Summer School 2022

Edmonton Public Schools is excited to offer summer programming to current Edmonton Public School students or students who will be attending an Edmonton Public School in September 2022.

All courses (with the exception of Physical Education 10) will be delivered online.

We are dedicated to offering high quality summer high school programming!

Let’s get started!

Registration for Summer School 2022 opens on April 25, 2022. Students are encouraged to register at their home school site if the course they want is available, but are able to register at any division site.

Can’t wait to see you (virtually)

All courses (with the exception of Physical Education 10) will be delivered online. Physical Education 10 will be delivered as an onsite, in-person class.

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.
  • 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.
  • 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 courses will be delivered on the G Suite (Google Classroom) platform that most EPSB teachers use for remote delivery.

August diploma exams

At this time Alberta Education is planning to administer diploma exams in August for 30 level classes. Students are required to write the diploma exam to receive a final mark in the course. Students must be available to write the exam in person.

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. 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.

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.

Students who require technology for a summer school class are encouraged to do the following:

  • Current Grade 10 and 11 students returning to the same school in September are advised to ask their home school for a device to use over the summer.
  • Current Grade 9 and Grade 12 students can contact Metro at 780-428-1111 to make arrangements to sign out a device ($100 deposit required).
