Going to High School - Virtual Information Session

The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board is hosting the Going to High School information night on April 28, 2022, 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. This virtual conference, organized by OCDSB’s Innovation and Adolescent Learning team, will provide details about the transition from Grade 8 to high school. 

Students and families will discover the curriculum and subject areas available to all incoming grade 9 students. Instructional coaches will be facilitating 15-minute presentations, allowing students/families time to ‘visit’ various subject areas. The move to destreamed curriculum will be presented to address some of the questions we have received from our parent community, helping to alleviate some of the anxieties about this important transition for our students.  

Some sessions will be offered in multiple languages, including Farsi/Arabic, Somali/Arabic, Arabic, Mandarin/Cantonese.  Additional sessions related to Link Crew, Mental health and wellness, Indigenous, Equity and 2SLGTBQ+ supports are also offered, with many more. All workshops can be seen by viewing the Going to High School website.

Event Details
This event is being organized using an online platform called vFAIRS that will allow participants to visit a plenary hall, exhibitors’ hall and seminar rooms, as they would if this were in-person. They can choose sessions in advance, and log in to find the information and hear the stories that they are looking for. The structure allows them to personalize their experience. They can choose to participate in all, or only parts of the day.
