Surrey Connect is Surrey school district's "distributed" or online learning environment.
Just like students in a conventional neighbourhood school classroom, students at Surrey Connect get ongoing regular assessments, report cards, letter grades and a permanent student record. The only difference is they receive most of their instruction online and do most of their work outside the classroom.
Instruction is directed and supervised by a certified teacher and meeets the standards of the School Act. The key difference between the distrubted and traditional instructional models is in the delivery: online or in person.
Who does Surrey Connect benefit?Any learners who are unable to consistently attend a conventional school classroom. This includes:
Surrey Connect Elementary follows the prescribed learning outcomes of the B.C. curriculum, and their parents work with Surrey Connect teachers to determine suitable grade-appropriate materials and strategies.
