Can I switch to Digital Learning?

How do I complete courses like PE and Foods?
Every course is a little different when it comes to satisfying the curriculum. For courses like PE, a student follows a physical activity schedule and has a parent sign off on the completed hours of activity. For a course such as Foods, a student will have to complete cooking assignments from home and send photos and other relevant information as evidence of completing the task.
What happens when I am absent from courses?
If a student misses 3 consecutive blended classes or four weeks of digital correspondence without a valid reason, the student will be put on attendance probation and will have to discuss the matter with the Vice-Principal. All absences are to be notified by a parent/guardian by email or calling the office at 604-590-5504. 24-hours notice is required for any absences related to doctor appointments or other valid reasons.
What happens if I fall behind in coursework?
Students who fall behind will be emailed iAlerts to let the student and the parents know that the coursework is not being completed with enough urgency.
Should I start in Blended Learning or Digital Learning?
Students who are new to online learning are recommended to start with a Blended Learning (BL) course to help maintain a weekly schedule and to familiarize themselves with the learning environment before enrolling in a Digital Learning (DL) course.
Both my boys are very happy attending iLearn Secondary School. The teachers attract the kids and push them to understand more. My sons had very little experience with technology before attending iLearn, and now they feel compelled to teach me what they are learning. My boys feel so secure at iLearn that they both wouldn’t go to any other school. The change in concentration and commitment throughout their high school has helped them prepare for what they want to do after graduation.
