Saskatoon Public Schools offers online learning for Kindergarten to Grade 12.
Kindergarten to Grade 8 is new this year and students will be using Google Classroom as the learning management system. The Online Learning Centre (OLC) program is different from home schooling and supplemental learning. Kindergarten to Grade 8 students will take all required Saskatchewan curriculum areas of study. Students will be in classrooms by grade and will have a homeroom teacher. Students can expect to connect with their teacher 'live' for about 150 minutes a day, in a combination of large group, small group, and individual online instruction. Grades 9-12 full- or part-time students will choose from over 40 courses to achieve their high school diploma. Grades 9-12 courses are delivered through the Blackboard learning management system.
Virtual OLC classrooms are comparable in size and composition to other live classrooms and will include students from a variety of schools and backgrounds. Online programming will be provided through both synchronous (the teacher online with the students at the same time) and asynchronous (students access course content on their own at any time with the support of a teacher when necessary) delivery systems.
If you have any program questions please call (306) 683-8313 for secondary and (306) 683-7550 for K-8 French Immersion.
