Full Credit eLearning Courses

Half Credit eLearning Courses

CHV2O - Civics and Citizenship
GLC2O - Career Studies
BOTH of these courses are run during the first two week period of summer school from Thursday July 2, 2020 to Wednesday July 15, 2020, and both run again during the second two week period of summer school from Thursday July 16, 2020 to Tuesday July 28, 2020.

General Information and Expectations
  1. Students may only take ONE Summer School Credit Course, regardless of the mode of delivery. This can be one full credit course, or two half credit courses (e.g. Civics, Careers).
  2. Students who have a high degree of self-motivation and the ability to work independently are best suited for eLearning courses.
  3. Students must have access to a computer/device and must also have reliable internet access for the full duration of their eLearning course; all course work will need to be completed online.
  4. As in traditional classes, regular attendance in eLearning is critical for success at summer school. Students must log in every school day (Monday to Friday) and are expected to spend 5.5 hours per day on their eLearning course, plus additional time for assignments and studying for tests and exams. All work must be completed and submitted as instructed by the eLearning 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 eLearning course regularly risk being removed from the course for failing to meet the requirements.
  5. International Students who are currently required to pay International Fees to attend regular day school will also be required to pay a fee to attend Summer School. This fee must be paid prior to registering for a summer eLearning course. See details under Registration Information below.
  6. TVDSB 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 cancelled.
  7. Summer eLearning students are expected to adhere to the standard rules of academic integrity, the same as expected of students in a classroom setting. It is recommended that students read the entire Summer School Code of Conduct.
