The WRDSB is pleased to offer full new credit e-learning courses this summer (June 29th to July 24th). There will be no blended online or face-to-face in-class options available.
Students wishing to register for a summer school course, please see the announcement in the SJAM Guidance Google classroom for more information or CLICK HERE to access the form (must be signed in using your school email).
All students wishing to take summer school should complete this form, whether you:
- Indicated plans to take summer school during course selections in February OR
- Did not initially plan to take summer school, but have now decided to register.
The list of WRDSB summer e-learning courses is provided in the form. This list may be subject to change due to cancellations, etc. and does not include courses that may be offered through other school boards. If you are interested in registering for a course that doesn’t appear in the list, please contact your guidance counsellor.
The Google form is NOT your course registration – this is to provide your guidance counsellor with information to assist with the registration process. Once your counsellor has successfully signed you up for your course, you will receive a confirmation email from the PRISM e-learning registration system.
SUMMER SCHOOL DETAILS:
- Dates – June 29th to July 24th inclusive (excludes weekends/holidays)
- Daily attendance & online participation required (approx. 6 hours/day, plus up to 2 hours/day homework) – NOT the same as distance learning expectations during COVID closures
- Delivered fully online by WRDSB teachers
FORM DEADLINE – Friday, June 5th (please complete ASAP – the longer you wait to confirm or indicate plans to take summer school, the greater the risk courses may be full).
If you have questions regarding summer school, please contact your guidance counsellor.
