PRSD finalizes At-home Learning Plan
Peace River School Division (PRSD) has finalized it’s At-home Learning Plan and invites families who have not already contacted Superintendent, Dr. Bennett, and who wish to register for at-home learning to call their local school to enrol by 2 pm on September 4, 2020.
At-home learning will be delivered at the child’s school by the classroom teacher(s) in sync with the timing of regular classroom instruction via Google Classroom. This model allows students to stay connected with teachers and students they are familiar with. If families require a technology device, it will be provided from the school.
Hours for at-home learning are as follows:
Kindergarten: 5 half days per week, delivered online by a certified PRSD teacher.
Grades 1-3: 2 hours per day (1 hour for literacy, 1 hour for numeracy and integrated instruction in mental health and wellness).
Grades 4-6: 3 hours per day (1 hour for literacy, 1 hour for numeracy, 1 hour for social studies and science with integrated instruction in mental health and wellness).
Grades 7-9: 4 hours per day (1 hour for math, 1 hour for language arts, 1 hour for social studies,1 hour for science with integrated instruction in mental health and wellness).
Grades 10-12: Students will be provided with live synchronized learning based on required courses for their individual student program plan.
