English term or phrase: guideline
The word appears in the "Transcript Verification Sheets" of a Canadian Secondary School as a heading with squares below to be ticked off. (Other headings are "final mark", "attempted credit", "Earned credit", "course type"...). I would very much appreciate a reply from someone who did their High School in Canda or the US. Thank you kindly!
