  • What are Licensing and Technology Fees

    Digital Licensing and Courses Technology Fees include:

    We try very hard to keep our resources to open education resources that do not require third party providers and licensing. Our teachers provide the bulk of our course instructional materials. There are some tools we require to maintain the excellent teaching and learning community we provide for students:

    - moodle plug ins for student tracking and completion, and hosting services

    - Blackboard licensing for live instruction

    - browser lock down services for exam invigilation

    - anti plagiarism software 

    - course licensing for web parts that require interactive flash, and interactive, video lessons

    - digital text books for which we can not source open education resources. We try to develop course's that do not rely on licensed text books. We have however some language courses that require the e-text because we can source interactive web tools through the digital license to ensure we are addressing learning outcomes

    Fees for Canadian students enrolling for online courses at Palliser Beyond Borders are below, and depend upon factors including student’s age, residency, and whether the student is already attending another school in Palliser Regional Schools.

    Our refund policy:

    Course Fees- There are no refunds on course fees because the licensing is determined by access to the online tools. Once access is made we can not refund the technology fees.

  • Waived Fees

    If payment in full is not possible, the school can accommodate payment plans to suit all circumstances. In cases of extreme hardship, parents/students may not be able to pay the license and technology fee with no expectation of future payments later in the school year. In such cases, the school Administration may be able to petition for a "waiver of school fees"  

    For more information, please contact your local Palliser Beyond Borders campus.

Honestly, it is very rare to have teachers who reply really fast and that's like one of the best qualities about an online teacher. Thank you so much for being an amazing teacher and thank you very much.

Student, grade 12
