Our Board has a long history of providing a wide array of programs to secondary students. There are many pathways to the future through various specialized programs for secondary students. The CDSBEO operates ten secondary schools, with two alternate program sites. We strive to meet the individual needs of each and every student, to promote a successful graduation outcome.
