Health & Wellness in School Scenario 3 - At-Home Learning

Scenario 3 - At-Home Learning

​​​​​The province announced on July 21 that all schools in the province will re-open under Scenario 1.

Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, health officials will work with school authorities to make the decision whether to transition to partial in-class learning (Scenario 2​) or at-home learning (Scenario 3) based on multiple factors including the number of COVID-19 cases in a community or a school and the risk of ongoing transmission.

Any changes in the school re-entry scenario will be determined by Alberta Health/Alberta Health Services with information on local school-based and community information. We will remain in communication with public health authorities and will continue to follow their advice.

During this scenario:

  • All school authorities will offer at-home learning opportunities to their children and students.
  • For the 2020-21 school year the following instructional hours are minimums and local school authorities have the flexibility to increase hours beyond these minimums in delivering the content for all grades:

ECS-Grade 3

  • Focus on language and mathematics learning outcomes that strengthen the development of literacy and numeracy
  • Incorporate health curriculum outcomes (with a focus on mental health)
  • Average of five hours of work per child or student per week

Grades 4-6

  • Focus on language and mathematics learning outcomes that strengthen the development of literacy and numeracy
  • Incorporate science, social studies and wellness (with a focus on mental health) curriculum outcomes
  • Average of six to eight hours of work per student per week

Grades 7-9

  • Focus on core mathematics, language/literacy, science, social studies and wellness (with a focus on physical and mental health) curriculum outcomes
  • Average of 12 to 16 hours of work per student per week

Grades 10-12

  • Focus on specified and core course requirements for high school graduation, including language (English, Français and French language arts), social studies, mathematics, and science (biology, chemistry, physics and science)
  • Average of six hours of work per 5-credit semestered course per week; average of 3 hours of work per 3-credit semestered course per week​
