• ACADEMIC SANCTIONS

    Other Sanctions

    Attendance and commitment to the Open High School program are additional areas of great importance to student success.  Students who have issues surrounding attendance and/or tardiness or who do not engage in the programming components of Open High School will receive notification of concern.  These students will be referred to the Peer Counseling Group (PCG) which is overseen by the school counselling office at OHS.
