OCENET is pleased to announce the recent release of a new and updated guide for administrators, guidance counsellors and teachers who work with international students and educators.

The new guidebook, entitled “What You Need to Know About Welcoming and Hosting International Students and Educators: A Guidebook for OCDSB Administrators and Teachers” is 35 pages in length and now addresses both Long-Term students as well as Short-Term and Group Program students and educators who attend or visit OCDSB schools.
This updated and wholly revised edition provides background information on OCENET's goals, its structure, and the types of programs it offers. This resource booklet also provides information on the many ways OCENET serves as the international learning partner for OCDSB schools and outlines the numerous benefits of a school hosting international students and educators.

In addition to providing OCENET and Homestay contact details, there is information on accessing the international student database, timetabling international students, a checklist for helping international students with course selection, and suggestions for ways to encourage international students to get involved in school life. Many other facets of OCENET's roles are addressed in the guidebook. A section entitled “International Student Exchanges for Canadian Students” provides direction on ways to accommodate OCDSB students going on an educational exchange.

A detailed and extensive Table of Contents in the guidebook will assist administrators to quickly reference information they may require.

Both printed copies and pdf versions are available by contacting OCENET.
