For the 2016- 2017 school year, SIDES is excited to offer new courses in our Kindergarten- Grade 9 program, which reflect the redesigned BC curriculum.
These courses are based on the following core competencies:
We have woven these competencies throughout our courses and are looking forward to sharing these dynamic and engaging courses with our SIDES students.
All SIDES students in our K-9 program require the support of a Home Facilitator. A Home Facilitator can be a parent, grandparent, or an adult who is designated by the parent or guardian to support the student in the home each day.
Our new program is based on a teacher-led cohort model, which means that students will engage in the program while connecting regularly with their teacher and classmates through V-classes and online discussions. Students will be expected to attend weekly V-classes with the support of their Home Facilitator. Students are also expected to submit assignments regularly for ongoing feedback.
Due to the changing demands of our courses, SIDES students will require the following to participate in our program:
