APRIL 30, 2020 -- Regina Public Schools and school divisions across the province are encouraging students to re-engage with learning while schools and classrooms are closed during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The #TakeBackYourYear campaign invites teachers, staff, students, families, and community members to share the hashtag on social media along with their own stories of success and encouragement for one another during these challenging and uncertain times.
The campaign will include information, and encouragement for students and families to continue with their learning through school division supplemental learning plans.
Teacher-directed supplemental learning for students and staff was launched at Regina Public Schools in April, and since then, educators and administrators have been connecting with families and students to determine individual learning needs and to develop course work to support ongoing learning.
Supplemental learning offers students a chance to improve their school grades, without the risk of their final mark going down. The learning schedule, lessons, and course work are flexible to accommodate the needs of each family and student. Teachers are ready and able to provide support.
Re-engaging and staying engaged with teacher-directed learning right now will help with a smooth transition to a student's future – whether that's a return to the classroom, post-secondary learning, or the workforce after high school. Supplemental learning is also a positive way for students to stay in contact with classmates and friends.
Students and families who originally opted out of supplemental learning are encouraged to reach out to their teacher or school if they have further questions.
