Distance Education

SRSB Distance Education Expectations
 
Attendance of a student is essential as with a regular classroom course. Attendance can not easily be monitored, so daily contact by the student with the teacher is required.

Changes in course registration must be done within the first six day cycle.

The school contact teacher will ensure that the students have access to a computer and encourage students to work diligently on their courses. If contacted by the instructor regarding a student's work, the school contact teacher will meet with the student to discuss the teacher's concerns. If the student has difficulty with the software the contact teachers can assist the student to contact the NSVS Help Desk.

The time spent working on the course each day is the duration of one semestered class plus time at home (off-line). Students can expect to spend as much time working at home as they normally would for a course which they are taking in the classroom. There will be off-line activities such as reading assignments, planning and drafting responses.
