Surrey Blended: Secondary Transition Program
On August 26th, the Surrey School District shared its plans to safely return to in-class instruction. These plans reflect the measures put forth by provincial health experts and the Ministry of Education and include the important steps our schools will take to safely welcome our students back in September.
We are confident in our plans, but we know that many of our families are nervous. In response to parent feedback and concerns, we will be offering a Secondary Transition Program that will available to all grade 8 and 9 families who are not ready to have their child return to full-time face-to-face instruction when school begins in September.
What is the Secondary Transition Program?
This learning option offers flexibility for families that are unlikely to return to school in September. School staff will work with individual families on plans for transition which may include a delayed start or reduced attendance, with a gradual transition back to full-time in-class instruction
School staff may also discuss options related to online learning, including what is involved, the available courses, and the student's individual educational program and needs. Online learning will be offered through the district's online learning school Surrey Academy of Innovative Learning (SAIL) or possibly their local school.
What does online learning entail for my grades 8 or 9 student?
What is expected of parents who choose online learning?
In this model, students will spend the majority of their time at home, so parents will need to dedicate time for support and guidance.
Is there a transition program available for grades 10, 11, 12?
Yes. The current structure for all students in grades 10-12 includes a blended model of one block face-to-face every morning and one afternoon block online, with a single afternoon of instruction per week. These students can also consider online learning through SAIL.
What are next steps?
The online registration for the Surrey Blended program has now closed. Those still interested in registering are asked to contact their schools to be put on a waitlist subject to availability.
