CORNER BROOK — The Western School District has started a program in Corner Brook aimed at people who have left the school system.
Eugene May, education officer for student support services with the board, said the goal of the Pathfinder Learning Program is to aid people in obtaining their high school diploma.
May said the program is for students who, for whatever reason, have not had success in the regular school environment.
“They just can’t seem to get their high school finished in the normal fashion,” May said.
He said the Pathfinder Learning Program allows them to complete the required credits through a computer delivery system in a classroom environment at the board’s S.D. Cook Building.
The program is offered in conjunction with Corner Brook Regional High and is geared towards students who have been out of school for a while.
However, May said in unique circumstances the program can be offered to current students at the high school.
The students attend the program Monday to Friday during regular school hours and the board has two teachers, one full-time and one half-time.
