It has been two weeks since the announcement was made to close schools across the province indefinitely, and both parents and students have been anxious to hear the next steps for continued learning.
On March. 20, Education Minister Adriana LaGrange announced the government's expectations for student learning and School Board chair for Rocky View Schools Fiona Gilbert announced that RVS was working towards a continuity plan to meet those expectations.
Rocky View Schools has since released tier one of their learning continuity plan for students from kindergarten to grade twelve.
RVS says that their focus is to prioritize the content with what is manageable for students and parents working from home.
Teachers will be reaching out this week via e-mail to provide details around the digital communication and learning platforms to be used in their classes as well as the hours they will be available to provide support.
Starting on Monday, March 30th, teachers will be e-mailing weekly learning plans with specific tasks and activities along with weekly suggestions for physical literacy activities.
The second tier, is for students in grades 10-12 with option courses and will be launched on April 6.
