Parents have the right to register a student in a distributed learning program as outlined in Sections 12 and 13 of the School Act. Distributed learning programs are offered by both public school districts and independent schools and allow students to pursue their education at home.
Students from Kindergarten to Grade 7 are considered to be full-time students in the distributed learning school. Such students may take a school course after the school Principal reaches an agreement with the principal of the distributed learning program to share the student’s funding.
Students from Grade 8 to Grade 12 can be cross-enrolled. The student may be registered in the district and take one or more courses from the distributed learning program. The student may also be registered in the distributed learning program and take one or more courses from the school district. Funding is provided for each course in which the student becomes active.
