UCDSB Summer Semester Planning Team

Through the Upper Canada District School Board’s summer learning initiatives, high school students are earning reach-ahead credits online and elementary students are enhancing their knowledge in literacy and math. The UCDSB’s Summer Learning Program and Summer Semester eLearning initiatives are allowing more than 1,400 students to enhance their education over the summer months.

Summer Learning Program
The UCDSB is offering its Summer Learning Program at eight sites throughout the district where students who have completed Grades 1-3 benefit from lessons in non-fiction literacy and mathematics. The three-week program is being offered from July 8 to 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Students enjoy three hours of academic instruction, and one hour of physical activity per day, as well as nutritional support to help them learn.

Participants benefit from more individualized attention than during the school year. With two specially trained teachers in each class and an average class size of only 15 students, the initiative prepares students requiring additional help for the coming school year.

The program is for students requiring support in early literacy and numeracy skills, who might benefit from summer reinforcement.

The program, which has been running in various forms since 2013, generates some impressive results. Students are tested before and after the program, and data shows each student advances at least one reading level and some experience increases of 10 or more levels.

Summer Semester eLearning Program
More than 1,040 students are also benefiting from the UCDSB's Summer Semester eLearning program, operated by the TR Leger School of Adult, Alternative and Continuing Education. The program is offering 37 courses online that students can work on from home, earning a credit over the month of July.

These programs offer students a chance to reach ahead and work ahead to earn an extra credit or lighten their course load for the following year. 

The format of the programming allows our students, as well as International students studying with the UCDSB, to hone their modern learning skills.

This is a unique opportunity to obtain some 21st century learning skills as the foundation of these courses are self-directed learning, problem solving and online collaboration. It an optimal learning environment for students because they’re able to work from their own home.

Summer COOP and Summer Cadet COOP
TR Leger is also offering UCDSB students a Summer Cooperative Education course and aSummer Cadet Cooperative Education course.
