Supplementary Learning Frequently Asked Questions: 

 1- What will happen to my child's assignments that were unmarked before March 13th? 

Teachers have been instructed by Prairie South School Division to not use MSS for entering grades for the time being.  This means that, as students turn in supplemental material/work, parents should not expect to see updated marks or changes to the grades in the live MSS environment for the time being.  Until such time as we are advised how teachers will be recording any new improvement to the marks, MSS will only the display marks as of March 13th

2- What are the options for those students taking the Supplemental Learning Plan? 

Students can participate in the supplemental work that is offered without risking the mark that they already have.  They can choose to try to improve the mark but will never go below the mark they had on the 13th. 

    • If a student has 100 % on March 13th – that is their mark
    • If a student has 63% on March 13th-  that is their mark  
    • If a student has 43% on March 13th- they will automatically get 50%

Students are given two options with the SLP. 

  • Students can choose to only do formative work and receive feedback but no evaluation.
  • Students can choose to do work and attempt to improve the mark to the end of the year or when ever they decided to quit.

Students must indicate to their teacher which of these options they are choosing to do. 

3- I do not have access to a computer. What should I do? 

The school has a few laptops that we are willing to loan out for those people who do not have access to a computer at home. Please contact your teacher for more info on this.  

4- Why should my child continue on with supplemental learning when they already have a final grade? 

The supplemental learning allows for students to continue with content in their courses they have not covered and to improve their overall mark in the course.  The supplemental learning is essentially a ‘win win’ situation for our students.  There is no risk to lowering any of their marks.  They can only improve from their automatic 50% or go up from their March 13th mark, whichever mark is greater.  The supplementary work is added to the March 13th data, therefore, over the course of time, the student may raise their mark and choose to discontinue when they are satisfied with the improved mark.  Or a student may choose to discontinue with attempting to raise the mark, but continue with supplemental learning and receive feedback from the teacher on their work.  At all times, it is extremely important that students are communicating their intentions with their teachers directly so there is no confusion with what they want evaluated in addition to their March 13th mark or their 50%.

5- Are students required to take all of the classes being offered for their grade? 

Students can choose to do as little or as much work as they wish to do.  Supplemental learning is about continuing to engage students in learning, to continue to prepare them for their schooling next year and encouraging them to do whatever they can do.  They can choose to discontinue with the supplemental learning at any time.  However, they need to communicate their decision with their teacher of their intentions to discontinue.

6- If my child initially opts out of Supplemental Learning, can they change their mind and join in again at a later time? 

If a student has chosen not to continue with supplemental learning and changes their mind down the road and wish to join, they may, at any time, request to join in the supplemental learning.  They must contact their teacher DIRECTLY and advise them of their decision to join in and get started.

7- Who do I contact if I have specific questions about my child's specific assignments or marks during the SLP? 

If parents or students have questions regarding specific assignments or marks, they should be contacting their child’s teachers DIRECTLY as many answers to your questions may be at the professional judgement of the teacher.

8- What happens if school is able to start up again? Will my child be at a disadvantage if they do not take part in the Supplemental Learning Plan? 

If school is able to resume at any point in time within our building, supplemental learning will continue.  Students may be at different places in their supplemental learning but students will continue with learning from where they are at and teachers will continue to work with students from where they are at.  We will follow all protocols and processes that the Ministry of Education outlines should students be allowed back in the building before the end of the school year.

9- What will happen to my child's Driver's Education remaining in cars etc?  

Drivers Education 10 has only been postponed.  It will resume as soon as Mr. Thomas has been advised that it is safe to do so.  Any questions you have regarding Drivers Education, written exams, in car lessons, etc. should be communicated with Mr. Thomas directly.  His preferred method of communication is TEXT only at (306) 630-5058.

10- Which courses will not be included in the Supplementary Learning Plan at CCS?

Choir 9-30, Visual Arts 9-30, Band 9-30, Woods and Motors 10-30, Entrepreneurship 30, CWEX 10-30, Phys Ed 9-20/30, Arts Ed 9,  Food Studies 10/30, Practical and Applies Arts 9-30. 

11- Is Christian Ethics class going to be offered in the Supplementary Learning Plan?

We will be offering CE in all grades as one of our priorities as a Christian School and would hope that students would continue with this course through the supplemental learning option. 

Please contact the CCS office via phone or email  if you have any other questions that have not been asked in this list.
