Will this be recorded as usual for those who can't join to view later?
Andrea Kelly-Assistant Head of Sr School
20:21
Hello Gordon, yes it is being recorded.
Denali Tran-Le
30:16
Are the two online credits for courses that are designed for online or will it also count for any course taken completly online?
Anjelien Slater
31:00
Any online course will count as online.
Anjelien Slater
31:51
Courses are designated online or in-class.
Clara SONG
32:35
Do we have a guide for first three characters of the course codes? Thank you
Tanuja Vaidya
33:28
If I take an online course outside of Ashbury, will it still be counted into my OSSD?
Anjelien Slater
33:39
These are covered in more detail in the Academic Guide as well. The Academic Guide can be found online. You will find out more about where during this presentation.
Anjelien Slater
34:07
Yes, if the course is designated as an online course, it would count on your transcript.
Donna Naufal Moffatt - Director of University Counselling
34:36
It must be taken at a Ministry accredited school.

34:42
What other online courses are offered at Ashbury other than the BTT? For example, if my daughter did geography online during the summer, would that count?
Andrea Kelly-Assistant Head of Sr School
34:53
Here is a link to the Academic Guide 2020 https://ashbury.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/2020-Academic-Guide.pdf
Donna Naufal Moffatt - Director of University Counselling
36:16
Online courses must be taken at Ministry accredited schools if you are taking a course outside of Ashbury.
Anjelien Slater
36:35
We only have BTT as a fully online course. If the Geography course is offered as a formally designated online course then it would count as well. Currently all of summer courses are being offered face-to-face - we hope. Except the BTT course.
Janet Goodall
37:16
do the community service hours need to be 10 a year? or could you do 8 one year and 12 the next?
Andrea Kelly-Assistant Head of Sr School
37:55
Hello Jane, yes they can be attained over the four years and do not have to be 10 a year.
Anjelien Slater
38:03
The hours just need to add up to the required hours by the time a student graduates. We encourage community service throughout their years.
Janet Goodall
38:19
Thank you.
Tanuja Vaidya
40:22
What is global citizenship? Is it a course?
Anjelien Slater
41:27
Yes, there is a list of courses that would count towards our global studies course. Ie. Grade 12 World Issues, Economics, World History.... amongst more.
Tanuja Vaidya
42:04
Ok, thank you!
shirley
43:18
If Ashbury only has the BTT as an online course, do we have to go to another school to fulfill the other credit for OSSD?
Tanuja Vaidya
43:25
What languages can you take for the language acquisition?
Anjelien Slater
44:36
Students would take the second online course elsewhere. There are many ministry approved schools that offer online courses.
Shannon Howlett
45:02
IB Language Acquisition courses include multiple levels of French from beginner to Immersion level as well as Spanish beginner to advanced.
Gabriela Romero
45:09
Does a student have to take the accelerated math course in grade 10 in order to take the IB route in grade 11? Thx
Anjelien Slater
46:30
No, students in Grade 10 may take the Grade 10 Math course. In Grade 11, we offer a combined course where a student can take Grade 11 and Grade 12 in one year. They achieve two Math credits in one year and remain on track with IB Math.
Shannon Howlett
49:43
Students can also go into IB Math Applications and Interpretations SL from MPM2D . This is the lowest level of IB Math suitable for university programs that would not require math as a prerequisite.
Aline ribas
53:54
Can a student take a course that is part of another school and have it still count towards Ashbury credits / requirements for the summer course?
Anjelien Slater
54:37
If the course is taken at a Ministry approved school, then it will count as a credit.
Clara SONG
56:59
Where do we find the course worksheets? Could you share a link? Thanks
Gary Kay
57:10
to clarify, I thought BTT was only offered in the summer last year? ultimately I thought you don’t have to have online courses?
Bryce Conrad
57:52
Can a student take a grade 11 course instead of a grade 10 elective?
Kathleen Munro Collins - Gr 9 Advisor
57:54
Course worksheets are on the Student portal https://ashbury.ca/student/
Catherine Pound
58:16
who do we send an email to to opt out of 2nd online course again?
