In response to the needs of families navigating the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic, School District 59 (Peace River South) reintroduced a K – 9 Distributed Learning option in September of 2020. The program offers a blend of paper-based and online instruction for K – 3 students and online learning for students in grades 4 – 9.
SD 59 is pleased to announce that the program will continue in September for the 2021 - 2022 school year.
The K – 3 programs, while using paper-based resources, have introduced online resources for mathematics and language arts. Weekly check-ins, read-alouds, and reading assessments using video conferencing (Zoom and Teams) has added a critical element to the programs, providing a virtual connection between the students and the teacher. The grade 4 – 7 programs are also benefiting from similar virtual connections.
