Welcome to South Peace Distributed Learning



The South Peace Distributed Learning School (SPDLS) is School District #59's Distributed Learning Educator-Led Program which provides curriculum and quality teacher support to parents and students who are looking for alternative ways to complete their education. 

The school provides online curriculum for Grade 10 through Grade 12, as well as Adult Learners. SPDLS also provides home learners with an option within the public school system.  A large number of students currently registered in local high schools look to us for individual online courses.  We have students who travel, compete at a high level in sports, live in remote areas, work, dedicate their lives to music, art or religion, or live alternative lifestyles.  SPDLS allows them freedom to study outside of the traditional 9-3 school system, accelerate learning to complete courses faster, have a high level of parent involvement in the learning, take a smaller course load, or receive credit towards courses for activities they are involved in outside of their school lives.

If you are a motivated student who can commit to learning in this environment, this online option may be just what you're looking for!  SPDLS is happy to be able to offer a wider variety of courses for students this year.  In addition to our selection of basic Math, Science, English and Social Studies courses we also offer courses including but not limited to:



Criminology and Forensic Sciences,

Forestry and Natural Resources,

Health Sciences,

Marine Sciences,

Restaurant Management,


Vet Science,


SPDLS is moving towards providing virtual classrooms, online tutoring, online resources, and onsite course assistance to engage students in self-directed learning. 

Caution:  Distance education courses usually take a minimum of three months to complete.  Most students take five months or more.  It is unrealistic and unfair to expect a student to do a full course in less than that time.  Even when dealing with disciplined, organized, strong students, the simple volume of study makes a shorter period unreasonable.  The courses are made for capable readers with reasonable prior knowledge.  Statistics also show that success rates are poor for students starting distance education courses part way through a school year.
