Effective September 1, 2011, CCRSB is implementing the Nova Scotia High School Credit Attendance Pilot in grades 10 to 12. This a two-year pilot, running from September 1, 2011 to June 30, 2013, where a high school student may lose eligibility to be granted credit for a course if he/she is not present in class for at least 80% of the course.
