student resources

KOOL offers a variety of academic advising and counseling options for our students:

Kindergarten – Grade 7

All of our K-7 students and parents meet with our Elementary Program teacher, Mr. Dave Comrie, upon enrollment with KOOL.  Parents and students are given the opportunity to discuss personalized learning, learning goals, and program requirements.  This initial one-on-one session is used to create the yearly student learning plan and to learn more about the flexibility of the elementary program.  Students and parents will continue to meet with  Mr. Comrie on a regular basis throughout the year.

Middle School – Grade 8-9

Upon enrollment in the KOOL Middle School Program,  all of our Grade 8-9 students and parents meet with our middle school program teacher, Ms. Gail McGee.  This is an opportunity to meet the teacher in a face-to-face environment and to discuss personalized learning, learning goals, and program requirements.  This initial one-on-one session is used to create the yearly student learning plan and to learn more about the flexibility of the middle school program.  Students and parents will continue to meet with Ms. McGee on a regular basis throughout the year.

Senior Students – Grade 10-12

Senior students may choose to cross enroll with KOOL from their home school.  If students are cross-enrolled, their counselor at their home school will be available to advise them on their academic needs.  Full time KOOL senior students will have the opportunity to meet with the Distributed Learning Coordinator, Mrs. Laurel Seafoot upon enrollment and throughout the year.  It is recommended that full time KOOL students set up an appointment to meet with Mrs. Seafoot to ensure that that they are enrolled in the appropriate courses for graduation.  These meetings also provide a time to discuss goals for after graduation as well as the opportunity to discuss the variety of programs offered throughout our district and British Columbia.

Adult Programs

Adult students are able to enroll in KOOL’s Adult Graduation Program.  Upon the completion of your online application, it is recommended that you set up an appointment to meet with the Distributed Learning Coordinator, Mrs. Laurel Seafoot.  This appointment provides you with the opportunity to discuss the adult graduation program and to determine which courses/credits you will need to complete this program.   There are many prior learning experiences that may bring you closer than you think to graduation day, so be sure to book an advising appointment with Mrs. Seafoot.
