Alpha group counsellors will review each grade 12 student’s progress in achieving their Alberta High School Diploma or Certificate of Achievement. Counsellors will send administrators a list of students with shortfalls and administrators will issue letters to parents/students. The letters will only be regarding diploma/certificate requirements and are completely separate from participation in the commencement ceremony.
Calculations are based on six academic courses. Courses that are required are as follows:
All students must include:
For any diploma course that has been completed, the blended mark will be used in the calculation. For courses that are still in progress, the current course mark will be used. If a student completed a diploma course at another school, the diploma mark will be used in the calculation and not the blended mark.
The average will be calculated at the end of quarter three, using completed course marks and midterm marks for semester two courses. The valedictorian should also represent Ecole Secondaire Beaumont Composite High School’s core values and be in good standing with the school.
The designation of Salutatorian for the graduating class each year is given to a grade 12 student who excels in the following areas, and is voted for by their peers:
We encourage all parents to talk with their graduands concerning proper conduct during graduation events. Because these are formal programs and we are presenting it to honour those students who are about to reach this initial milestone in their lives, we want to take steps that will ensure that the conduct is consistent with the event. When you are organizing transportation to and from the events, please take steps to ensure that students arrive at the ceremony and banquet without being under the influence of any kind of intoxicants.
Prior to the ceremony, we will have staff helping with the grad line-ups. If we feel a student has consumed alcohol or drugs, we will ask his/her parent(s) to come and have the student sit with them in the audience for the duration of the ceremony. Further disciplinary action will be taken at the school and may include suspension and/or tickets being revoked.
In 1996, the Board of Trustees of Black Gold Regional School Division adopted the following policy concerning alcohol at graduations:
1. The board will not support any legal claim against an employee and/or volunteer who has authorized alcohol at a student activity.
2. No alcohol is to be served or sold at school graduation formals or events.
3. Student activities, whether or not they take place on school grounds, are to be alcohol free.
This policy indicates the minimum penalty for a student who attends a school function under the influence of alcohol or drugs would be a suspension from school for a set period and depending on the seriousness, it could result in suspension from school along with a recommendation to the Board for expulsion.
It is our sincere hope that all participants in the 2021 graduation events will extend their full cooperation with regards to this matter. Through this cooperation, we will take every precaution to ensure that the graduation will be safe and orderly, and that it can continue to be an occasion that graduands, parents, staff and guests can look back on with pride.
We would like to ask all parents of graduands to discuss this matter with their child prior to both events. If there are any questions or concerns, please contact a school administrator.

In order to be considered a full-time student, ESBCHS requires that students adhere to Black Gold School Division’s Administrative Procedure 335 on Student Course Loads which reads as follows:
In order to make optimum use of facilities and resources, high school students are to register in sufficient courses each year in order to allow for graduation within three (3) years.
