Learning At Home

Welcome to our Learning at Home page!

The buttons below will connect you to Department of Education and Early Childhood Development learning and curriculum websites for students, families, and teachers.

On May 8, 2020, Premier Stephen McNeil announced that students, Pre-Primary to 12, will not return to the classroom this year and that formal learning will end on Friday, June 5, 2020. Click here to read the news release.

LEARNING CONTINUITY PLAN

For an overview of the Learning Continuity Plan for Students, click here.  

Teachers have made contact with families to discuss learning plans for students. Additionally, At-Home Student Learning Packages are being distributed on a bi-weekly basis via Saltwire to homes across Nova Scotia. This is to ensure that families of students in Grades Primary to 9 without access to technology would have what they need. 

At-Home Student Learning Packages are also available here: 

These learning opportunities will not meet the specific needs of every family. The intention is not to replicate school; rather, we are trying to provide students with some meaningful learning opportunities during a public health crisis. If you feel that adding student learning to your family's situation is not possible right now, please reach out to your child's teacher or the school principal. No child will be disadvantaged because of COVID-19. Next year, our teachers and staff will work with students to identify and address any learning gaps.

MARKS, GRADE PROGRESSION AND REPORT CARDS

Highlights of our approach to Assessment include:

  • All students will receive an end of the year report card.
  • Students following an Individual Program Plan will continue to be assessed based on their individual outcomes.
  • Students on-track to graduate will graduate and students on-track to proceed to their next grade level will move to their next grade on time.
  • Teachers and schools will work with students to improve their marks during the pandemic.
  • High school students will be assessed and evaluated on modified coursework that is completed to the best of their ability.

Upcoming dates:

  • Students in Grades Primary-9 will receive a Term Two report card by mid-May. These report cards will be emailed to parents and reflect work that would have been completed up to March 13. Schools will also be in contact with families if an email option is not available.
  • Students in Grades 10-12 will receive interim grades posted in PowerSchool by May 14, 2020.

We know students in Grade 12 have questions about what this situation means for grades, graduation and post-secondary plans. The answers to many of these questions can be found here
