We just want to make sure that parents and students know what the guidelines set out by Alberta Education are for students at this time of change and remote learning.
Teachers at KAHS are working hard to develop online lessons, videos, resources, assignments, etc. to help students learn the necessary content in their courses. We want to set students up for success not only to pass their current courses, but to learn the content so they may be successful in subsequent high school or post-secondary classes and in life.
We are doing our best to communicate with all students and their families at this time of change and uncertainty. We encourage students to be in touch with their teachers if they have ANY questions or concerns. We understand that this style of teaching and learning is not ideal for all students. We are here to help, and we want to hear from you.
The full statement of guidelines from Alberta Education can be found here.
Alberta students should continue to learn while in-school classes are cancelled.
School authorities will offer at-home learning opportunities for all Kindergarten to Grade 12 students online or through accommodations like course packages and telephone check-ins.
Teachers will determine what content to cover based on remaining curricular outcomes and plan tasks that are reasonable to do from home.
We will continue to fund school authorities for the rest of the 2019/20 school year. This will help school authorities deliver at-home learning to their students.
Grades 7 to 9
Education content will focus on core curriculum outcomes of:
- social studies
Teachers will assign an average of 10 hours of work per student per week and must work with students and parents to deliver these materials.
Grades 10 to 12
Education content will focus on specified and core courses required for high school graduation requirements, including:
- language (English, French and French Language Arts)
- social studies
Teachers will deliver content from other courses where possible.
Teachers will assign an average of 3 hours of work per course per week and must work with students and parents to deliver these materials.
