Clarification from the Ministry of Education
- Independent schools can award students secondary school credit for college courses, as per the dual credit section of this policy: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/
content/education-training/k- 12/administration/legislation- policy/public-schools/earning- credit-through-equivalency- challenge-external- credentials-post-secondary- credit-and-independent- directed-studies.
- Independent schools are also able to claim per-course funding for students participating in college courses, assuming those students and courses are eligible, as per this policy: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/
content/education-training/k- 12/administration/legislation- policy/public-schools/ recognition-of-post-secondary- transition-programs-for- funding-purposes. However, there are two important qualifiers here. First, the different types or groups of independent schools receive per course funding based on a percentage, such as 50 or 35, of the local school district’s rate. Second, independent schools can claim for funding a maximum of eight courses (i.e. 1.0 FTE) per student.
- There’s nothing to prevent independent schools from charging parents for post‑secondary tuition when students take a dual credit course that is ineligible for Ministry funding.
