A few words of advice for students considering summer school:
- Time management is critical.
You're squeezing five months worth of work into 4 weeks. Expect to spend an average of 4-5 hours each day working on your course. If you are working, volunteering, etc. this summer consider scaling back on those activities during the course, especially during the first week. That way you can get a better sense of the course's demands.
- Message your teacher if you run into trouble.
Expect a short delay in their response. Teachers will be online every week day but their schedule may not line up with yours.
- Use Full Screen when reading the course content.
It's a small thing, but it will make using the site much easier.
- Read the Course Overview
Students taking courses through SCCDSB with an exam MUST report to either St. Patrick's or UCC to write it. Students taking summer courses with exams through other school boards are also welcome write in either St. Patrick's or UCC. Make arrangements with your teacher or the SCCDSB eLearning Contact.
Should you require any support during the summer, please contact:
- Your Teacher - for any questions related to the course, such as help with assignments
Do not contact your counselor, they may not be monitoring their email.
