Our Commitment to Truth and Reconciliation
Chinook Learning Services is committed to acknowledging and supporting the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action specific to education. In 2021, our school, along with all Calgary Board of Education schools made a TRC Commitment to Action. On June 21, 2022, we renewed our commitment:

High School Upgrading

Chinook is the largest High School Upgrading centre in Alberta, serving thousands of part-time students annually. Students come to Chinook to complete, upgrade or enhance their high school diplomas as they prepare to enter post-secondary institutions or the world of work. Chinook offers morning, afternoon and evening classes, multiple intakes, and specialized programs to allow students flexibility in achieving their goals.

School Development Plan
Alberta Education requires each school to create a plan to improve student learning. The School Development Plan aligns individual school goals with the identified goals in CBE Education Plan | 2021 - 2024. Each year, schools capture evidence of continuous improvement towards the goals set.

Identity Statements
The following identity statements emerged through staff engagement and discussion. They encapsulate the philosophical/educational underpinnings of High School Upgrading.

Continuing Education

Professional Development courses are offered in the following areas: computer training, finance, interpersonal skills, school-based training and writing & workplace skills.
