Tracey Sweetapple ~ Assistant Principal

Tracey Sweetapple joined the administrative team at W.H. Croxford in the fall of 2016 after serving for ten enriching years as a School Counsellor at Bert Church High School. Her career has spanned two decades, four school districts and a variety of roles such as Classroom Teacher (Provincial School for the Deaf, Burnaby) Learning Support (Vernon Secondary School), and Program Specialist (Calgary Board of Education). Her mantra is, "Flexibility is the greatest invitation to learning." Being at Croxford is a reunion of extended RVS family and Tracey is still pinching herself that she gets to be part of this amazing community!

~Work Place Learning~HCS3000~HCS3010~AGR3000~Registered Apprenticeship Program

Currently I am supporting students who are interested in Work Place Learning (WPL) to earn credits for graduation. Credits may be counted at Grade 10, 11, or 12.  Only 15 credits may be used towards the requirements for the Alberta High School Diploma.

You may learn more about the requirements for graduation and Work Place Learning by watching this video, Get Graduated.

Students who require HCS3000 (the pre-requisite course needed for WPL) will need to complete their course work online through Safety in Schools.   Please email me if you need this single credit course and I will enrol you.  The scope and sequence of the mini-courses (which equal HCS3000, HCS3010 and AGR3000) can be viewed in this document.

Contracts for Work Place Learning may be picked up in the main office.  Students must submit thoroughly completed contracts and site inspections must be done before students may begin earning credits.

Time sheets may also be collected in the main office.  Every 25 hours worked, whether at a paid or volunteer position, will equal one credit.  Time sheets must be submitted weekly.

REGISTERED APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM

Please follow the steps outlined in this link. https://alis.alberta.ca/explore-education-and-training/learn-about-apprenticeship/apprenticeship-in-alberta


Step #3 is the one you'll have to pay close attention to.

Students are responsible for finding their own placement with an employer who will indenture them.  Once a student has a placement, and a Blue Book, hours for the apprenticeship begin - but the student needs to have the Blue Book (outlined in the above link).  Site inspections and contract, similar to Work Place Learning, must also be completed in order for the student to be registered in the appropriate course work for RAP

 

 

Parent Tips

I encourage parents/guardians to be actively involved in their youth's school life.  I believe when parents and teachers work together, youth can be successful in their learning.

  • Please visit powerschool bi-weekly so that you are up to date with your youth's assignments, class schedule/timelines, attendance, and marks.
  • Consider downloading the free PowerSchool App on your phone.  When synched with your account, you will have incredibly easy access to information.  Use the district code QMCD.
  • PowerSchool Parent Tech Support
