The Progress Report/ First Communication does not include any marks. It is simply a representation of where the child is at this point in the year. We are looking as to whether the child is following the program according to expectations, above or below expectations. This can be done in many ways such as with written or verbal assignments, not only written evaluations.
The first report card, which will be distributed at the end of January, will include marks based on various evaluations.
All workbooks have been ordered based on the subject-specific needs of the teachers. The workbooks are currently being mailed out to the QOA community. You will be receiving your child’s workbooks at your doorstep, within the next few days.
Workbooks are being offered to the QOA community at no cost to the parents/ guardians. If your child has not attended their brick-and-mortar school this academic year but you were asked to pay school fees, please contact your child’s school of origin to inquire about those fees.
The online schedules were built based on the Ministry’s guidelines for online learners. The guidelines were created to ensure the students do not spend an excessive amount of time in front of screens. The hours range between 10.5 and 15 hours per week, depending on the grade level. In respecting these guidelines, we are unable to turn academic support periods into regular class time.
According to the Quebec Education Program (QEP), science classes begin as of grade 3 only. The focus in grade 1 and 2 is on numeracy and literacy.
