UPDATE: Ministry of Education & Grade 12 Transcripts
As parents may be aware, some BC Grade 12 students may have had incorrect exam results on their final transcripts, caused by an “anomaly” in the tabulation of provincial exams.
The BC Ministry of Education reviewed each June 2019 exam result to ensure student grades are accurately reflected on their transcripts and we are pleased to share that the issue has been resolved.

Sea to Sky School District Sees Huge Increase in Indigenous Graduation Rates – CBC News, June 25, 2018
As the end of the school year approaches and students across the province prepare for graduation, one district in particular is celebrating significant success.
Indigenous students in the Sea to Sky school district had a graduation rate of 86.1 per cent in the 2016-17 school year — up from 35 per cent in 2009.
That’s compared to a provincial average of 66 per cent for Indigenous students.
School District No. 48’s principal of Aboriginal education, Susan Leslie, says the high graduation rate is the result of a district-wide push to restructure their approach to learning.
“This is on every level,” said Leslie. “We’re led as a district by the goals and commitments that we co-created through our strategic plan.”
