Secondary Exam Schedule Dates

Expectations for remote learning on January 25th and January 26th, 2021:

Period 3 (both Cohorts A and B) will run for 150 consecutive minutes, commencing at their regular school start time.

  • Following period 3, students and staff will then have a 1-hour lunch break. 
  • Period 4 (both Cohorts A and B) will commence immediately after lunch, and will also run for 150 consecutive minutes.

There is an expectation that both 150-minute classes will have a minimum of 112 minutes of synchronous teaching and learning.  Each period will begin with a synchronous start to welcome students and begin the lesson.  A synchronous close at the end of each period is also scheduled to ensure that teachers are able to both check for continued engagement and consolidate learning.   There can be a maximum of 38 minutes of asynchronous work during each 150-minute lesson.
