STATEMENT OF POLICY
The Niagara Catholic District School Board recognizes and accepts its role in providing quality Catholic education programs in the field of Adult and Continuing Education.
It is also important for our elementary and secondary students to have the opportunity to obtain credits and/or remedial instruction and International Languages to assist newcomers to our country to realize their aspirations in Canada.
Our community and society as a whole benefits when opportunities are provided for adults to complete their high school graduation diploma, improve their literacy skills or obtain new skills for life and career.
Staff will continue to actively pursue cooperation with local and government agencies that share our desire and responsibility to provide these services.
All of our programs and services in Adult and Continuing Education will be presented within the framework of our Catholic mission.
