Finish the remaining list of subjects in a similar manner.


We recommend that you use the A – H subject headings from the notification form in order to make it easy for the district office to confirm all subjects have been covered for the year. The List of Resources can be placed on a separate sheet of paper or included under each subject area in the Outline of Intended Curriculum. It is not advisable to include the grade for the material. Also, resources don’t have to be textbooks, or even books at all. For instance: museums, parks, YMCA membership/classes, private music lessons, participation in community sports can all be a part of your planned resources.

If you have any questions regarding this part of the notification process – CHEO is always happy to assist you. Please feel free to call anyone on our leadership team or call our office staff if you have questions. We also encourage families not to “copy and paste” Brief Outlines placed on social media platforms for notification use. Make sure that the outline you submit reflects the personal plan that you have for your family.
