Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition Process
Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) is the formal evaluation and credit-granting process whereby students may obtain credits for prior learning. Prior learning includes the knowledge and skills that students have acquired, in both formal and informal ways, outside secondary school. Students may have their knowledge and skills evaluated against the expectations outlined in provincial curriculum policy documents in order to earn credits towards the secondary school diploma.
Final Evaluation Evening: TBD
PLAR applications are due to Central Board Office staff by Feb. 1. Completed applications can be submitted to the home school who will ensure that the applications are received by the appropriate Central Board Office staff. If Feb. 1 falls on a weekend, the due date is the following Monday.
