SHARED RESPONSIBIITY

Shared responsibility allows you to mix Online learning with Home Education learning; giving you the best of both worlds! To be honest, a lot of Home Ed parents are not too fond of Math and/or Science for example and by doing a shared program, you can register your child to do Math and Science in Online Learning and then do the rest of your courses with Home Ed Learning. A Shared Responsibility program is offered for students in Grades 4 to 12.


To qualify for a Shared Responsibility program:

FOR GRADES 4 TO 6 - a minimum of 2 of these online courses must chosen: Language Arts, Math, Science, or Social Studies. A maximum of 3 of these 4 core courses may be chosen, however, if a student wants to take all 4 core courses, this would qualify them as an online student. Online options cannot be chosen to be part of the shared program.

FOR GRADES 7 TO 9 - a minimum of 2 of these online courses must be chosen: Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, or PE/Health. A maximum of 3 of these 5 core courses may be chosen, any more than 3 core ourses chosen would qualify the student as an online student. Online options cannot be chosen to be part of the shared program.

FOR GRADES 10 TO 12 - a minimum of 20% or 7 credits to a maximum of 80% or 28 credits can be chosen as a shared responsibility program. Anything more than 28 credits would qualify the student as an online student.



Let's look at some examples:

  1. If a grade 4 to 6 student wanted to share English and Math online - this student would be 40% online (2 out of 5 courses) and 60% home education. The home education funding would be 50% of $850 equaling $510.00.

  2. If a grade 7 to 9 student wanted to share Social Studies and Science online - this student would would be 33% online (2 out of 6 courses) and 67% home education.

  3. If a grade 12 student wanted to share English 30, CALM20 and two CTR courses online - this student would be 29% online (or 10/35) and 71% home education. This would make the funding for the home education portion to be 71% of $850 equaling $603.50.
