Home Support Update

Home Support at Ballenas – 2020-2021 School Year

 


Home support will be provided by the school to children who remain registered in their school but are at home for reasons of illness or concerns for family health or well-being. There is no minimum amount of time that a child needs to be in the school, but we encourage parents to have children attend as much as they can in order to have children feel connected to the school, the teacher and classmates. In the home support model a parent or family member has significant responsibility for supporting learning at home; however, we hope to provide a staff member that can liaise with your student and the classroom teacher while they are at home. Please note there will be no Zoom or video lessons; however, most of the learning activities and resources will be accessed on-line.

 

Courses in French Immersion will be difficult to support in French as all our Immersion teachers are already teaching a full course load; however, French language resources will be made available. Other courses that are hands on - fine arts and applied skills – or grade 11/12 academic subjects will be difficult to support in this model.

 

Student options for this year are as follows:

 

  1. Full time BSS in classroom cohorts;
  2. Full time CEAP, our Distance Learning School, for students who want to stay home;
  3. Home Support as described above;
  4. Ballenas with a cross-enrolled courses to CEAP.

 

Families who have indicated that they want home support will be contacted by next week, September 21. Questions about programming should be directed to the Counselling office ext. 70722.
