For humanitarian reasons or to avoid serious harm to a student, the institution may, following a request, with reasons, made by the parents of the student or by the student, if of full age, exempt the student from the application of a provision of the basic school regulation. In the case of an exemption from the rules governing certification of studies referred to in section 460 of the Education Act (chapter I-13.3), the institution must apply therefor to the Minister.
The institution may also, subject to the rules governing certification of studies prescribed by the basic school regulation, permit a departure from a provision of the basic school regulation so that a special school project may be carried out. In the case of a departure from the list of subjects, the institution must obtain the authorization of the Minister in accordance with section 459 of the Education Act.
In addition, the provisions of the basic school regulation concerning exemptions or exceptions shall apply to private educational institutions.
Furthermore, the institution may, subject to the rules on certification of studies prescribed in the basic school regulation and to the by-laws of the Catholic committee or Protestant committee established by the Act respecting the Conseil supérieur de l’éducation (chapter C-60), exempt from a subject prescribed in the basic school regulation a student who needs support in the programs relating to the language of instruction, a second language or mathematics; the student cannot be exempted, however, from any of these programs.
