Next steps in Home Learning.
The SWSD has given choices to parents, so parents have a say in what type of learning would be best for your family at this time. We completely understand that each family has different needs. In the next couple of days, teachers will be reaching out to families and asking which of the three options you would like to participate in.
1. Students can continue their work on supplemental learning packages (language/literacy, math/numeracy and a cross-curricular approach for others subjects) for the remainder of the year and submit samples of work as directed by their teacher. Updated grades will be reflected on the June, 30 report card, or
2. Students can continue their work on supplemental learning
packages (language/literacy, math/numeracy and a cross-curricular approach for others subjects) for the remainder of the year and opt to not submit samples of work. Their final grades on June 30, 2020 would be the same as their grades on March 13, 2020, or
3. Students can choose NOT to access supplemental learning packages from the school and accept their current grades, as of March 13, 2020. Parents would be responsible for directing learning at home.
We are all learning during this period. None of us, including the school or school division, ever predicted we would be in this situation.
For the most part, teachers are having to work from home, which is certainly not the easiest thing to do. They will be responsible for developing the materials, sending it out, providing feedback (if asked), and communicating with families.
We would ask that if you wish to communicate with your teacher, please do so from 9:00-12:15 and 1:00-3:30. Even if you plan on talking with your teacher regarding the three options, we ask that you still complete this survey by April 2nd:
