Learn more about Regional Learning Choices Programs at upcoming information session
The parent representatives of the We Rise Together Community Advisory Council and the Peel District School Board would like to extend an invitation to parents/guardians of Peel board African, Black, First Nations, Inuit and Métis students to an upcoming information session on Regional Learning Choices Programs (RLCP). The information session will take place virtually on Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2020 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. See below for more information. The Peel District School Board's Regional Learning Choices Programs (RLCP) empowers students by providing them with opportunities to explore their skills in a particular area of interest such as the arts, business, technology, sports, skilled trades and leadership. The board offers 11 different secondary Regional Learning Choices Programs across Brampton, Mississauga and Caledon.
For secondary Regional Programs (grade 9 entry), applications are open on the board's website for current grade 8 students until Nov. 23, 2020 at 3 p.m. Elementary applications (grade 6 entry) will open for current grade 5 students on January 25, 2021. The attached chart contains important dates for your information.
As part of the board's commitment to equity and inclusion, and to address significant disproportionalities in enrollment and equitable representation of African, Black, First Nations, Inuit and Métis students, the RLCP application form will include a new self-identification section. As such, all African, Black, First Nations, Inuit and Métis students who self-identify on the application form and meet the criteria for admission will be accepted into the program without participating in the random selection process.
