WVS Semester System
In West Vancouver Schools, the secondary schools are currently operating in a Semester System. Students complete four courses in each of two semesters (September to January & February to June). X-Block periods are built into this schedule to provide students the opportunity to pursue personalized training (Tuesday & Thursday from 12:35 pm – 3:00 pm).
In the Semester System schedule, there will be the opportunity for students in Grades 10-12 to apply to the Pursuit Program, and request to use one of their four blocks for training purposes. If eligible students apply and are accepted into the Pursuit Program, the periods that would be available outside of X-Block (Tuesday & Thursday afternoon) are Monday afternoon (last period), Wednesday morning (first period) & Friday afternoon (last period).
Students, Grades 8 & 9 will continue to use the X-Block periods, Tuesday & Thursday afternoons, from 12:35 pm – 3:00 pm all year long.
