Frequently Asked Questions

 REGISTRATION questions
 
 How do I register for a course?

The link to our registration form will be posted on this webpage during the registration period.  Before you register, please review the "What do I need to register" section above.

  • Recent TVDSB students:  you will need your OEN; and a picture/pdf of transcripts for any non-TVDSB courses you may have taken
  • Legacy TVDSB students (pre-2005):  you will need a picture or pdf of transcripts for any non-TVDSB courses you may have taken; and a picture/pdf of a piece of paper with your name, birthdate and the statement "I attended TVDSB schools more than 15 years ago"
  • New to TVDSB students: you will need a picture/pdf of your transcripts; and your OEN if you have previously taken courses in Ontario
  • All students will need an email address that you check daily.  All communications will be done through email.  This CANNOT be a 'gotvdsb.ca' email address
  • All students will need proof of identification and proof of citizenship in a picture or pdf format (birth certificate, passport, immigration/citizenship documents, Health Card (with your number obscured), driver's license, etc.)
 What is an OEN & how do I get one?
OEN = Ontario Education Number.  This number follows you throughout your Ontario education and is NOT your student number.  It is on all report cards and official school documents.  Please email AdultDaySchool@tvdsb.ca with your full legal name, date of birth, and last course you took to obtain your OEN if you don’t know it.
 Can I register if I don't have an OEN?
Yes!  Register as a non-TVDSB student and we will request an OEN for you from the Ministry of Education (you will be required to upload educational documents which show your course history if you register in this manner).
What do I do if the registration form won't accept my OEN?
Double check that you are using your OEN rather than your student number.  OEN’s are 9 digits long (no hyphens or spaces).  If yours is 8 digits, add a 0 to the beginning.   If this still doesn’t work, Please email: AdultStudentServices@tvdsb.ca with your full legal name, date of birth, and request confirmation of your OEN and date of birth on our student information system.
How much do courses cost?

For Canadian citizens, landed immigrants, permanent residents and refugee claimants there is no cost for most courses.  For international citizens living in Ontario on Work or Student Visas, there is a fee for each course (please email AdultStudentServices@tvdsb.ca for information on international student fees).
The Personal Support Worker program and some hairstyling courses have fees - this will be noted on each applicable course.

There are no other deposits or fees required.

 What is a prerequisite?

It is a course which the Ministry of Education has designated as a requirement to be completed prior to undertaking a course.

i.e. you must successfully complete grade 10 applied English before you can take grade 11 college English.
 Can I take more than one course?
 You may take 2 credits per term (2 single credit courses or 1 double credit course).  Each credit is approximately 3 hours of school work per day.
 Can I register if I live outside of Oxford, Elgin or Middlesex Counties?
 Not at this time.
 How can I get a copy of my transcript?

You do not need a transcript to register if you are a former TVDSB student. 

If you have taken courses outside of TVDSB, you must contact that school board for a copy of your transcript or course summary.

If you do need a copy of your transcript and have been a student within the last 12 months, please email AdultDaySchool@tvdsb.ca with your full legal name, date of birth, and last course you took.   If you were a student more than 12 months ago, please see:  www.tvdsb.ca/transcripts 
What courses are available?  What about in my location?
Please see the Course Offering section above.  Format, location, and time are noted.
 I was in ESL.  Can I take courses through Adult Day School?
You must obtain your Canadian Language Benchmark Level 7 (in all areas) to take adult high school credit courses.  To confirm your level, if you have taken ESL through TVDSB, please email: esl@tvdsb.ca 
 I can't do in-school courses.  Can I do it online or only do the only part of an in-school course?
No.  Hybrid courses are 3 days in-school plus 2 days online. Different course material is covered each day.  We cannot change the format (online versus in-school); location; or time of day (morning versus afternoon) of the courses.  
 How do I know if my registration is approved?
As soon as your course is approved, you will receive an email to the address you provided on your registration form.  It will provide you with confirmation of the courses you are approved to take.  You must reply to that email or your registration will not go forward.
 I didn't get an email after I registered, what do I do?
Please check your spam folder.  If there is nothing there, please email: AdultStudentServices@tvdsb.ca with your full legal name, date of birth, your correct email address, and the reason for your email.  
 What if my course doesn't run?
 We will automatically schedule you into one of your alternates if we can.  If we can’t, we will email you.
 How many hours of work do I have to do?
A minimum of 2.75 hours per day (Monday – Friday) for single credit course.  A minimum of 5.5 hours per day for a double credit course.  This does not include homework in senior courses.  Each Term is 8 weeks.
 You're not offering the course I need.  Where can I get it?

