KTCEA COVID-19 Pandemic School Closures Parent FAQ

Is school cancelled for the rest of the school year? When will schools reopen?

KTCEA school buildings are closed until further notice to protect the health and safety of students, staff, and communities. Teachers have developed new lesson plans for students for the rest of the school year so that education can continue at home.

We will provide updates about when schools will reopen when more information is available.

What does the KTCEA Education Continuity Plan mean for my child?

The KTCEA Education Continuity Plan outlines how students will continue to learn while in-school classes are cancelled due to the pandemic emergency. Students who are on track to move forward to the next grade or to graduate will be given the resources and support that they need to be successful.

Our goal is to make sure that every student receives a year-end report card with marks based on their results.

When will home/remote learning begin?

Home/remote learning will begin on Monday April 6, 2020. All teachers will be contacting students and parents.

How will home/remote learning take place?

Teachers will be reaching out to students and parents by phone and/or email. Teachers will work with you to find ways to ensure your child is supported in their learning at home.
Teaching and learning will continue by internet and/or telephone.

What is KTCEA doing to provide continued learning for my child?

Teachers are preparing lesson plan for students. Lesson plans will have daily and
weekly assignments and goals for each grade level.

Teachers and support staff are available to every student (by phone, email, or
video conferencing) from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Will my child move onto the next grade?

Learning at home requires an open line of communication and joint effort between
students, parents, teachers, and support staff. Teachers will be in contact with
families to develop a plan and discuss options that will work best for each child.

Our goal is for every student to receive education and a year-end report card based
on their learning results. Schools will continue to provide education programming
for students, based on schoolwork completed, so that eligible students progress to
the next grade or graduate.

I don’t have a computer and/or reliable internet access at home for my child. How will my child do their homework?

Teachers will be reaching out to student to see who has access to the internet.
Teachers will also ask whether students have other tools they need, like computers
or school supplies.

In homes, where the internet is not available, teachers will work with parents to
find other options, like telephone teaching.

We will continue to follow Alberta Health Service recommendations when planning
for other ways of delivering education.
