Rainbow Schools offer many opportunities to earn new credits this summer
Rainbow District School Board will offer many opportunities for students to earn new credits towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma this summer, including Summer School Co-op, e-Learning and the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course (OSSLC).
Summer School Co-operative Education
Students can earn one or two new virtual co-op credits this summer by enrolling in the online Co-op course DCO3O. Face-to-face Co-op credits may be available based on Public Health guidelines. If you have an in-person Co-op placement arranged for the summer, please contact your school’s guidance office to discuss requirements.
Students wishing to obtain one or two credits must register for the session from Thursday, July 2, 2020 to Friday, July 31, 2020.
To ensure the proper course codes are applied, all students registering for Summer Co-op must include a credit counselling summary from their current school.
If face-to-face placements become an option, students are responsible for providing their own transportation to their placements.
Summer e-Learning Program
Secondary students can obtain one new Grade 11 or 12 credit in English, math, geography, law, science, social science, Aboriginal or Canadian and World Studies through the Summer e-Learning Program. Grade 10 civics and careers courses are also available.
Courses will run from Thursday, July 2, 2020 to Friday, July 31, 2020. Students will require a reliable computer with Internet access to enrol in the Summer e-Learning Program.
Students must register no later than Friday, June 19, 2020 with a guidance counsellor using the Ministry of Education’s Seat Reservation System.
