Dual Accreditation Pilot Project: In the spring of 2009, Chinook’s Edge School Division received funding to explore dual accreditation programming, allowing students to earn credit toward both college and secondary school diploma/certificate requirements. By the end of the project in 2011 a model for dual accreditation will be developed based on learner pathways for Alberta high schools and post-secondary institutions. This model will include recommendations for funding, program structure and delivery, instructional models, infrastructure considerations, and governance. Panelists from the college and school system will present an overview on the project while the presenter from Alberta Education will share the government’s perspective on this model. All are welcome  * Free Admission  * Refreshments provided
