Importance of the Student Handbook:
It is the responsibility of the student to read and understand the requirements of being a funded Post-Secondary student. Within the Student Handbook, students can fully understand the important deadlines for funding, the documentation requirements for a complete application, the appeals process, and the student categories. All of this information is necessary for a successful smooth educational journey with the team at the School Board.
If there are any questions regarding the handbook check out the Frequently asked questions page and feel free to contact Jaimie Teagle for further information.
