Summer School runs July 2-July 31, 2018 (Diploma exams start August 1)
Figuring out time required to complete a summer course? Summer School will require students to spend as much time learning in the compressed four week period as they would spend in the classroom during the semester. the general rule of thumb is a 5 credit course requires 125 hours. Students have one month to complete the course. They should plan to be working on the course 5 hours a day if they plan to work weekdays and less if they pan to work weekdays and weekends. See our time calculator and tables to calculate how much time you need to commit, depending if it is a 1,3, or 5 credit courses.
Getting Online Orientation: Please note that the Getting Online course is required for all students who have not completed this 3 credit online orientation. This prepares the students for learning how to be successful online and is a required prerequisite for all online courses. Our data shows us that students successfully complete after 14-16 log ins who spend an hour or more with each log in. If students log in every day and work for an hour they can complete this course in two weeks. (Students who take longer, interestingly enough still log in between 14-16 times but spread their completion time over a longer period of time). This course must be completed by July 3, 2018. You can log into tiny.cc/pbbliveonline for help and live instruction
No courses will be added to a student registration after July 3 for summer completion.

Second Semester Deadlines:
Please note that courses need to be completed within one acadmic year of the student’s start date. These deadlines mean that all assignments and exams must be submitted on or before the date.
Diploma Courses: June 1, 2018
Non-diploma Courses: June 8, 2018
Consequently students must not assume they can continue into the summer semester unless the students re-registers for the summer semester. If students do not re-register for summer, and are not completed a course, marks will be reported incomplete to Alberta Education and will show on the student transcript.
Please be in touch with your teacher(s) directly before this date if you have questions or concerns.
Diploma Registration for Diploma Courses:
All students registered in a diploma course must fill out the Diploma Registration form to indicate when they plan to write their diploma exam throughout their course. It is the student’s responsibility to edit their response should their intentions change. Please note the registration deadline for August is July 4, 2017.
Diploma writing sites in the summer include SAIT in Calgary, and Victoria Park School in Lethbridge. Other writing centres are listed here. You may have to call the site to ensure that they have a seat open for you.
Students who have previously written the diploma are now required to register themselves to rewrite the diploma and pay the rewrite fee ($26.25) using MyPass.
Accommodations must be coordinated with your subject teacher well in advance and put in place as part of your instructional plan.
