K-9 Programs

SIDES is a BC public school in School District 63 that provides free educational programs K-12 for BC residents. SIDES Kindergarten-Grade 9 programs follow the BC Ministry of Education mandated curriculum.

Please Note: With the COVID 19 pandemic, opportunities for on-site learning in Grades K-9 are currently suspended. We will monitor the Provincial Health Orders and recommendations to determine the resumption of these opportunities in the future.

 

Elementary

The elementary programs are designed to be delivered by a Home Facilitator, who is most often a parent, guardian, or other family member who can support the child at home full-time.

SIDES elementary programs offer all of the curriculum content through engaging, clearly organized lessons delivered through our online course management system, SIDES Online. Students are also provided with books and print resources that accompany the online lessons.

Please download the PDF flyer for more detailed information about our elementary programs:

SIDES students and their Home Facilitators receive support from their SIDES Teacher with program delivery, assignment feedback and assessment, weekly onsite classes, and live online vclasses. Your child’s teacher will complete formal report cards three times a year (December, March and June).

 

Middle School

Grades 6 - 8 are designed to be delivered by a Home Facilitator, who is most often a parent, guardian, or other family member who can support the child at home full-time.

Grade 9 is designed for more independent study, but parents are encouraged to stay connected and monitor their children's engagement. Grade 9 courses are offered as part of a grade 9 program (full-time SIDES student) or offered to Grades 9 students who attend a neighbourhood school but want to supplement with online courses.

SIDES 6-9 programs offer all of the curriculum content through engaging, clearly organized lessons delivered through our online course management system, SIDES Online. Students are also provided with books and print resources that accompany the online lessons.
