UCDSB Remote Learning

Remote Learning for 2021-22

We are offering two digital remote learning options for those families who require remote learning due to concerns related to COVID-19. *There will be no non-digital remote learning options available for the 2021-22 school year.

The remote learning options will be available to students as long as needed, however we expect that most students will only need it for a short period of time and not the duration of the school year.

If your child or youth requires access to remote learning to start the 2021-22 school year, contact your school principal to discuss the remote learning options that meet the needs of your family and are best suited for your child between August 25 and September 1.
 

Elementary Remote Learning

Students who are not able to attend school in-person will be able to study synchronously (in real time) or asynchronously (on their own schedule) from home. In both cases, the student will be part of the regular class at their home school and access digital learning materials that will be provided by the regular classroom teacher. *There will be no non-digital remote learning options available for the 2021-22 school year.


Synchronous Remote Learning for Elementary

Synchronous remote learning will be standardized across all UCDSB elementary schools. Real-time instruction will be provided by the classroom teacher, using audio and/or video on the Microsoft Teams and/or D2L platform.

Synchronous remote learning is not intended for single-day or short-term absences. In these circumstances, teachers will continue to provide students with any work they would have missed while away.

Asynchronous Remote Learning for Elementary

Asynchronous remote emergency learning is a form of learning that is done on the student’s own schedule and at their own pace, without live instruction from a teacher.

The regular classroom teacher will upload instructional materials for students to the Microsoft Teams and/or D2L platform. These materials may be those used during in-person instruction or may be materials centrally developed by the school board, which are not necessarily being used in that class.

Students work independently from home on the provided materials and submit completed work to the teacher via Microsoft Teams for assessment and evaluation.

In the 2021-22 school year, secondary schools will be organized by quadmester from September 2021 to January 2022. Students will take two courses per quadmester: one course in the morning and one course in the afternoon.

Synchronous Remote Learning for Secondary

Synchronous remote learning will be provided by the classroom teacher, using audio and/or video on the Microsoft Teams or D2L platform.

Synchronous remote learning is not intended for single-day or short-term absences. In these circumstances, teachers will continue to provide students with any work they would have missed while away.

Asynchronous Remote Learning for Secondary

Asynchronous remote learning is a form of learning that is done on the student’s own schedule and at their own pace, without live instruction from a teacher.

The teacher will upload instructional materials for students to Microsoft Teams or D2L, whichever digital platform is being used. Students work independently from home on the provided materials and submit completed work to the teacher via Microsoft Teams or D2L for assessment and evaluation.

*In exceptional circumstances, if a student is not able to attend in-person or access digital materials, an alternate short-term remote learning program will be considered. This will be done in consultation with the school and subject to the approval of the Superintendent of Schools.
