Welcome to the 2020-2021 WRDSB Secondary Distance Learning Program (SDLP). You are parents and caregivers who have chosen Distance Learning for September for your child(ren). We are incredibly excited to welcome students back to our Distance Learning classrooms this year.
Our Distance Learning Program is committed to creating caring and engaging virtual learning environments while also building connections with the students’ home schools.
Our teachers want to know their students, so the Distance Learning program will begin with a focus on building relationships and connecting with students and families. Over the course of the quadmester the SDLP will allow our students to pursue individual learning pathways that reflect their interests, develop skills for the future, and inspire global citizenship.
Having the right tools for Distance Learning is a top priority. Our staff will also help ensure access to the resources needed by the students. Teachers will spend the first days of class ensuring that families have the appropriate and necessary technology and resources, establishing routines and ensuring the students gain familiarity with the WRDSB Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).
We have tried to answer many of the frequently asked questions regarding the Secondary Distance Learning Program (SDLP).
