It is my pleasure to introduce the course selection booklet for our secondary schools in the Renfrew County District School Board. The secondary school years are exciting times, and I'm extremely proud of the range of programs and services our schools provide to our students. As you can see by turning the pages of this document, we've created pathways and opportunities for students who intend on graduating from secondary school to enter the workforce or to continue their education at a college or university. Regardless of your plans beyond secondary school, your education is an investment in your future, and it is important to make sure you take the time to understand what pathways are offered to you and how to make the most out of your secondary school experience. Over the past few years, several new initiatives have improved our secondary school experience and should be highlighted as they are referenced in this document. These include our Student Success Strategy, Specialist High Skills Majors, Cooperative Education, Dual Credit Program, Special Education Programs, New Transition Programs, and Student Engagement. In addition, the RCDSB has invested heavily into new technologies, eLearning, blended learning, and character education. In closing, I would like to reference our mission statement - "the RCDSB works together to create outstanding educational experiences that honour the uniqueness of each individual." This sets a high bar for us all and I'm confident our schools will rise to the occasion and provide each of you with an education worth remembering!
