While virtual schools for elementary school students are few, even practically absent from the school landscape, a private school in Candiac has decided to offer entirely remote classes for the start of the September 2021 school year. It plans to obtain its permit from the ministry. of Education in the coming weeks.

“The rapid implementation of distance education in our school in the spring of 2020 went very well. We believe today that this form of teaching can reach some students, and not only for health reasons, and we want to offer them this option, ”indicates Julie Gagné, head of the IT committee of the July Academy, located in Candiac.

Ms. Gagné mentions students whose families move outside the region, but who wish to continue to attend this school. In addition, some students learn better at a distance, without the pressure of the group to learn.

In short, whatever the reason given, students of the 3e year to 6e year of elementary school will be able to attend new virtual school of the Academy from next September. A class of 20 students per level will be open. Students from across Quebec can register. For evaluations, a platform will allow them to be completed online. 

Teachers eager to take on the challenge of online education have volunteered to be the incumbents of these new groups. A schedule from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. is scheduled each day, providing for alternations between online connection and independent or team work. Support periods will also be offered to students on a daily basis.
