Interested in an online option for Kindergarten to grade 9?
How does it work?
Content is available through the online school learning platform. This includes video, images, and paper-based activities. Learning will be a blend of independent paper/online based work that students complete independently and synchronous video lessons. Microsoft Teams will be used as the video conferencing platform for students. There are many opportunities for direct communication with teachers through video, voice, and screen sharing options. Mathematics and English Language Arts classes are major focus areas for our online students. Other subjects are also available in this program.
Parents and caregivers are expected to communicate with online teachers to facilitate access and assist with the online experience and home-based learning activities. Teachers help students set goals and are available to answer questions. Small group sessions are conducted online at different times scheduled by the online teacher.
Activity results and learning projects are shared with the teacher through the online learning platform.

Parents-Please note: when selecting either face-to-face or online schooling for your child please consider committing to one mode or the other. We will do our best to accommodate transfers between schools in the Northern Lights School Division; however, we would ask that if you are considering transferring your child to online learning that you do it at the end of your base school’s reporting period or the start of a semester. If you would like to transfer outside of these times please contact the online school for arrangements. There may be up to a 30 day waiting period for students deciding to switch from online to in school or vice versa after school start-up or during a reporting term.
