Within this unique/complex context, the planning that teachers are undertaking will fall within the following general guidelines:
- Kindergarten to Grade 3: planning will focus on language and literacy as well as numeracy from the provincial curriculum. An average of five to seven hours of learning opportunities per student per week.
- Grades 4 to 7: focus on language and literacy and numeracy, as well as an opportunity to incorporate science and social studies through “cross-curricular learning”. An average of seven to ten hours of learning opportunities per student per week.
- Grades 8 to 12: planning will be in relation to all current courses. An average of one to two hours of learning opportunities per course per student per week.
Parents will be hearing directly from their child’s teacher, which will allow for discussion regarding individual student learning beyond these general guidelines. Our goal is to provide our students with engaging, meaningful and manageable learning opportunities.
