AT HOME Student Learning Framework … during “Physical Isolation”

This is an unprecedented time for us as a staff and as a school, as a board and as a province there is a great deal to consider as we try to move to teacher-led distance learning for the foreseeable future. All levels are aware that there is much to consider and many variables at play – equity being just one of many. Over the next two weeks we will be working with staff towards teacher-led distance learning. At the end of the two weeks we hope to have a more formal understanding of the expectations for teacher-led learning and assessment from the Ministry of Education. 

As directed by the Ministry and School Boards, we are providing you with the 2 key resources offered to support at this time. You will find them helpful so that our students may participate in some great learning moments and/or challenges over these next 2 weeks. As stated, a more formal plan is being worked on at the Ministry Level to begin April 6th and beyond. Please understand that you are not expected to engage your child in all of the activities provided below but rather set aside a little time each day to use these resources as you see fit and as we create new routines in our households during this time of “physical isolation.” Again, the 2 key resources provided at this time are directly linked below: #STEAMDays AND Learn at Home.
