Students will be dropped from a course when a student has not become active in a course within 3 weeks of registering. Evidence of activity includes dated examples of student work, assessment data, and teacher gradebook or other tracking system entries. These entries reflect student engagement in a significant portion of the program.
If a student has fallen behind or not completed enough of their course to be successful a teacher will attempt to re-engage the student 3 times. If unsuccessful, students will be withdrawn from the course.
Students will not be permitted to carryover courses in the summer – they will need to either complete by the end of the school year or withdraw from the course. If they withdraw, they are not able to re-register in a DL course until 2 funding periods have passed.
If you are a student enrolled in a grade 8-12 course, it is likely that you will need to write a test for your course. It is expected that tests/exams in Grade 10-12 courses will be invigilated to maintain the integrity of our program. We have resumed face-to-face testing wherever possible for grade 10-12 courses. Cross-enrolled students should make arrangements to complete their tests/exams with the DL teacher at their home school.
Please note that it is mandatory for students to contact their subject teacher in order to arrange for approval test invigilation (both for site and supervision) and for test passwords to be sent to the supervisor.
Credits can be earned from prior learning by challenging a course that has been approved by the Ministry or Education or is a Board Approved Authorized Course.