Course Descriptions & Prerequisites

 Understanding Course Codes

Reading the first five characters of a course code

The First 3 Characters:  The Course Subject

The subject of the course is identified by the first three characters of the course code. The first character identifies the department area.

For example, in ENG2D, the first letter “E” signifies English. The three letters representing the subject change depending on the course’s content. For example, EBT can be used as a code for an English course that focuses on business and technical communication.

Departments are identified by the first letter of the code:

  •       A = Arts
  •       B = Business
  •       C = Canadian and World Studies
  •       E = English
  •       F = French
  •       G = Guidance and Career Education
  •       H = Humanities and Social Sciences
  •       L = International Languages
  •       M = Mathematics
  •       P = Physical Education
  •       S = Sciences
  •       T = Technology.

The Fourth Character:  Grade Level

The fourth character of the course code identifies the grade level of the course. 1 = grade 9; 2 = grade 10; 3 = grade 11; and 4 = grade 12

For example, ENG2D, the fourth character “2” means this is a grade 10 course

The Fifth Character: 

Course Types: Grades 9 & 10 (Intermediate)

The four codes for grades 9 and 10 signify different types of coursework:

  • D = Academic courses in grades 9 and 10 which cover standard core content for the subject and emphasize theory and conceptual learning. The sample course, ENG2DR, falls under this category. These courses are prerequisites for all streams of senior courses.
  • P = Applied courses focus on the basic concepts, offering content that covers the essentials and concrete applications. Theory is incorporated as needed. These courses are prerequisites for college preparation courses.
  • L = Locally developed courses are designed for students who need some flexibility and support to complete the requirements for subject areas. Locally developed courses help students prepare for further study as well.  These courses are prerequisites for workplace preparation senior courses.
  • O = Open courses in grades 9 to 12 offer equal learning expectations for all students, preparing students for further study or enrichment in the subject matter.

Course Types: Grades 11 & 12 (Senior)

The five codes for grade 11 and 12 signify different types of coursework:

  • C (College) = College preparation courses are designed to prepare students for meeting traditional college entrance requirements. Courses focus on theory, critical thinking, research, and problem-solving skills.
  • E (Everyday) = Workplace preparation courses are geared toward moving students into the workplace or apprenticeship.
  • M (Mixed)= University/College preparation courses offer content relevant to both university and college entrance requirements. Courses cover theory as well as direct application of the content in real-world situations.
  • O (Open) = Open courses in grades 9 to 12 offer equal learning expectations for all students, preparing students for further study or enrichment in the subject matter. Open courses may be required or elective courses.
  • U (University) = University preparation courses prepare students for meeting traditional university entrance requirements. Courses emphasize theory, independent research, and independent learning skills.

The Sixth Character: Course Format

The sixth character denotes the format of the course.  V is for online courses and 2 is for in-school courses offered at Wheable Education Centre in London.

Models of Learning

This year we have two different models of learning:

  1. Online Learning
    • The entire course will take place online using the Ministry of Education’s Virtual Learning Environment called Brightspace.
    • The course will be asynchronous, meaning there are no set times during the day you need to be online. However, you must login to your course daily, Monday to Friday, and complete the work that is assigned for that day by the teacher.
    • You must have access to a reliable computer with an internet connection in order to take an online course.
    • This model of learning will provide you with the most flexibility as to what time you complete your school work with no requirement to be in a school building.
  2. Hybrid Learning (in-school)
    • Monday through Thursday you must be at the designated Adult Day School building to attend your class. You must provide your own transportation to the designated Adult Day School building. The class will either run in the morning from 9:00am to 11:45am or in the afternoon from 12:30pm to 3:15pm. Be sure to check the time and location of the course before registering for the course. You are not able to attend the class online only on these days.
    • On Fridays, the class will be online asynchronous, meaning you do not need to attend the Adult Day School Building (you can work from home) and there are no set times during the day you need to be online. However, you must login to your course, on Friday, and complete the work that is assigned for that day by the teacher.
    • Little, if any, of the course material for in-school days will be provided online. A hybrid course cannot be completed by doing only that work which is provided on online days.
    • The Ministry of Education’s Virtual Learning Environment called Brightspace will be used for the online components of your course.
    • This model of learning will provide you with the most direct access to a teacher as you will see them face-to-face when in the school, but provide you with some flexibility on Friday as you can determine when you will do the school work on those two days.
 Chromebooks

Chromebooks are not available for home use in the 2022-23 school year.

