Attendance

Absence / Illness

If a student will be away from their course for any period of time, they must communicate directly with each teacher via private discussions in the specific Brightspace (D2L) course. If a student is too sick to complete any online work for an extended period of time, a message can be sent to CBe-learn via email: cbelearn@cbe.ab.ca. Please include the student's name, course(s) and reason for extended absence.


Grades 1 - 9 (Elementary and Middle School Online)

Online learning provides a unique opportunity for individualized and independent learning. Students are expected to log in to their courses every school day. The CBe-learn Middle School program is in alignment with the CBE’s traditional school year calendar. In general, the school is open weekdays except statutory holidays, Teacher’s Convention and professional development days. Organizational days and professional development days are advertised in the Middle School Homeroom Brightspace (D2L) course.

Live Room Sessions

Students in grades 1 - 9 are required to participate in every Live Room session (the online synchronous communication tool) that is scheduled by teachers. The scheduled class sessions will remain on the same day at the same time for the duration of the year. Live Room sessions are a component of each term mark. If a student cannot attend a scheduled session, in order for the student to be excused, an email message from the parent to the teacher is required.

Participation

Students are expected to participate in the program. Indicators of participation include responding to email/private discussion postings in a timely fashion, contributing to online and Live Room discussions, submitting course work, making presentations or reports and attending mandatory planned functions or events. Attendance at voluntary functions or events is at the discretion of the family.


Grades 10 - 12 (Senior High Online)

Students in the Senior High online program are expected to maintain a regular presence within their online course. Daily work is not mandatory, but is recommended for students to be successful in their work. Students are required to participate in class discussions and group work, and submit all etc.
