Welcome to Grand Erie Virtual Academy
Sago. Good afternoon. This is a message from the Grand Erie District School Board’s Virtual Academy. We would like to take this time to thank you for your patience and support as we work through the process of organizing a new virtual school.
By Friday courses should be available on the BrightSpace platform for your child to enter. There may be some independent on-line work to begin, without teacher support, what we call asynchronous learning.
On Monday, teachers of Week #1 classes will begin to instruct their classes for 220 minutes each day. All students of the Virtual Academy are expected to be online each day, with their teacher, for the prescribed 220 minutes. Students are also expected to spend a further 75 minutes of online time each day to independently complete assigned curriculum expectations. Students should do the following tasks in preparation for the beginning of virtual courses.
Once again, thank you for your patience through these anxious times. We plan to deliver a robust and authentic learning opportunity for your child.
Mr. Dave MacDonald
Mr. Greg Carruthers