Anjelien Slater
58:23
Parent website as well: https://ashbury.ca/parents/
Amina Cherif
58:53
Can you please clarify what options there are for math next year, and what the requirements are to be able to do extended math?
Clara SONG
59:04
Does the school provide the second online course? (not BTT1ON)
Heidi Kutz
59:43
is there any downside to opting out?
Philippe Landry
59:44
is there a list of summer courses offered at Ashbury and is there an additional cost to take it?
Andrea Kelly-Assistant Head of Sr School
01:00:06
https://summer.ashbury.ca/
Kathleen Munro Collins - Gr 9 Advisor
01:00:09
The summer school link for the Ashbury course is at https://summer.ashbury.ca
Maria O’Sullivan
01:04:06
What year can you do IB drama?
Sandy Lin
01:04:10
For Ashbury online course, can Grade 9 student take Grade 11 IB Bio?
Shannon Howlett
01:04:11
The IB offers Math Applications and Interpretations SL which students can enter from MPM2D. This still counts for an IB Diploma but it is not suitable for a university program requiring a math pre-requisite.
Naina Thoppil
01:04:16
Is it possible to aim for both the bilingual and IB diploma? Thank you.
Anda Carabineanu
01:04:35
What percentage of students take the IB option?
Clara SONG
01:04:46
Does the 2 Online courses count as part of the 30 Credits required to graduate?
Kathleen Munro Collins - Gr 9 Advisor
01:04:52
IB Drama begins in Grade 11 as a two year program.
Anjelien Slater
01:04:56
IB Drama would start in Grade 11
YAN Fu
01:05:02
are current courses all considered as online?
Donna Naufal Moffatt - Director of University Counselling
01:05:09
Students in grade 9 can’t take Grade 11 Biology. Prerequisite courses in Grade 10 Science is required.
Shannon Howlett
01:05:16
It becomes challenging to cover both. Students on an Immersion track take two Lang A courses as a full IB student. This qualifies students automatically for an IB bilingual diploma.
Andrea Kelly-Assistant Head of Sr School
01:05:17
Hello Clara, yes the two courses count in the 30 required.
Tanuja Vaidya
01:05:54
My daughter took the BTT1ON course last summer, did it count as a online credit?
Andrea Kelly-Assistant Head of Sr School
01:05:55
Hello Yan Fu, the current courses would not be considered online.
Andrea Kelly-Assistant Head of Sr School
01:06:16
Hello Tanuja, yes the BTT course last summer is an online
Shannon Howlett
01:06:16
Half of our current Gr 11 class is taking the full IB program.
Anjelien Slater
01:06:26
Yes, the online courses would count if from a Ministry approved and inspected school.
Denali Tran-Le
01:06:27
Are all the accelerated courses other than math removed?
YAN Fu
01:06:56
What online courses are available this year?
Anda Carabineanu
01:07:07
Thank you
Andrea Kelly-Assistant Head of Sr School
01:07:59
For now, BTT is the online course offered. The intention is to develop more but this was put on hold this year.
Amina Cherif
01:08:01
Which math (extended or standard) leads you to take an IB math course?
Aline ribas
01:08:36
Does IB include world history or only Canadian history as well?
Anjelien Slater
01:08:53
Both of these courses can lead to IB Math. The path would be slightly different.
Gordon Wilson
01:09:23
Do you know when the school schedule will be available for 21/22?
Sandy Lin
01:09:26
Where is enrich science or English courses?
Donna Naufal Moffatt - Director of University Counselling
01:09:53
Accelerated math means that students will earn MCR3U, a grade 11 credit by the end of Grade 10. This means students will move into grade 12 math in grade 11.
Anjelien Slater
01:09:56
Canadian History is taken in Grade 10. IB World History would be taken in Grade 11.
YAN Fu
01:10:57
when is the course selection sheet distributed?
Anjelien Slater
01:11:54
The worksheets are already available online. They are available to students now.
