Please see the attached news release from Alberta Education updating guidelines on how students will learn while in-school classes are cancelled due to the provincial health emergency.
The Ministry has laid out four guiding principles:
The safety of students and staff comes first.
Student learning will continue.
Provincial funding is still flowing to schools.
School authorities have the flexibility to do what is best for your community.
The release aligns with what St. Paul Education has already been providing to our students with continuing teacher-directed learning.
Also of Note:
Diploma exams have been cancelled
Every student will receive final grades and will receive a report card, appropriate to their grade level. Teachers will be responsible for assessing a student’s progress and assigning a final grade. School authorities have committed to ensuring parents are consulted and kept informed of how the assessment will be determined in this unique circumstance.
All students who were on track to progress to the next grade will. Where possible, schools will work with high school students to complete their courses to the best of their ability, providing a final mark and awarding credits.
If a student is unable to complete a course that would have allowed them to progress to the next grade, principals have the ability to award credits to ensure student progression.
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 in Grade 12 whose program has been negatively impacted by class cancellations. For any courses that are started, schools will complete them with the student to the best of their ability, provide a final mark and award credits.
