November, 2011 The purpose of this survey is to see what courses you might want to take during the 2012-2013 school year. If there is enough interest courses may be offered in your school, in other schools through the magnet concept, or by distance learning.

This concept enables students to have more options, particularly in the Practical and Applied Arts area.
