Secondary Years Grades 9 to 12 Remote Learning
Secondary Years Grades 9-12 Remote Learning Schedule
For remote learning, students will follow their Day 4 rotation schedule and their four block daily schedule:
- Student Advisory will be integrated into the remote learning model
- Emphasis as always will be on learning the Ontario curriculum within the IB MYP and DP frameworks
- Student learning will be assessed remotely following similar timelines as in a regular year
Hybrid Schedule (including lunch timings/cafeteria use)
- If CDNIS is approved to bring small groups of students on to campus (e.g. half the number of students as we saw last spring), we will transition to a hybrid model that blends remote learning and on-site learning for that year group.
- Students will be divided into two groups (“red” & white”), with each group coming to school following a rotating cycle: the red group will attend in person for four straight days while the white group attends remotely; then the white group will attend in person for 4 days while red attends classes remotely. The reason for the 4-day rotation is that a number of our OSSD credit courses are timetabled to meet only once every four days. To do a simple “one day on campus/ one day remote learning” sequence as we will do with G6-8 would mean that some students would never meet their teacher on campus.
Sample two-week Hybrid Model Rotation for Grades 9-12
- Instead of preparing online-specific lessons, teachers will lead live lessons in their classroom, broadcasting that lesson live for students at home to follow in real time. These lessons will not be recorded.
- In order to ensure social distancing and hygienic lunch spaces, we will alter the daily timetable slightly. This will allow us to separate students into small groups during lunch times.
- Students will be assigned to “Lunch 1” or “Lunch 2” groups, and have quiet time in a supervised study hall during the other group’s time in the cafeterias. As more year groups return to campus, we will utilize both the 6/F and 12/F cafeterias to ensure small groups of diners and safe social distancing.
- Student Advisory will be integrated into this hybrid model.
- Emphasis will continue to be on learning the Ontario curriculum within the IB MYP and DP frameworks, with continuous learning whether students are home or at school.
- Student learning will be assessed both using online and on-site methodologies. For example, students at home may be asked to work independently while students in class are taking a test, knowing that they will take an assessment task of commensurate challenge during their own four-day cycle on campus.
