Have you ever said, “I wish there was a course in …”? Do you have interests in areas you can’t currently pursue at your school? If this is the case, then a Special Project Credit (SPC) is the way to go. SPCs reflect learning and skill development that occur in a learner’s life through a multitude of programs and experiences (i.e clubs, sports, training, etc.). This unique credit is individualized and designed by the learner and overseen by a qualified project mentor (typically a coach or instructor) and a designated teacher mentor.
Information about the SPC guidelines and procedure.
Some things to keep in mind
- SPC's must have content that is distinct from any other course offering at the school
- Project mentors must be trained and qualified in the area to be studied
- A final reflective activity will be completed by the student to demonstrate learning
If interested in the SPC or to register in the course, please contact Renee Harrison (email@example.com) with questions, to receive the forms, and to submit the project proposal.
