Presenters: Art Barron, Manager of Youth Development Services, Mark Mechefske, Dual Credit teacher, Chris Donaldson, Program Development Officer/SCWI Coordinator
The registration and tracking process for dual credit students continues to be a challenge across the province.

The system/process will help streamline an institution’s ability to handle the dynamic nature of these registrations, will improve the registration process for schools, school boards and colleges, reduce redundant inputting of applications, increase data accuracy, manage enrollment numbers, track attendance and give real- time application and data reports. The workshop will provide participants with a glimpse of the systems and the challenges in development of the process.
