Parents of identified grade 8 students currently attending S.B.M.S. are invited to attend a Transition Meeting usually during the Month of May or first the part of June.
S.B.M.S. Resource contacts parents of identified grade 8 students to arrange a meeting with M.B.C.I. Resource to take place at S.B.M.S. .
Transition Meeting Agenda can look like the following:
*an opportunity to meet M.B.C.I. Resource
*an opportunity for M.B.C.I. to meet the family and the student
*an opportunity for the family and the student to tell M.B.C.I. Resource about themselves and identify what they hope will be the best way to achieve success at the high school.
*the family and the student will learn about supports offered at the high school to assist the student with:
- daily class work
*ask questions about what to expect at the high school regarding a wide variety of topics:
- types of credits
- how credits are taught at high school
- academic expectations to obtain credits
- academic supports
- current plans to achieve future goals for after high school
- volunteer and work opportunities
The Transition Meeting is a neat way for us all to learn about each other and look forward to the future for grade 8 students starting grade 9.
