eSchool

Regina Public Schools is now providing remote learning for the 2020-21 school year. eSchool – Regina Public Schools Online Learning is for students who require an alternative way of learning outside of a school classroom during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Courses are for Kindergarten to Grade 12 students and are specifically designed for learning in an online environment. Each online course will be taught by a teacher who will provide learning resources, activities, assessment, and opportunities for interaction. Because online learning is facilitated through the internet, course materials and activities will be accessible to Regina Public School students as long as a student is currently registered at a Regina Public School, has a device and internet connectivity. However, some learning is also designed to take place offline, in part to avoid excessive screen time. eSchool is administered by Regina Public Schools and there will be no cost to our school families.

Kindergarten to Grade 8 curriculum is available. High school core credits are available; high school elective credits will be offered based on need. Intensive Support programming will be offered.  Elementary French Immersion programming may be available based on student need and available resources.

Students who register for eSchool will be required to commit to remote learning for a designated time frame. Part-time enrolment is not available. Students will have opportunities to return to their home school at natural transition times during school year (end of reporting periods).

General registration for eSchool is facilitated through students’ home school.
