their school counselor to complete certain information on the application. Once the application is received, the student’s academic records are reviewed, and interviews are conducted. The student, his or her parents or guardians, school personnel, and other sources are interviewed. The results of these interviews are discussed among the program’s staff. Those students deemed most appropriate for the program are enrolled, while others remain on the waiting list.
Students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian for the intake interview.
Students under suspension or expulsion may only be referred with the approval of the Director of Ombudsman and Athletic Services.