For hybrid courses only, teachers may provide Chromebooks for class time use on in-school days. These Chromebooks may not be taken  home.

Students who need to access a computer may visit the following TVDSB locations to use school computers during normal school hours.  These locations include:

  • Blossom Park Adult Learning Centre, Woodstock, and
  • G.A. Wheable Adult Education Centre, London

All students are encouraged to access other technology options in their community, such as the local public library, should a computing device be necessary.

If you are a client of Ontario Works, please contact them to inquire about what supports may be available to you.

Fanshawe SWAC (School Within A College) CANCELLED FOR TERM 2

The Adult School Within a College (SWAC) program offers non-graduate adult learners the opportunity to take OSSD credit courses taught by a secondary school teacher and a first-year college course taught by college professors/instructors to help them towards their goal of achieving their Ontario Secondary School Diploma. The college course is run through the Dual Credit program so the adult learner will not only achieve a first-year college credit if successful that can be applied towards a college diploma program but also a secondary school elective credit. This program is designed specifically for students looking to achieve the credits needed to apply to post-secondary through participating in a college course and achieving their OSSD courses in a college learning environment.

About Us

About Us

With Adult & Continuing Education (aka Adult Day School) you can complete up to two high school credits in eight weeks. We have four terms in which you may take a maximum of two courses (credits) per term. Each course requires approximately three hours of work per day. Term 2 will run from November 28th - February 3rd.

 

Courses are available for students who wish to complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD); upgrade existing courses for a post-secondary program; take new courses that are required for a post-secondary program; and for learners wishing to acquire new knowledge or skills.

Adult & Continuing Education courses are open to residents of Oxford, Elgin, and Middlesex counties who 18 years of age or older as of the first day of class.

When English is not your first language, we require Ontario course ESLDO or Canadian Language Benchmark level 7 in reading, writing, and speaking in order to proceed with Adult & Continuing Education courses. If you require English as a Second Language (ESL) upgrading, please contact: esl@tvdsb.ca.

There are no fees for TVDSB area residents with the exception of some multi-course certificate programs and on a Student or Work Visa.

While we do not offer IEP's or EA's, our teachers work with students to provide accomodations that will work within fixed term constraints (i.e. extra time for tests, etc.). We have a learning support teacher who can provide assistance for students who qualify for the credit recovery program.

Courses are offered in one of two learning formats: online; and in-school (also known as hybrid). Each term there are approximately 35 course with three quarters online and one quarter hybrid. Available courses change each term. All courses and programs are taught by a Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB) teacher who is available for academic assistance.

In-school courses consist of four days in-class (either morning or afternoon, depending upon the course) plus one day online. In-school days are Monday through Thursday and the online day is Friday. Morning classes are from 9:00 am - 11:45 am and afternoon classes are from 12:30 pm - 3:15 pm. Hybrid courses are offered at the Wheable, London location only. The course materials for In-school and online courses are different - you must participate in all five days of your course. You cannot elect to do only the in-school or only the online portion of the course.

For students who do not have a computer or reliable internet connection, the Blossom Park and Wheable Learning Commons are open on all school days and available to for course work. To learn more about computer options, please see the 'Chromebooks' link on our webpage.

Online courses can be completed at your preferred time of day but you must do course work each workday (approximately 3 hours per day per course). All course material, tests, and assignments are provided through the online learning platform, Brightspace. Teachers are available through Brightspace messaging, Google Meet, or by telephone or in-person appointment. You do not have to come into the Wheable Centre unless you book an in-person meeting with your teacher.

If you are a current or former TVDSB student and would like a listing of your completed courses & graduation requirements, lease provide the following information:

your full legal name
your date of birth
the last school you attended
the last year you attended
one of the last courses you took

Once you are an active, registered student, you are eligible for guidance counsellor services. With a guidance counsellor, you can create a plan to complete your OSSD and/or prepare for a potential post-secondary school path. You may qualify for the Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) program which grants equivalency credits for educational, life, work, and volunteer experience. The PLAR program may reduce the number of elective credits required to graduate. If you are eligible (based on your registration information) we will contact you in the second week of term to begin this process.

For students who are unsure what course to take, and have several credits remaining, we recommend taking a course you are interested in (that you have not taken before) and then make an appointment with a guidance counsellor once term begins.

Registration for term has closed. Registration for term 3 will open on January 11th when we post the link to the registration form on this webpage.  

Please consider subscribing to the webpage. You will receive email notification when registration opens for each term (only 4 emails per year).
