PERSONALIZED EDUCATION PROGRAM (PEP) *** Refreshed for Sept. 2021 ***

NOTE: Grade 9 Included for 2021-2022 School year!

This is a Teacher Directed Home-based (distance) Learning opportunity for students from grades 1 - 9. Teachers work closely with the parent(s) to ensure that the student is receiving a full Alberta education.

We have updated significant portions of our PEP program for the 2021-2022 school year.  This brochure explains program basics, included updated expectations for weekly and monthly class attendance, and changes to the way school resources are made available to students.
