Course Activation Policy

Activation Evidence in place by Sept. 30th (1st submission), Feb. 10 (2nd submission) or May 1 (3rd submission).

1. Parent/student agreement to the learning plan must be documented in each student’s plan tab by the submission dates (either Sept. 30, Feb. 10 or May 1).

2. Courses must be activated in compliance with Ministry expectations. Activation learning evidence is required in this process and Ministry funding cannot be released unless this requirement is met.  This evidence must be documented in the planner with a dated tangible sample of learning available in the notes. The sample must be marked by the teacher and assessment linked to the learning outcomes for that course.  The requirement looks different for K-7, 8-9, and High School, therefore take note of the details below.     

 K-7 – plan agreement by Sept. 30th- activation assignments in place before Oct. 15 (if coming in for the full year)

The student must be engaged in a significant amount of their courses before activation is possible. This is evidenced by learning notes in a minimum of 4 courses and a tangible sample of learning from at least two core subject: English, Math, Socials, or Science.  

8-9 – plan agreement by Sept. 30th- activation assignments in place before Oct. 15 (if coming in for the full year)

The student must be engaged in a significant amount of their course work before activation is possible. This is evidenced by a tangible sample of learning from at least 4 courses.  We highly recommend all core subjects be included but non-core subjects may be part of the equation if the student has semester timing happening. 

K-9 activation evidence must be:

  • tangible/printable
  • dated in the planner notes
  • teacher directed & marked
  • linked to course outcomes 

High School  – plan agreement in place before courses are started – courses will not start until…

Students must have a course selection documented in their plan.

For each course there must be a course plan or outline in place – indicating resources, assignments, timing goals, etc...

The student must be engaged in a significant amount of learning for each fundable course evidenced by a minimum tangible sample of learning that covers 5% of the learning outcomes for each individual course. 

    High School activation evidence must be: 

  • tangible/printable
  • dated in the planner notes
  • teacher directed

marked & linked to course outcomes
