How it will work

Read on for further details on how summer school will work.

The details

  • Curriculum delivery of 5-credit courses will follow a rigorous 19-day schedule. Students will be accountable to attend their online class and engage in a variety of learning activities for approximately 3-4 hours per day.
  • The expectation is that student cameras are on during synchronous activities to foster active participation and community building.
  • Classes will start at 9am each day with a live lesson. The remainder of the day will include live connection points with a teacher, as well as time for students to work on their own. Additional tasks will need to be completed outside of the scheduled time.
    • CALM courses will follow the same format, but will run on a 9-day schedule.
    • Physical Education 10 will be run in person, also on a 9-day schedule.
  • Teachers will provide engaging, curriculum-based lessons that require students to be actively participating in their learning for the duration of the day.
  • Daily attendance and participation is required and students who do not demonstrate consistent attendance will be removed from the course. Summer School is a fast-paced experience filled with rich and engaging opportunities.
  • Summer School courses will be delivered on the G Suite (Google Classroom) platform.

August diploma exams

Students are required to write diploma exams in all 30-level courses. Students must be available to write the exam in person on the scheduled dates.

Location: Harry Ainlay School

The course line-up

Students are limited to one 5-credit course or two 3-credit courses, and are encouraged to enroll in a course they feel is an area of strength. The online platform and short timeline of summer school can present further challenges to learning.

Grade 9 students

Grade 9 students planning to take Physical Education 10 or CALM are advised to complete both courses, as they are each 9-day courses. Many Division high schools schedule these courses together and there may be limited opportunities to register in either course separately during the regular school year. If a student only does one through summer school, they will need to pick up the other during the regular school year.

Grade 9 students registering in core courses are advised to choose a subject where they feel confident and have demonstrated past success. Metro will be reviewing all registrations to ensure students are in a course that will offer a pathway to success.


Technology requirements

To complete a summer school course, students will require internet access and access to a computer (laptop, Chromebook or desktop) with a working microphone and camera (either built-in or external). Tablets and cell phones are not recommended as they cannot support the programs students are required to use.

Students will be required to engage in video conferencing with their teacher and classmates, as well as complete assignments, projects and assessments through their computer.

If you currently attend a high school, please speak with your school site about borrowing technology. If you are not currently attending a high school, please contact Metro to discuss these possibilities.
