Attention Students – taking courses at other educational institutions

It has come to our attention recently that there are a growing number of Pearson students who are taking courses with other educational institutions outside of the CBE. Examples of these institutions are Alberta Distance Learning Commission (ADLC), and Hope Christian School.

If you are one of these students, or know someone who is, please be aware of the following expectations:


  1. If a student is taking a grade 12 (30 level) course with an institution such as those above and they want to write their final exams for those courses as Pearson, those students will need to come to the main office ASAP to inform the office of your intentions so that we can discover how many extra spaces we will need to accommodate the demand.


There is a limit to the number of students that we can have writing exams at Pearson based on the number of actual seats that we have in the examination rooms, and the number of supervisors that we have. We also need to ensure that Alberta Education sends us enough exams to cover the number of students who will be here on exam day to write the exams.


  1. Students taking courses at these institutions also need to know that you are not permitted to use Pearson resources such as textbooks while registered in courses at other institutions. There are barely enough resources and textbooks for students at Pearson, that we can’t justify loaning out textbooks to students not in courses at our school.


  1. There have also been students who have been enrolled in classes at an outside institution as well as at Pearson. As the semester progresses, some students are withdrawing from their course at Pearson and then continuing to sit in the classroom at Pearson with their teachers. Teachers are not permitted to allow you to sit in their classes if you are not on their attendance list. Teachers cannot be made responsible for students not on their attendance list.
