Students will be expected to:

We will not be able to accommodate requests to transition back and forth between brick and mortar school instruction and online instruction. Should you express interest and register if the program does run, your child will be registered for the full academic year for online instruction with the option of returning to a brick and mortar school at the end of January.

Assessment in Live Online

Students’ level of performance in each subject area will be determined based on:

  • Daily demonstration of learning (formative assessment)
  • Learning exemplars shared online
  • Portfolio exemplars submitted to the teacher
  • Summative assessments of key learning outcomes - portfolio, quizzing, oral or written assessments
  • Celebrations of Learning

Reporting will be shared with parents through email by the classroom teacher.

Mrs. Christensen always lent me a listening ear and would always help to grow my understanding of subjects outside of what she taught. It is because of these three teachers in particular that I chose to pursue education.
