Secondary Summer School Program

All summer school courses will be offered to WRDSB students only that attended a WRDSB school in the 2021-2022 school year only.  All courses will be online and require students to engage in both synchronous and asynchronous learning.  The dates for all summer school courses [full and half credit courses] are July 4th to July 28th, 2022 and Summer co-op are June 29th to July 28th, 2022.

General Information and Student Expectations:

  1. Students may only take ONE Summer School Credit Course.  This can be one full credit course, or two half credit courses (e.g. Civics, Careers).
  2. Students who have a high degree of self-motivation and the ability to work independently are best suited for online/virtual courses.
  3. All course work will need to be completed online. 
  4. Students are required to engage in both synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities.
  5. As in traditional classes, regular attendance is critical for success at summer school. All full credit summer school courses involve a minimum of 110 hours of content and instruction. Students must log in every school day (Monday to Friday) and are expected to spend 6 hours per day on their course, plus additional time for assignments and studying for assessments. All work must be completed and submitted as instructed by the teacher. Students are expected to keep up with the course material, due dates and time commitments each week. Students who do not login to their course regularly risk being removed from the course for failing to meet the requirements.
  6. Vacation or work should be scheduled outside of summer school hours [Summer School hours are 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM]
  7. WRDSB reserves the right to cancel courses if there is insufficient enrolment. Students/parents/legal guardians will be notified by email if the course they registered for is cancelled.
