Student Expecations

Students intending to register need to be aware of the following:

  • Course content is delivered online; paper copies are not available.
  • Students need to have the appropriate hardware to connect and learn online. (A strong internet connection and a desktop or laptop computer)
  • Success in online courses relies heavily on the ability to self-start and self-motivate as a learner.

Attendance will be reported once per week. Being marks absent means that the student has not been attending to learning for the entire week. Attendance to learning with PBB means:

  • Completing assigned learning tasks regularly
  • Connecting to learning resources regularly¬†
  • Connecting to teachers at least weekly via live sessions, individual appointments, or electronic communication (email or chat) of an academic nature

Students who have previously demonstrated a lack of attendance to learning with PBB or with their home school may not have their registration request for classes with PBB accepted.

I have to tell you how impressed he was with how quickly his teachers responded to his questions. The technology worked great and he valued the opportunity to experience online learning. He did say he missed working with his friends, but he now knows he can learn online successfully. Yesterday, we finally received his Grade 10 schedule, and thanks to his completion of CALM, he can access one of the electives he really wanted. His schedule had additional flexibility thanks to Palliser Beyond Borders! Thank you all for your efforts. When I showed my son what his schedule could look like, he was genuinely excited about the coming year.
