Summer Secondary Program
Summer School courses are 55-hour remedial courses or upgrading courses.
Secondary students must have completed the course during the current academic year to attend Summer School.
There will be no new credits through Summer School except through Summer Co-op, e-Learning and for students wishing to take the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course (OSSLC).
Courses offered in Summer School include English, math, science, history, geography, civics and careers.
Courses will run subject to sufficient enrolment and teacher availability.
Students will be contacted once course scheduling is determined for Periods 1 and Period 2.
The program will commence on Monday, July 5, 2021 and run through to Wednesday, August 4, 2021.
During the first seven days of the program, Period 1 classes will run from 8 am to 10:30 am and Period 2 classes from 10:45 am to 1:15 pm. Class times will change on the eighth day – Wednesday, July 14, 2021 – until the end of Summer School and run from 8:30 am to 10:30 am and 10:45 am to 12:45 pm.
Students must have access to a computer and the Internet in the event there are public health restrictions that require a pivot to remote learning.
If courses switch to remote then students will work 2.5 hours per day in a combination of synchronous (online video chat together as a group) and asynchronous (independently with teacher support) learning that will be determined by the teacher and communicated to the students.
Secondary Summer School will take place at Sudbury Secondary, Adult Day School and is open to all students from both public and separate schools.
