DSB1 Continuity of Learning Plan
The Continuity of Learning Plan outlines the overall purpose of educator-led learning during this time, as well as expectations for each division.
Our Plan addresses distance learning through a variety of methods, extending beyond online learning. The plan also includes considerations and supports for students with special education needs. Equity is one of our priorities at DSB1 and we will ensure that all families can participate in this educator-led learning.

Access to Technology
Grade 4-12 students are permitted to take an iPad home in order to complete their school work.

Individual schools will develop a procedure for providing students with access to technology.
