OCDSB Learn At Home

Some things parents should know about the OCDSB Learn At Home strategy are:

  • Age and Grade Appropriate – Everything is based on the age and grade of the student, including hours of work, focus areas, use of technology and communication;
  • Hours of Work - The number of hours of learning per week is reduced and includes the total amount of time for instruction and student work;
  • Focused - Not every subject will be taught in elementary; in secondary and elementary teachers will focus on key concepts;
  • Instruction – Instruction is teacher-led with resources to support learning, and tasks/assignments for students;
  • Technology - Instruction will happen electronically and could include Google classroom, Google Meets/Hangouts, Google Sites, and our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), teacher websites and email or phone calls as appropriate; 
  • Supported – Resources and supports are available for families including access to technology, online learning resourcesspecial education resources, professional services. Speak with your principal for support.
  • Culturally Relevant and Responsive - Students have access to learning resources where they see themselves and their families represented and reflected. 
  • Assessment – All students, Kindergarten to Grade 12, will receive final report cards at the end of the school year. Students graduating from grade 12 this year will receive mid-year marks for semester 2.
