b) Drop off at any LRSD School Office.
How many credits can I take? While you can receive credit for up to 10 credits in the summer, we recommend taking a maximum of one 5 credit-core class (English Language Arts/Social Studies/Math/Science) and potentially one option class in order to set yourself up for success.
What is the format of summer school classes? All course content will be posted on our Hapara (online learning) platform. Students may choose to complete the course in a fully online format and interact with their teacher daily via Google Meet. Alternatively, they may choose to attend school in Fort Macleod for face-to-face interactions with their teachers (this could be 1-5 days a week). Content can be accessed asynchronously for students needing a flexible schedule.
How much work will I need to complete each day? Given the compressed time frame of the course, students will be expected to complete at least one hour of work per day per credit. For example, if they are taking a 5-credit English course, they would need to spend about 5 hours per day on their class.
What is my schedule? The summer teachers will be available for support during regular school hours and will have a daily Google Meet for each class. However, we recognize that some students may need a flexible schedule and so content can be accessed at any time.
Please use the form if you have any questions or comments about LRSD Pursuits Summer school. We look forward to hearing for you!
