School District 60 says its Key Learning Centre in Fort St. John has recently been selected by the education ministry as one of 18 provincial online learning schools.
In a release, the school district says the centre has already been providing online and hybrid learning opportunities to students across the province for many years, and pleased to be selected by the ministry.
“Since 1984 when this School District became one of nine distance education centres the alternative programs offered to provide flexibility in learning outside the typical school building have continued to expand,” said Board Chair Helen Gilbert said in a statement.
“The Key Learning Centre supports rural and remote learners as well as those who need a different pathway to education. The Centre provides programs for learners of all ages. Becoming a provincial online school expands the reach of our excellent programs and allows us to continue to be a provincial leader in expanded educational opportunities."
The school district says the centre remains open to registrations for Kindergarten to Grade 9 programs as well as for individual courses for Grade 10 to 12 and adult students.
“Given the experience that our staff at the Key Learning Centre have, we are confident in our ability to continue to offer a number of online opportunities to students across the province,” said Superintendent Stephen Petrucci. “Our attention to great content and responsive communication serves our students and families well.”
