PRIOR LEARNING ASSESSMENT AND RECOGNITION (PLAR)

 

Will allow students to challenge and earn up to four (4) credits towards the secondary school diploma, with a maximum of two (2) credits from any one discipline.  This involves two components:  “challenge” and “equivalency”.  Students may challenge a course and be granted credit if they can demonstrate the required skills and knowledge through formal tests and other assessment strategies.  Determining equivalency involves the assessment of credentials from other jurisdictions.  This process will apply to all grade 10 to 12 courses.  The York Catholic District School Board is responsible for its implementation.
