Returning to school after spring break is set to look very different for Wolf Creek Public Schools this year.

Details on lesson and assignments are continued to be developed and schools will be communicating those details to families before the end of spring break, March 30.

In continuing student learning this year, teachers of pre-kindergarten to Grade 12 will be offering at-home learning opportunities to students either through online means or through other accommodations.

According to the WCPS statement, these accommodations can include course packages, web-based connections and telephone check-ins.

“Wolf Creek has a strong background of utilizing digital tools on a regular basis to assist with learning and we have been in contact with our families to determine what additional supports might be necessary at home to support online learning, said Vince Burke, communications coordinator for WCPS, in an email.

Upon returning from spring break “teachers will evaluate curricular outcomes that have not yet been covered, prioritize remaining outcomes based on what is manageable for students working from home, and will plan specific tasks and projects for students.”

The Wolf Creek Learning Support Plan discussed with school administrators on March 19 aligns well with the guidelines released by Alberta Education on March 20.

The guidelines from the government were developed to identify how teacher-directed learning could occur across Alberta during the provincial health emergency, but each school board was provided with the flexibility required to meet the needs of their students.

As per WCPS’ statement content delivery for each grade level is as follows:

Pre-Kindergarten: Bright Futures Play Academy students will be provided with optional learning opportunities through communication with the teacher. While classes are cancelled there will be no requirement to participate as well as no fees.

Kindergarten to Grade 3: Education will focus on language/literacy and mathematics/numeracy outcomes of the provincial curriculum. Teachers will assign an average of five hours of work per week per student, and will be expected to work with their students and parents on the delivery of these materials.

Grades 4-6: Education content will continue to focus on language/literacy and mathematics/numeracy outcomes. Opportunities to incorporate science and social studies through cross-curricular learning may arise at times. An average of five hours of work per week will be assigned to each student with teachers being expected to work with students and parents to deliver these materials.

Grades 7-9: Education content will focus on core mathematics, language/literacy, science and social studies curriculum outcomes. Teachers will be expected to work with their students and parents to deliver these materials as well as assign an average of 10 hours of work per week.

Grades 10-12: Education content will focus on specified and core courses required for high school graduation requirements, including language (English, French and French language arts), social studies, mathematics and sciences (biology, chemistry and physics).

Content from other courses, such as Career Technology Studies, will be delivered where possible and accommodations for students unable to complete courses will be made.

The provincial statement states Grades 10-12 will be assigned an average of three hours of work per course per week.

It also says all students will receive final grades and progress to their appropriate grade level in the following school year.

Grade 12 students on track to receive 100 or more credits will still be eligible to graduate and receive a high school diploma. Principals have the ability to award up to 15 credits to students who are in courses they are unable to complete.

As of March 24, the board was still reviewing all events planned for the remainder of the school year, including the graduation ceremonies.

“We know that graduation is an important and special time for a student and for their family,” said Burke. “The decision will be made based on the best information and directives from Alberta Health Services and in alignment with Alberta Education.”

All Grade 12 diploma exams are cancelled, but students can request to write a diploma exam under special circumstances.

Additionally, all Grade 6 and 9 provincial achievement tests are cancelled.

在疫情过后,海外留学、求职更加趋于理性;每个人都会更深地思考世界以及个人未来的发展。以创新为本的企业,如苹果及特斯拉,不仅仅使用科技改变了人类的生活,也用其直面挑战,敢为人先的精神激励着我们去突破自我。越来越多的学生与家长将进入苹果等开创型企业工作视为职业生涯的目标,同时也意识到STEM及其他未来社会发展亟需的专业(而非文科、商科等传统专业)才是海外求学的核心价值。这篇报道阐述了苹果公司在开发新能源汽车过程中经历的蛰伏、他们的解决方案以及颠覆传统汽车制造业的锋芒,也启发着有志于前往海外以改变人生轨迹的学子——他们应该选择哪一个奔跑方向。如果苹果公司(Apple Inc.)想要在汽车项目上取得成功,它就必须瞄准价值2,300亿美元的豪华汽车市场。这样做可能是让投资者满意的唯一方法。但要想取代梅赛德斯-奔驰(Mercedes-Benz)等拥有125年历史的老牌汽车制造商并非易事。路透社(Reu...

(前加拿大移民难民公民部部长、现任家庭儿童及社会发展部部长Ahmed Hussen说,联邦政府想要建立每个家庭经济上能够承担,并且惠及更多人的国家儿童保育系统)《CBC新闻》报道:负责政府推动儿童保育的联邦部长表示,减少家长支付的费用是自由党计划建立全国儿童保育系统的关键因素。家庭儿童及社会发展部部长艾哈迈德·胡森(Ahmed Hussen)在接受加拿大媒体采访时表示,同样重要的是,在全加拿大范围内为有需要的父母增加负担得起的日托场所的数量。他说,他在与已经建立了本国儿童保育系统的国家同行交谈时提到了这两个问题。Hussen说,降低费用和增加学位可能需要大量的联邦资金。他补充说,政府预计,一旦疫情最终结束,日托所的高需求还会增加。Hussen说:“我们必须共同努力,大幅度降低学费,使家长更能负担得起,但我们也必须确保增加学位。”“否则,即使我们会让日托变得更便宜,但只能针对那些有...
