A Learning Community is often organized to increase the amount of time a group of students may spend together with the same instructors or it may be organized around integrating curriculum from two or more courses. This year Grade 10 Learning Communities will meet with the same teacher in Humanities and Math/Science for year long courses. Final grades for these courses and course codes (10-1, 10C) will be assessed all year and assigned in June. This provides the flexibility to allow students to reach the highest course level they are capable of while building year long relationships with their teachers.
Each student is assigned a Connects teacher. Connects occurs primarily on Fridays between period 3 and 4. Students are expected to attend Connects like they would any other class. Attendance is taken during this time. Connects is where students will gain access to a great deal of information around what is happening in the school. Connects teachers also act as the Key Teacher for those students with IPPs. Through Connects, students will also learn about important information around course selection, registration and high school graduation requirements. We try to ensure students have the same teacher for all 3 years at FLHS.
Flex Learning Days
Each semester there will be Flex Learning days when students (in coordination with their teachers) are required to plan their own learning goals and timetable during exams. Students have the opportunity to work with teachers individually or in small groups. It is expected that students take advantage of this opportunity to complete any missed or incomplete work.
First Semester: January 13, 14, 21-24
Second Semester: June 10-11, 17-19
Remember … it is necessary to complete the essential outcomes to receive the minimal grade in a course. The above dates are excellent opportunities to ensure this occurs.
