MFWHSR Collaborative Day, October 5, 2017

The session focuses on the work that has been done in Peace River School District to create learning opportunities for students that do not have access within their own school. It goes through where a video conferencing classroom was set up to now where we have portable units that can move into labs and anywhere in the school to offer programs at different locations and times. We have tested this new technology with Chemistry 30, and will go over some of the pros and cons of the use of Google Hangouts running a class.

Flex Block for Course Completion

Principal Mike Centazzo speaks for the staff at Edwin Parr Composite High School in Athabasca: “We were well aware that some students can accomplish the necessary outcomes in courses at a faster rate than others, while some need additional time and assistance to cover the same material. We wanted to provide the opportunity for all kids to pursue their courses to best serve their individual needs.”

Flex Program

How can a high school let its students have a controlled way to make choices and start taking responsibility for planning their learning opportunities? How can students responsibly explore learning opportunities beyond the set curriculum, perhaps in preparation for a college or university experience?

Students need choice and a greater say in their education,” says Courtney Lawrence of St. Joseph High School in Grande Prairie. “Students need to be able to pursue subjects of interest in more depth or receive additional help for those in which they struggle.”

Four years ago our dropout rate was 4.3 per cent; only 72.4 per cent of our students were completing high school in three years, and Rutherford Scholarships were won by less than 50 per cent of our students,” says Principal Darlene Marcinkevics of Spruce Grove Composite High School. “More and more students were disengaged.”
