Dear Agent Partners -
I am just emailing you with a bit of an update regarding 'distance learning' as it rolls out and to answer a few questions that we are getting of late. I trust that you will forward this to the appropriate people.
Firstly, please be aware that online learning is to be rolled out gradually starting, in most cases, this week. The Ministry of Education and the school boards are recognizing that some families may have three or four children in the house and only one laptop or computer - so online learning needs to be both engaging, but also manageable given the variety of circumstances that families find themselves in.
Once a routine for online learning is set (there is a three week roll out plan - this is the start of week 2) parents can expect the following
• K-1 - up to one hour per day
• Grades 2-3 - up to 90 min each day
• Grades 4 - 7 - up to 2 hours per day
• Grades 8 - 12 - Two hours per week per class (and perhaps more in semestered schools)
Will students in Grade 12 graduate?
Yes, provided the students participate in the learning activities adequately and show that they have completed sufficient learning in their coursework. This includes what they have learned since the courses started, along with the learning they will complete from now until the end of the school year. Mr Thompson and Mr Eichorn will be contacting Grade 12 students this week to reinforce this message. Students NOT PASSING courses in their last report card will need to communicate with their teacher about making up for missed work from before the face-to-face closure of schools. This does not mean that students will graduate 'no matter what'. They need to continue with their learning.
What do I need to do to get a final report card?
Students need to continue with their online/distance programming provided by their teacher. To pass a class, the teachers will asses what the student knows, understands and can demonstrate to determine whether enough learning has taken place to enable the student to meet outcomes and pursue further learning in that area. Students do not get a 'free pass' but have to continue to demonstrate learning.
The case may be different for some elementary school students who have gone home to their own country and are doing studies there. Please contact Ms. Hamilton with your questions.
What should students do if they need assistance, or if they aren't sure they are receiving the proper assignments or communication from teachers?
Instead of students going to their parents, to save time and ensure clear and quick communication, students should be communicating directly with Mr. Eichorn (North End secondary), Mr. Thompson (South End secondary) or Ms. Hamilton (elementary) who can help them. Students have access remotely to their classroom teachers, as well as ELL supports and other learning supports where needed.
Thank you again for your support and patience through these troubling times.
