Summer School with the London District Catholic School Board offers many opportunities. Students can choose from classes that are done in-class at school, eLearning courses with teacher assistance at school once a week during summer school, or co-op classes for those who would like learn on the job while applying it to their current courses. There are also travel courses where students can earn a credit while travelling to different cities, such as Ottawa, Montreal and New York and even one that travels to Italy. Through Summer School, students will have the opportunity to meet new friends, prepare for life after high school and learn something new.

New Credit: On-line Information

On-line learning offers a lot of flexibility but requires a high level of discipline and commitment on the part of the students to be successful. If students cannot be online on a weekday, they will need to commit the time on a weekend day or increase the time online on other days.
 
An on-line E-learning video can be found on the Summer School Web Site or at: http://www.ldcsb.ca/Students/ELearning/Pages/default.aspx. Students must log in on July 2, 2020 to remain in the course.

A Message to Students:
 
On-line courses allow students to log in from any computer connected to the Internet. There is generally no specific time to be logged in to the e-Learning site. This provides students with the flexibility to organize their time and schedule. However, they should expect to spend a minimum of 2-4 hours online per day, plus additional time to complete assignment work. Three critical skills for online learning are: highly developed time management skills, independent work skills and organizational skills. The following personal qualities are also essential: perseverance and self-discipline. On-line teachers will provide their students with additional tips to assist them when navigating on-line learning.

Keep in Mind:
  • As with regular courses, assignments will have dates by which they must be submitted.
  • Students are expected to contribute to discussion groups in a timely manner and submit assignments as laid out in the course information.
  • The teacher can track student activity and postings. This allows the teacher to verify student postings and assignment submissions.
  • All assignments submitted are stored in the e-Learning site. This is the confirmation of receipt - time and date stamped.
  • On-line etiquette is expected. If a student’s computer activity is not appropriate, they may be removed from the course.

All registration confirmations will be sent either by email or phone call using the contact information provided on the registration form. Please ensure the email address provided on the registration form is accurate and legible. Students must log in on before July 2, 2020 to remain in the course. Confirmation of course registration will begin May 20, 2020.

Please be aware that it is academic fraud when a student has anyone else do their coursework. If concern is raised about a student’s performance related to validity of their on-line work, the final mark will be held until the student can attend a meeting with the instructor and demonstrate that they have indeed completed the coursework independently.
 
 

New Credit: On-site

Due to the compressed instructional time, onsite courses require a high level of discipline and commitment on the part of the students to be successful. Students need to be able to manage both 6 hours of daily instruction and the after-school time required to complete homework and assignments during the 19 school days of summer school.

Terms and Conditions of Summer School Enrolment:
  • The pace and volume of work at summer school is demanding. Students should expect daily homework, as well as tests, quizzes and assignments each
    week. The timeline for assignments cannot be extended for any students due to the short timeframe of summer school.
  • Course Enrolment: Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis with the fax time stamp as the method used to determine placement priority.
  • Textbooks: A refundable book deposit of $100.00 is required if a text is used. Provide a cheque for $100.00, made payable to the “Centre for Lifelong Learning”, to the teacher on first day of summer school. Your cheque will be returned once the text(s) are returned in good condition.
  • Final examinations are compulsory for on-site new credits in Summer School and must be written on Thursday, July 25, 2019. There are no exceptions to this policy.
  • Examination: Final examinations are compulsory for on-site new credits in Summer School and must be written on Thursday, July 27, 2020. There are no exceptions to this policy. On Friday, July 28, 2020 from 8-10 A.M., students can meet with their teachers to view their marks. Failure to attend forfeits student’s ability to review exam/mark results. 
  • Attendance: Students who do not arrive to class by 8:30 a.m. on the first day may be removed from the course due to possible wait lists.
    • 100% attendance is expected. Students must be punctual and must attend everyday. If for serious reasons, as approved by the summer school site principal, a student must be absent, the limit is 3 days. More than 3 days absence will result in the automatic removal of the student from the course.
 
All registration confirmations will be sent either by email or phone call. Ensure the email address provided on the registration form is accurate and legible. For online courses, students must log in on before July 2, 2020 to remain in the course. Confirmation of course registration will begin May 20, 2020.

Please be aware that it is academic fraud when a student has anyone else do his or her coursework. If concern is raised about a student’s performance related to validity of his or her on-line work, the final mark will be held until the student can attend a meeting with the instructor and demonstrate that he or she has indeed completed the coursework independently
