General Summer School Information and Expectations:
- Students may only take ONE Summer School Credit Course. This can be one full credit course, or two half credit courses (e.g. Civics, Careers). Civics and Careers will run on ½ days for the full 18 days, not all day for 9 days, running in both the morning and the afternoon.
- Students who have a high degree of self-motivation and the ability to work independently are best suited for online/virtual courses.
- All course work will need to be completed online.
- As in traditional classes, regular attendance is critical for success at summer school. All full credit summer school courses involve a minimum of 110 hours of content and instruction. Students must log in every school day (Monday to Friday) and are expected to spend 5.5 hours per day on their course, plus additional time for assignments and studying for tests and exams. All work must be completed and submitted as instructed by the teacher. Students are expected to keep up with the course material, due dates and time commitments each week. Students who do not login to their course regularly risk being removed from the course for failing to meet the requirements.
- WRDSB reserves the right to cancel courses if there is insufficient enrolment. Students/parents/legal guardians will be notified by email if the course they registered for is canceled.
